Frequently asked Questions about Sirf Ek

Question about 4 years ago

How does Sirf Ek work?

Dr. Abhijit MBBS , General Physician

Sirf Ek 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. Sirf Ek 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.
