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 diaphragm) 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, as long as you are not ovulating. 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.
It is possible that EllaOne could be less effective at preventing pregnancy if you have take the contraceptive pill in the last 7 days. EllaOne may also be less effective if you have a BMI of 30 or higher.
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 can cause a wider range of side effects, which is why you may wish to choose Levonelle to prevent pregnancy from sex within the past 72 hours. However, EllaOne is also more effective than Levonelle at preventing pregnancy. EllaOne is also not recommended for women who are breastfeeding.
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.
EllaOne can cause side effects.

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.
Did not work and am now pregnant :(
Quick and easy. Saved me time and prevention of taking it too late. Also save me the embrassement of asking in store.
The product did not arrive!
Order day before and ready by 11am the next. Great!
Excellent with very fast service
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
Great service. Really fast delivery! Highly recommend
Great and efficient service
Everything was easy and straight forward and the whole process was very quick. Even though this is online I still felt cared for. I am very impressed with this service and would use it again.
Easy, straight-forwards, reliable and discreet.
Good prompt professional service. Thank you
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.
Product as described. Problem with website so I couldn't check my account to see if product had been despatched so had to call instead. Item did arrive next day as required.
Really good service, thank you
Was great service and helped me when I needed it most
