Each pack of Levonelle 1500 contains a complete treatment which is one round, white tablet.
Levonelle 1500 prevents about 84% of expected pregnancies when it is taken within 72 hours ( 3 days ) of unprotected sex. Levonelle 1500 will not prevent a pregnancy in every instance but the tablet is more effective the sooner it is taken after unprotected sex (it is better to take it within 12 hours rather than delay until the third day).

It does not work if you are already pregnant. Levonelle 1500 should only be used in emergencies and not used as a regular form of contraceptive. Levonelle is a prescription-only product.
