What is ellaOne?
ellaOne is an emergency contraceptive pill that women can buy online to successfully prevent pregnancy within five days (120 hours) of unprotected sex or the failure of contraceptive methods. ellaOne, also referred to as the 'morning after pill', contains the active ingredient ulipristal acetate and is taken orally in the form of a 30mg tablet.
After multiple clinical trials, ellaOne is considered by UK qualified doctors to be far more effective than the more commonly used morning after pill. Commonly used methods of contraception, such as condoms and contraceptive tablets can have a pregnancy rate of over 10%. Therefore, ellaOne emergency contraceptive pills can give you the best chance possible of stopping an unplanned pregnancy from occurring.
How does ellaOne work?
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.
How do I use ellaOne?
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.

How effective is the Morning After Pill?
The morning after pill is not 100% effective, but there is a greater chance of preventing a pregnancy if it is taken within 12 hours of unprotected sex.
95% of expected pregnancies when taken within 24 hours of sex
85% if taken within 25-48 hours
58% if taken within 49-72 hours
ellaOne® if used correctly, is very likely that it will be effective. However, it is not effective in every case: of 100 women receiving ellaOne® up to 5 days after unprotected sex, approximately 2 will become pregnant. So, as long as you use ellaOne® correctly, it is very likely that it will be effective.
The morning after pill will not stop a pregnancy if you are already pregnant.
