EllaOne is a emergency contraceptive pill, also known as ‘morning after pill’, is an immediate method for females to avoid pregnancy. This stops you from getting pregnant if you have had an unprotected sex. However, it is not recommended on a daily basis. This pill prevents the released of the egg from ovaries. Moreover, it does not allow the sperm to fertilize the egg. You should take the emergency contraceptive pills within 24 hours of unprotected sex. Although recommended time last for 72 hours, the pill reduces its efficiency with time. The effectiveness of this is around 98% when taken with 24 hours. If you vomit after taking the pill, immediately take another one. The emergency pill does not work for women who weigh more than 70 kg.

EllaOne tablet is known as ‘morning after pill’. It reduces the chances of getting pregnant after an unprotected sex. EllaOne contains an active ingredient, ulipristal acetate. It represents the progestogen (the female sex hormone). Ulipristal hormone delays the release of the egg from the ovaries and prevents ovulation in the body. This medicine works only for 5 days (after unprotected sex). However, it is better to take the tablet as early as possible. EllaOne is not to be used on a regular basis.

Questions & Answers

Who can use the morning after pill?

The morning after pill is available online to women strictly above 18 years of age, usually to order in preparation for a future potential contraceptive emergency. However, if you need help urgently, you will need to visit your GP or a GUM clinic as soon as possible. Levonelle medicine is widely available to purchase over-the-counter for girls aged 16 years and above.

How does it work?

The morning after pills work by delaying or stopping ovulation. Sperm can survive for a maximum of 120 hours (5 days) in the female body after engaging in sex. If ovulation does not happen within this time frame, fertilization will not occur. The lining of the womb may also get affected by the medicine. This will decrease the chances of implantation even further.

Will it prevent contracting STIs?

NO. Only contraceptives which contain a physical barrier (condoms) help prevent against STIs.

Which morning-after pills are available in the UK?

There are currently two different types of pills available: Levonelle and EllaOne.
