  • EllaOne should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex; the sooner it is taken, the more effective it is at preventing unwanted pregnancy.
  • It is only effective up to 120 hours after, if it has been longer than this you should not take EllaOne and see your GP to discuss emergency contraception.
  • If you are sick or suffer with diarrhoea within 3 hours of taking EllaOne it may not have been absorbed and will not be effective. You will need to obtain another supply as soon as possible.

Unfortunately EllaOne is not 100% effective at preventing pregnancy, however it is up to 98% effective if it is taken within 120 hours of unprotected sex.

If your next period has not arrived five or more days from when it was due you should take a pregnancy test.

EllaOne contains the active ingredient ulipristal as a single dose for emergency contraception. It must be taken within 120 hours (5 days) of unprotected sex or contraceptive accident for it to be effective. EllaOne is thought to be up to 98% effective at preventing pregnancy as long as it is taken within 120 hours of the incident.

Please read the Patient Information Leaflet for side effects and additional information.

Pharmacist Tip: The sooner EllaOne is taken, the more effective it is and so it should be taken as soon as possible after the incident. A very small minority of women feel sick after taking EllaOne, if you are sick within 3 hours of taking the tablet you must obtain a further supply as you will not be covered.

If you do experience side effects from EllaOne they may include abdominal pains, nausea, sickness, dizziness, spotting or abnormal bleeding, headaches, mood changes, breast or back pain, or tiredness. Taking EllaOne with some food may help to reduce any nausea you may experience.

If you experience any adverse effects from taking your prescribed medicine it is important to let us know immediately. Please log in to your online account and message one of our healthcare professionals or alternatively call us on 0117 971 1603. In a medical emergency you should contact the emergency services or go straight to your local Accident & Emergency.

EllaOne should not cause a harmful interaction with any of your other current medicines.  Some medicines can reduce the effectiveness of EllaOne, these were checked during your online consultation. Please read the Patient Information Leaflet enclosed with your medicines for a full list of medicines that may affect EllaOne.

Do not take EllaOne if your period is already overdue as you may already be pregnant. You should see your GP or family planning clinic.

EllaOne should not replace your regular method of contraception, such as the pill or condoms; these are more reliable and effective.

About Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception Background

THE Medical Online Doctor service allows women who require an advance supply of an emergency contraceptive pill to have a private consultation with a doctor and receive the treatment they require in a safe and discreet manner.

Emergency contraception is available as advance supply to women over the age of 18. It allows women to be prepared for a contraceptive accident, unprotected sex or a missed pill, should one occur. A split condom or missed pills can happen to anyone and having a morning-after pill to take when it is required allows women the peace of mind to know they are protected in all eventualities.

This service provides an advance supply of emergency contraception for use in the future. You can get a supply of the emergency contraceptive pill in advance of having unprotected sex from our Online Doctor if you:

  • Are worried about your contraceptive method failing
  • Are going on holiday
  • Cannot get hold of emergency contraception easily

If you need an immediate supply following a contraceptive accident or unprotected sex you should see your GP or your local pharmacy to ensure you can take your emergency contraception as quickly as possible.

It is important to note that if you have had unprotected sex or have had a contraceptive accident, emergency contraception can help to prevent pregnancy, however it does not protect against STIs such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea. If you have had unprotected sex you should have an STI check at your GP surgery or local sexual health clinic.

For advice on what to do if you have missed one or more contraceptive pills, see the NHS Choices website.

We are also able to supply contraceptive tablets (the ‘pill’) to allow you to obtain a repeat supply of your regular contraceptive pill without the need to see your GP.

 

Emergency Contraception Treatment

There are two available single dose treatments for emergency contraception; Levonelle and EllaOne. They both contain synthetic hormones that act either by preventing the release of an egg for the ovaries, preventing sperm from fertilising an egg that has already been released or preventing a fertilised egg from embedding into the womb lining.

The morning-after pill should only be taken once in a menstrual cycle at most and for the rest of the cycle you should use barrier contraception such as a condom, even in addition to your regular contraceptive pill. The emergency contraceptive pills do not provide any lasting contraceptive cover for the rest of your cycle. Levonelle and EllaOne should not be used as a regular form of contraception. They should be taken as soon as possible after the contraceptive accident, ideally within the first 24 hours.

The emergency contraceptive pill does not normally affect your period, however it can make it earlier or later than expected. If your period is more than 7 days late or usually light or short, you should take a pregnancy test or see your GP to check for pregnancy.

Although they are generally well tolerated, like all medicines the emergency contraceptive pills can cause some side effects. The most common side effects include: 

  • Abdominal pain
  • Headache
  • Irregular menstrual bleeding (spotting or heavy bleeding) before your next period is due
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness

It is important to note that if you vomit or suffer with diarrhoea within 3 hours of taking your pill, it may not be fully absorbed. You should see your local pharmacist or GP for a repeat supply.

There are no identified medical conditions that would make Levonelle unsuitable for use. EllaOne should not be used by women who: 

  • May already be pregnant
  • Are allergic to any of the components of the drug
  • Have severe asthma that is not properly controlled by steroids
  • Have hereditary problems with lactose metabolism

For those who do not want to take emergency hormonal contraception or those for whom it is not suitable, a copper intrauterine device (IUD) can be fitted within 120 hours (5 days) of the incident. It is 99.9% effective if fitted with this time period and can also be used as ongoing contraception.
