Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to levonorgestrel (CAS RN 797-63-7). Norgestrel is synthetic steroidal progestin that is used in combination with ethinyl estradiol for oral contraception. Norgestrel is composed of a racemic mixture of two stereoisomers, dextronorgestrel and levonorgestrel (CAS RN 797-63-7).

Levonorgestrel is prescribed in combination with estradiol as hormone therapy during menopause to manage vasomotor symptoms and to prevent osteoporosis. Off-label, levonorgestrel may be used to treat menorrhagia, endometrial hyperplasia, and endometriosis. Levonorgestrel is marketed under the tradenames Jaydess®, Kyleena®, Liletta®, Mirena®, Norplant System Kit ®, Plan B and Next Choice®.
