The uses of Nordette/Monofeme/Levlen ED include: Nordette is an oral contraceptive. Nordette tablets contain two hormones (levonorgestrel and ethinyloestradiol), which prevent you from becoming pregnant if taken correctly. They are similar to the hormones that your body normally produces.
Nordette prevents pregnancy in several ways:
#It inhibits the egg release by stopping it maturing
#It changes the cervical mucus consistency making it difficult for the sperm to reach the egg
#It changes the lining of the uterus making it less suitable for implantation.
Your doctor may have prescribed Nordette for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Nordette has been prescribed for you.
