Description

Levest coated tablets are a combined oral contraceptive and belongs to a group of products often referred to as “the
Pill”. You take it to stop you getting pregnant. Levest contains two hormones: oestrogen (Ethinylestradiol) and
progestogen (Levonorgestrel). These hormones prevent you from getting pregnant by working in three ways: by
preventing an egg being released from your ovaries; by making the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker, which makes it
more difficult for sperm to enter the womb; and by preventing the lining of your womb thickening enough for an egg to
grow in it.

Levest is a 21-day Pill – you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills.

The benefits of taking the Pill include:

  • it is one of the most reliable reversible methods of contraception if used correctly
  • it doesn’t interrupt sex
  • it usually makes your periods regular, lighter and less painful
  • it may help with pre-menstrual symptoms

Levest will not protect you against sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia or HIV. Only condoms can help
to do this.
