Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
It prevents pregnancy by delaying or inhibiting ovulation and inhibiting follicle rupture.The levonorgestrel 1500 μg taken within 3 days of unprotected sex,some people say it can be effective as late as 120 hours (5 days) after intercourse .In my opinion you don`t need to repeat the drug.
Wish you good health

Hi. I usually take Marvelon as my birth control pill but took 3 weeks off it and then started taking it again when my week off would have been had I been taking it. the same day I started it I took levonelle as I thought I had had unprotected sex 2/3 nights before (which turned out I didnt). I then had unprotected sex about 10 or 11 hours after taking the 7th pill in the pack. I am just wondering what the chances of pregnancy are?

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
