is used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse (sex without
any method of birth control or with a birth control method that failed or was
not used properly [e.g., a condom that slipped or broke or birth control pills
that were not taken as scheduled]). Levonorgestrel should not be used to
prevent pregnancy on a regular basis. This medication is to be used as an
emergency contraceptive or backup in case regular birth control fails or is
used incorrectly. Levonorgestrel is in a class of medications called
progestins. It works by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary or
preventing fertilization of the egg by sperm (male reproductive cells). It also
may work by changing the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent development of
a pregnancy. Levonorgestrel may prevent pregnancy, but it will not prevent the
spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV, the virus that causes acquired
immunodeficiency syndrome [AIDS]) and other sexually transmitted diseases.
