The company responds positively, the Ministry of Health will continue with the process and analysis to determine if a permit will be issued, explained Ileana Herrera, head of registration. The official added that the process for this pill is the same as that applied with any other medications; that is, it does not require an additional “protocol” or “regulation” issued by that entity.

Sold only by prescription. In the event a Health permit is granted, Levonorgestrel could be prescribed by doctors in private practice or the CCSS
