Levonorgestrel से जुड़े सवाल और जवाब

सवाल 9 months पहले

How does Levonorgestrel work?

Dr. Abhijit MBBS, General Physician

Levonorgestrel contains levonorgestrel which is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring female sex hormone (progesterone). During a normal menstrual cycle, a mature egg is released from the ovaries (this process is called ovulation). For possible pregnancy, the ovary produces progesterone which prevents the further release of egg and uses the lining of the womb for pregnancy also during this period progesterone levels in the body remains high to maintain the womb lining, but if the fertilization does not take place then the levels of progesterone decreases in the body that results in menstruation. Levonorgestrel works by tricking the body into thinking that mature egg has been already released from the ovaries this results in decreased levels of progesterone in the body which prevents the release of eggs from the ovaries, it also alters the lining of the womb that prevents the pregnancy from occurring. Please keep in mind that this medicine does not work if you are already pregnant.
