Description

Unwanted-72 is an emergency contraceptive designed to prevent unwanted pregnancy. This pill contains synthetic progestin, which stimulates the menstrual cycle. Unwanted pregnancies can occur due to failure of contraceptives or unprotected intercourse.

Unwanted pregnancies can be stressful and can hamper a woman's health. However, it is considered better to prevent an unwanted pregnancy than going for an abortion at a later stage.

Uses

Unwanted pregnancy

About the company

Mode of Action

This medicine contains levonorgestrel as an active ingredient. This ingredient is a synthetic progestin. When this compound enters the blood, it prevents the development of hormones like luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Both these hormones contribute to reproductive processes like egg development, its release from the ovaries, and implantation of the egg in your uterine lining.

The working of this tablet depends on your reproductive cycle. If the egg is still to be produced, then this tablet will prevent its production. If your ovaries have produced an egg, then this tablet prevents the egg's fertilisation by the sperm. If the sperm has already fertilised the egg before consumption of this tablet, then it prevents the egg from attaching to the uterine lining.
