  • PAGB approved it is the most effective morning after pill

    ellaOne® is an emergency contraceptive pill intended to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse or contraceptive failure.

    Each tablet of ellaOne® contains 30mg of ulispristal acetate.

    ellaOne® should be taken as soon as possible, but no later than 120 hours (5 days) after UPSI or contraceptive failure.

    ellaOne® is suitable for women of reproductive age who want to avoid an unintended pregnancy.

    ellaOne® can be taken any time during your menstrual cycle.

    ellaOne® is the most effective oral emergency contraceptive.

    ellaOne® should not be used as a regular method of contraception.

    How does ellaOne® work?

    ellaOne® works by delaying ovulation (egg release). By the time an egg is released the sperm inside you are no longer capable of making you pregnant.

    ellaOne® is effective when it matters most because it can prevent pregnancy even when you are about to ovulate - which is when your risk of getting pregnant is at its greatest.

    ellaOne® 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.

    ellaOne® will not protect against future acts of sexual intercourse. After using ellaOne®, if you want to have sex, always use a reliable barrier contraceptive method such as condoms until your next period, even if you use a regular contraceptive pill. ellaOne® can temporarily make some hormonal contraceptives less effective.

    Please Note: EllaOne prevents ovulation for the woman
