  • a history of breast, uterine, or hormone-related cancer

Before using estradiol and levonorgestrel, tell your doctor if you have:

  • high blood pressure, angina, or heart disease
  • kidney disease
  • a history of gallbladder disease
  • asthma
  • epilepsy

If you have any of the conditions listed above, you may not be able to use estradiol and levonorgestrel, or you may need a dosage adjustment or special tests during treatment.

You may need to stop using estradiol and levonorgestrel for a short time if you will have surgery or you become ill and must stay in bed for any length of time. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using this medication.

This medication should not be used to prevent heart disease or dementia. Using estrogens long-term may actually increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, dementia, breast cancer, or blood clots. This risk is higher if you are overweight, if you smoke tobacco or have diabetes, high blood pressure, systemic lupus erythematosus, high cholesterol or high triglycerides. Talk with your doctor about your individual risks and benefits if you plan to use estradiol and levonorgestrel long-term.

Estradiol may increase your risk of developing endometrial hyperplasia, a condition that can lead to cancer of the uterus. Using levonorgestrel (a progestin) with estradiol can lower the risk of developing this condition.

Have yearly physical exams and examine your breasts for lumps on a monthly basis while using estradiol and levonorgestrel. It is important that you not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor. Call your doctor at any time if you have unusual vaginal bleeding.
