Product Description

Emergency Contraceptive Consilient 1500mcg Tablet

What is Consilient Emergency Contraceptive and what it is used for?

Consilient Emergency Contraceptive 1500 micrograms tablet is indicated for emergency contraception within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse or failure of a contraceptive method.

Consilient Emergency Contraceptive contains a synthetic hormone-like substance called Levonorgestrel. It prevents about 84% of expected pregnancies when you take it within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. It will not prevent a pregnancy every time and is more effective if you take it as soon as possible after unprotected sex. It is better to take it within 12 hours rather than a delay until the third day.

Consilient Emergency Contraceptive is thought to work by:

• Stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg;
• Preventing sperm from fertilising any egg you may have already released

Consilient Emergency Contraceptive can only prevent you becoming pregnant if you take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It does not work if you are already pregnant or if you have unprotected sex after taking Emergency Contraceptive.

What you need to know before you take Emergency Contraceptive

• Do not use Consilient Emergency Contraceptive if you are allergic to levonorgestrel or any of the other ingredients of this medicine listed


• Prevents 84% of expected pregnancies when taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex
• 1500 micrograms tablet

Warnings and Precautions

If any of the following applies to you, talk to your doctor before taking this Contraceptive as Emergency Contraception may not be suitable for you. Your doctor may prescribe another type of Emergency Contraception for you.

• If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. This medicine will not work if you are already pregnant. If you are already pregnant, Consilient Emergency Contraceptive cannot terminate pregnancy, so Consilient Emergency Contraceptive is not an "Abortion Pill"

You may already be pregnant if:

- Your period is more than 5 days late, or you have experienced unusual bleeding when you next period is due
- You have had unprotected sex more than 72 hours ago, and since your last period.
• Levonorgestrel is not recommended for young women under 16 years of age without medical supervision.
• The use of Consilient Emergency Contraceptive is not advised and further medical advice should be sought if:
- You have a disease of your small bowel (such as Crohn's disease) that inhibits the absorption of the drug
- You have severe liver problems
- You have a history of Ectopic pregnancy (where the baby develops somewhere outside the womb)
- You have ever had a disease called Salpingitis (inflammation of the fallopian tubes)
- You have a problem with Galactose intolerance, the lapp lactose deficiency or glucose - galactose malabsorption

How often can you use Emergency Contraceptive?

You should only use Consilient Emergency Contraceptive in emergencies and not as a regular method of contraception. If Consilient Emergency Contraceptive is used more than once in a menstrual cycle , it is less reliable and is more likely to upset your menstrual cycle (period).

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.

Always use this medicine exactly as described in the Patient Information Leaflet or as your pharmacist has told you.

Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure

Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Use in children and adolescents:

This medicine is not recommended for use in children. If you are under 16, you must visit your doctor or family planning clinic to get Emergency Contraception.

• Take the tablet as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours, and no later than 72 hours (3 days) after you have had unprotected sex. Consilient Emergency Contraceptive Consilient can be taken at any time in your menstrual cycle assuming you are not already pregnant or think you may be pregnant. Do not chew but swallow the tablet whole with water. Do not delay taking the tablet. The tablet works better the sooner you take it after having unprotected sex.

• If you are already using a regular method of contraception such as the contraceptive pill, you can continue to take this at your regular times.

After you have taken Consilient Emergency Contraceptive

After you have taken Consilient Emergency Contraceptive, 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 Consilient Emergency Contraceptive won?t work if you have unprotected sex again, before your next period is due.
