Question 4

Your pharmacist will want to ensure that you're not pregnant already and so he or she is likely to ask you if your last period was late or lighter or shorter than usual, or if it was unusual in any way.

Question 8

If you are suffering from any form of small bowel disease such as Crohn's Disease or if you have severe liver problems, your pharmacist will ask you to see a healthcare professional so that your suitability for Levonelle® One Step and/or your Levonelle® One Step dosage can be assessed.
 

Question 9

Finally, your pharmacist will ask you whether you have ever had an allergy or other reaction to levonorgestrel, which is the active ingredient in Levonelle®. It is also found in some other hormonal products that your healthcare professional may have prescribed for you in the past such as the mini-pill and some combined contraceptive pills.
