New Product Announcement

Bayer Schering Pharma is proud to announce the availability of the first one tablet emergency
contraceptive, Postinor®-X as of 1st September 2008.
Postinor®-X contains 1.5mg of levonorgestrel and is indicated for use within 72 hours of
unprotected intercourse. It should only be used as an emergency measure. Women who present
for repeated courses of emergency contraception should seek advice to consider long-term
methods of contraception.1
Postinor®-X’s convenient one tablet regimen eliminates confusion, and efficacy based on
compliance to take a second tablet will no longer be a concern. Efficacy results also show, that the
one tablet regimen appears to be more effective than the two tablet regimen taken twelve hours
With added benefits that accompany the one tablet, we anticipate that over time, Postinor®-X may
replace all two tablet versions of the emergency contraceptive as the new gold standard.
Both Healthcare Professionals and Consumers will be advised of the availability of Postinor®-X
from 1st September 2008. You may therefore expect consumers to come in requesting a one tablet
emergency contraceptive. We thus invite you to place your orders with wholesalers to ensure of
NB: Due to the introduction of Postinor-1, Postinor-2 will be phased out progressively until existing
stock is exhausted.
Yours faithfully
Bayer Schering Pharma
