This brand is owned by Pfizer, a large pharmaceutical company but the same medication is also made and distributed by other pharmaceutical concerns but it is registered under other names. These medications can be found if you want to buy Alesse but cheaper - you should look for Generic Alesse to do so.
The active substance of the medication, Levonorgestrel, was discovered in the early 1960s and first used as a birth control medication in 1968.
Levonorgestrel is an artificially made progestin, a steroid female hormone, with a birth control effect due to gestagenic and antiestrogenic features.
When taken by mouth following the regular dose regimen, the preparation interferes with ovulation and fertilization (getting pregnant). Levonorgestrel agent can as well promote the alterations in the endometrium that make the implantation of a fertilized egg impossible during the birth control means use. Besides, Alesse pills elevate the tenacity of the cervix discharges, which doesn’t allow the sperm to advance. But you must note that the preparation is ineffective if the implantation had happened.
There are different types of the medication. There are pills that are taken daily to prevent unwanted pregnancy, emergency pills taken only after an unprotected sex, and intra-vaginal systems set up by a gynecologist to regulate the uterus function.

It is not encouraged to use the pills more frequently than once every four to six months.

The birth control tablets for daily intake must be started to be used on the first day of the menstruation or on Sunday following the beginning of the menstruation.
