What is ellaOne?
EllaOne, is used as a morning-after contraception pill
for the prevention of an unwanted pregnancy. The emergency birth control pill is used in the event of a failed contraception method, such as a torn condom, or if the regular birth control pill was forgotten, or after unprotected intercourse.
Effect of the emergency contraception
The morning-after pill contains the active ingredient, ulipristal acetate, and changes the effect of the natural hormone progesterone, which induces ovulation. Thus ovulation is postponed, and the sperm becomes ineffective.
After taking the pill you can expect your menstruation to return at the usual time. A late period does not necessarily mean that a pregnancy took place. The effect of the morning-after pill is almost 100%, since statistically only two out of 100 women become pregnant even after taking the emergency pill.
How to use ellaOne?
One pill has to be taken orally with some water. The medication should not be administered later than five days after the unprotected intercourse. Nutrition does not have any effect on the pill. If you need to vomit within 3 hours after ingesting the pill, you have to take another one, since the effect is otherwise not guaranteed.
How long after can the morning-after pill be taken?
You should take the morning-after pill as fast as possible after the relevant intercourse, but no later than five days or 120 hours after. Sperm can live up to five days after intercourse in a woman’s body, and the egg can become fertilized during that time.
The emergency pill can be taken at any time during the menstrual cycle.
Like most medication, taking the emergency contraception pill can cause side effects for some women. Be aware that symptoms such as nausea, stomach ache, vomiting, and a feeling of tension can be signs of pregnancy. Should the period be absent for much longer than usual, it is recommended to do a pregnancy test and consult the doctor.
Side effects that can occure

The morning-after pill may affect the menstrual cycle and the next period might be a few days early or late.
