About EllaOne

Taking EllaOne

What is EllaOne?

EllaOne is an emergency contraceptive pill which contains the ingredient Ulipristal acetate. It is effective at preventing pregnancy when taken within 120 hours of unprotected sex. It works in a similar way as many contraceptive pills, by preventing your ovaries from releasing an egg.

EllaOne is not safe to be used on a regular basis and should be for emergency use only. You should talk to a nurse or doctor about a more regular method of contraception that can be used to protect you from pregnancy every time you have sex (such as a contraceptive pill or a condom) and avoid having to rely on emergency contraception.

Is EllaOne effective?

EllaOne is effective at preventing 98% of possible pregnancies when taken within the time frame of 120 hours. You mustn't take it if more than 120 hours have passed since you had sex and you mustn't take it if you are already pregnant. EllaOne does not work if you are already pregnant and it could harm your baby.

Even when taking Ellaone as advised, there remains a small risk that you may become pregnant. Speak to your doctor if you are unsure as to whether the morning after pill has worked.

How is EllaOne taken?

EllaOne is taken as one single tablet. Swallow the tablet with water. You can take the tablet before, after or without a meal. It is important that you take it as soon as possible and that you take it within 120 hours of having sex.

If you are sick within three hours of taking EllaOne you need to take another tablet.

Should I take EllaOne or Levonelle?

Which morning after pill is best for you depends partly on how long ago you had unprotected sex. Levonelle is effective for up to three days (72h) after sex, EllaOne works until up to 5 days (120h) after sex. In addition, you should tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, or any health conditions, so that they can decide which medication is best for you.

EllaOne is more likely to cause side effects, which is why you may wish to choose Levonelle to prevent pregnancy from sex within the past 72 hours.

When do you need to take Ellaone?

You should take Ellaone as soon as possible after you have had unprotected sex. 

You can take it up to 120 hours after you have had unprotected sex but the sooner you take it, the more likely it is to be effective.

Who can take Ellaone?

You mustn’t take Ellaone if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Ellaone. 

You also mustn’t take it if you are already pregnant as it won’t work but could harm your baby.

Tell your doctor if you think you could already be pregnant. It is also important that you mention if you suffer from severe asthma or liver disease or if you are taking any medication.

Side Effects

EllaOne can cause side effects.

Common side effects:

  • nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain
  • mood swings
  • headache
  • dizziness
  • painful next period, pelvic pain, breast tenderness
  • tiredness
  • muscle and back pain

Uncommon side effects:

  • digestive problems such as diarrhoea, dry mouth, heartburn and wind
  • abnormal vaginal bleeding and menstrual disorder (heavy or prolonged periods, premenstrual syndrome)
  • vaginal inflammation, vaginal discharge

  • feeling sick
  • changes in your appetite
  • emotional disorders including anxiety, agitation, trouble sleeping, sleepiness, decreased or increased libido
  • skin problems including acne, lesions and itching
  • migraine
  • visual disturbances
Which effects does EllaOne have on your period?

After taking EllaOne, you might find that you have your next period early or late. This is not unusual. If your next period is unusually heavy or unusually light, you should see a doctor to check whether you are pregnant. 

Does Ellaone cause bleeding?

EllaOne can cause the side effect of bleeding or spotting, although this is uncommon. Speak to a doctor if you experience heavy or prolonged bleeding.

Drug Interactions

Tell your doctor or pharmacist about any medication you are currently taking before taking EllaOne

  • certain medicines used to treat epilepsy
  • certain medicines used to treat HIV
  • certain antibiotics
  • antacid medications for indigestion
  • the herbal remedy St John's wort

EllaOne may also make regular hormonal contraceptives less effective. You should use a barrier contraceptive method (such as condom) until your next period.

EllaOne should not be used together with emergency contraceptives containing levonorgestrel.

Ellaone and alcohol

There is no known interaction between EllaOne and alcohol. Drinking alcohol does not reduce the effectiveness of EllaOne.

    Great product. However. Was messaged by the doctor, with a question and asked to answer before four pm so I could recieve the product the next day. I replied around half past three, yet the product arrived the following day. Not ideal as the product has some time constraints!

    prescription not ready despite my email saying it would be . the item was available to buy off the shelf and eventually after several phonecalls they were able to use this item as my prescription . the service I wanted was not provided as my prescription was a private item and I wanted a quick discreet service . they advertise being able to pick up items that will be ready and waiting with no embarrassment to patient and all with patient confidentiality . this was not the case at all. wudnt recommend unless u want every customer and member of staff to know your details

    I had a pregnancy scare and was very satisfied with the service provided by Superdrug Online Doctor. I ordered my pill in the morning and it was delivered to the nearest Superdrug in less than three hours. It is nice to be able to get and emergency pill online without having to talk to too many people. Having to take this pill is stressful, embarrassing and even if you're not really embarrassed there's always the possibility of being judged by people who really don't know much about you. Online Doctor prevents all of this and makes it easy.
