    ellaOne is a contraceptive which is intended to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed. This includes unprotected sex, if a condom tore or if you did not take your contraceptive pill as directed.

    ellaOne contains the substance ulipristal acetate which acts by modifying the activity of the natural hormone progesterone which is necessary for ovulation to occur. As a result, this medicine works by postponing ovulation.

    If you are worried about unwanted pregnancies occurring then ellaOne can be an effective drug when taken in a post-unprotected sex capacity.

    ellaOne is an over-the-counter medication, meaning that you can easily buy it online without the need for a prescription. Always follow the medical advice and read the patient information leaflet provided in the medication packet.

    Take one tablet orally as soon as possible and no later than 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. This can be taken at any point during your menstrual cycle and at any time of day.

    ellaOne is not intended to be used as a form of regular contraception, but a solution for times when other methods have failed. If you have unprotected sex after taking the tablet, it will not stop you from becoming pregnant, and you should look into other contraception methods.

    About Emergency Contraception

    1. About Emergency Contraception

    The morning after pill has many different names and connotations, some of them being “Plan B” and “Emergency Contraception”. These are pills taken to prevent an unwanted pregnancy providing it is taken shortly after intercourse.

    Morning after pills are prescription medication and requires a doctor's prescription, they can prevent pregnancy (providing they are taken within the recommended time frame).

    2. How long after intercourse can you take emergency contraception?

    Emergency contraception is used to prevent the conception of a baby, after unprotected sex has occurred.

    It’s good to highlight that the morning after pill is not used to abort a baby, but instead to prevent the woman from having an unwanted pregnancy. This is done by preventing the women from releasing an egg, which ultimately stops conception from occurring. Depending on the type of morning after pill used it could be up to 72 hours or 120 hours after having unprotected sex.

If you’re sick within 3 hours of taking ellaOne then you will need to get another dose from your GP, pharmacist or GUM clinic. Another fact about ellaOne is that there are no serious side effects of using ‘the morning after pill’.
