Overview
BACKUP PLAN ONESTEP™ (levonorgestrel tablets) is an emergency or backup contraceptive.

Levonorgestrel tablets can prevent pregnancy after a contraceptive accident (such as a broken condom) or when no form of birth control was used. Treatment is most effective if used in the first 72 hours (3 days) following unprotected sex .

Levonorgestrel tablets cannot terminate an existing pregnancy. Although there is no scientific evidence that levonorgestrel tablets would harm a developing embryo, women who are already pregnant should not use this product.

Levonorgestrel tablets act as an emergency contraceptive by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary, or preventing sperm and egg from uniting. In addition, levonorgestrel tablets may prevent the fertilized egg from attaching to the wall of the uterus. Levonorgestrel tablets is not effective once a pregnancy has started, that is once the fertilized egg has attached to the wall of the uterus. Levonorgestrel tablets do not cause an abortion.

Levonorgestrel tablets can be used following any unprotected act of sexual intercourse, including:
  • When no contraceptive has been used
  • When a contraceptive method may have failed
  • Condom rupture, slippage, or misuse
  • Diaphragm or cap dislodgement, breakage or early removal.
  • Failure to withdraw before ejaculation.
  • Miscalculation of the fertile period by women practising periodic abstinence
Levonorgestrel tablets provide no protection against HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia and herpes.
