How often can you use LoviOne

LoviOne does not work as well as regular methods of contraception. Your doctor, practice nurse or family planning clinic can tell you about long-term methods of contraception which are more effective in preventing you from getting pregnant.
Do not use LoviOne

In all women, emergency contraception should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. There is some evidence that LoviOne may be less effective with increasing body weight or body mass index (BMI), but these data were limited and inconclusive. Therefore, LoviOne is still recommended for all women regardless of their weight or BMI.
You are advised to speak to a healthcare professional if you are concerned about any problems related to taking emergency contraception.
Children and adolescents
LoviOne is not indicated for use before the first menstrual bleeding (menarche).
If you are worried about sexually transmitted diseases

What to do if you are sick (vomit)
If you are sick (vomit) within three hours of taking the tablet, you should immediately take another tablet.
After you have taken LoviOne
After you have taken LoviOne, if you want to have sex and are not using the contraceptive pill, you should use condoms or a cap plus spermicide until your next menstrual period. This is because LoviOne will not work if you have unprotected sex again, before your next period is due.
After you have taken LoviOne, you are advised to make an appointment to see your doctor about three weeks later to make sure that LoviOne has worked. If your period is more than 5 days late or is unusually light or unusually heavy, you should contact your doctor as soon as possible. If you do become pregnant even after taking this medicine, it is important that you see your doctor.
Your doctor can also tell you about longer- term methods of contraception which are more effective in preventing you from getting pregnant.
If you continue to use regular hormonal contraception such as the contraceptive pill and you do not have a bleed in your pill-free period, see your doctor to make sure you are not pregnant.
Your next period after you took LoviOne
After the use of LoviOne, your period is usually normal and will start at the usual day; however sometimes, this will be a few days later or earlier. If your period starts more than 5 days later than expected, an 'abnormal' bleeding occurs at that time or if you think that you might be pregnant, you should check whether you are pregnant by a pregnancy test.
If you take more LoviOne than you should
Although there have been no reports of serious harmful effects from taking too many tablets at once, you may feel sick, actually be sick (vomit), or have vaginal bleeding. You should ask your pharmacist, doctor, practice nurse or family planning clinic for advice, especially if you have been sick, as the tablet may not have worked properly.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
