Levenorgestrel Tablets BP
Pregnon® is a product developed for use as an Emergency Contraceptive Pill, to be used within the first 72 hours after unprotected sexual intercourse. Pregnon® is Levonorgestrel, 0.75mg tablets designed to be taken one tablet within 72 hours of intercourse and a second tablet to be taken within the ensuing 12 hours. Its mode of action is threefold.
It provides high levels of progesterone which can, depending on where the female is in her cycle, prevent release of the eggs. It also increases the thickness of the natural mucus at the cervical os, making it more difficult for the sperm to migrate from the vagina into the uterus, thereby preventing fertilization, as well as alters the lining of the endometrium, preventing it from being prepared to accept implantation of the fertilized egg.
If a viable pregnancy is already in force Pregnon® will have no effect on the foetus! Pregnon® does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Pregnon® is better suited to our tropical environment than the competing generic, as it has been formulated to remain stable to a maximum temperature of 30ºC, (86ºF) while the alternative is labeled to be stable only between 15-25ºC, (59-77ºF). Pregnon® is produced by the world’s largest manufacturer of contraceptives, with such clients as UNFPA, PSI, CROWN AGENTS-UK and PAHO. Their products have been used in projects run by DKT, WORLD BANK, IPPF and Ministries of Health all over the world.
They supply 40 countries in four continents and are completely dedicated to manufacturing only contraceptive products. Pregnon® is approved by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
