FDA Recommended Dosage Guidelines for Postcoital Emergency Contraception

The FDA has declared oral contraceptives safe and effective for emergency contraception. Vomiting, sometimes severe enough to prevent the pills from working, and nausea are potential side effects. The dosing regimens for ethinyl estradiol/levonorgestrel can be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse with a follow-up dose of the same number of pills 12 hours after the first dose:

Levlen: Four light orange tablets.
Nordette: Four light orange tablets.
Triphasil: Four yellow tablets.
Tri-Levlen: Four yellow tablets.

The Preven Emergency Contraceptive Kit is intended to prevent pregnancy after known or suspected contraceptive failure or unprotected intercourse. Emergency contraceptive pills (like all oral contraceptives) do not protect against infection with HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.

The Preven Emergency Contraceptive Kit consists of a patient information book, a urine pregnancy test and 4 emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs).

The pills in the Preven Emergency Contraceptive Kit are combination oral contraceptives (COCs) which are used to provide postcoital emergency contraception.

Each blue film-coated pill contains 0.25 mg levonorgestrel (18,19-Dinorpregn-4-en-20-yn-3-one, 13-Ethyl-17-hydroxy-, (17a)-(-), a totally synthetic progestogen, and 0.05 mg ethinyl estradiol (19-Nor-17a-pregna-1,3,5, (10)-trien-20-yne-3,17-diol). The inactive ingredients present are polacrilin potassium, lactose, magnesium stearate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, titanium dioxide, polyethylene glycol, polysorbate 80 and FD&C blue no. 2 aluminum lake.

The Pregnancy Test uses monoclonal antibodies to detect the presence of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) in the urine. It is sensitive to 20 to 25 mIU/ml.
