What is the morning after pill?
How does the morning after pill work?The morning after pill works in a similar way as ordinary contraceptive pills. It contains a hormone which makes it harder for sperm to reach an egg and for a fertilised egg to implant. It is thought that the morning after pill can also prevent ovulation.
How to take the morning after pillTake the morning after pill as soon as possible after sex. You will take one single dose. Take the tablet with a drink of water and swallow it whole without chewing.

According to the FSRH, EllaOne is more effective at preventing pregnancy up to 72 hours after unprotected sex than Levonelle, and the copper IUD is the most effective emergency contraceptive choice.
Levonelle is known as the morning after pill. It comes as a single tablet. You can take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex to protect against pregnancy. The sooner you take it, the more effective it is.
Levonelle is an emergency contraceptive pill, so you should try to limit its use to emergencies only. Don’t use it too regularly (for example, if you often forget to take your pill). If you do take Levonelle too frequently, it can make your period less regular and unreliable.
Use of emergency contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases so you should still use condoms.
About EllaOneEllaOne is similar to Levonelle but it can be taken for up to five days (120h) after unprotected sex. Despite this long window period it should be taken as soon as possible after sex. The sooner you take it, the more likely it is to be effective. If you throw up or have severe diarrhoea within three hours of taking it you need to contact your doctor as you may need to take a second pill.
How Effective is the Morning After Pill
If you are not ovulating and you take EllaOne within the 120 hour window, your chance of not getting pregnant is 98-99%. For Levonelle, if you are not ovulating and take it within 72 hours then you have a 97-99% chance of not getting pregnant.
Levonelle is not recommended if you are close to ovulation. If this is the case EllaOne is a better choice of oral emergency contraceptive pill. However, EllaOne will not work after ovulation has begun.
Levonelle does not make the contraceptive pill any less effective. So just keep taking your pill as normal and use an alternative form of protection until your regular contraceptive pill protects you again (usually seven days from the point after you skipped a pill and restarted taking it).
EllaOne can make the contraceptive pill less effective. As a result, you must use some other form of contraception 7 days after using EllaOne to ensure you are protected from pregnancy. These can include barrier methods like the diaphragm for example.
How Does the Morning After Pill Work
Levonelle and EllaOne contain chemicals that mimic the female sex hormone progesterone. They are thought to prevent ovulation, fertilisation and change the lining of the womb.
Levonelle and EllaOne trick the body into thinking that it has already ovulated, which prevents eggs being released from the ovaries. They also thickens the mucus in the cervix (the neck of the womb) which makes it harder for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb to fertilise any eggs that might be there. Finally, Levonelle and EllaOne change the lining of the womb so that any fertilised eggs cannot implant into it.
