What is ellaOne?

ellaOne (ulipristal acetate 30mg) is an emergency contraceptive pill (morning-after-pill). This emergency contraceptive can help to prevent pregnancy if used within 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex or where standard contraceptive methods have failed. Having undergone clinical studies, this emergency contraceptive method is said to be 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. Only 2 in every 100 women who took the medication became pregnant during trials. ellaOne (ulipristal acetate) has also proven to be effective for longer compared to the other popular emergency contraception - Levonelle (levonorgestrel).

How does ellaOne work?

This emergency pill contains the active ingredient, ulipristal acetate - a selective progesterone receptor modulator which goes to work by acting on the body's receptors for the naturally occurring female sex hormone – progesterone.

This emergency contraceptive is believed to work by preventing fertilisation by stopping ovulation and by altering the womb's lining, depending on which period of the menstrual cycle you're at. Although there is no certainty of how the treatment works exactly, it is said that similar to standard hormonal contraceptives, the active ingredient tricks the body into thinking that ovulation has already taken place, thus preventing the release of an egg from the ovaries.

The entire process from fertilisation to implantation in the womb can take anywhere up to 5 days, so the sooner this pill is taken after unprotected sex, the more effective it will be in preventing pregnancy.


ellaOne (ulipristal acetate) is effective for a longer duration (120 hours), compared to the only other known morning after pill - Levonelle Plan B. No emergency contraceptive is 100% effective and it must be understood that the effectiveness of this morning-after pill reduces for each day it is not used up to the 5-day deadline. Therefore the earlier it is used, the higher the chance of success.

Who can use it?

You can place an order for this emergency contraceptive pill if you are over the age of 18 and have had unprotected sex or experienced contraceptive failure. The 30mg dosage should be used only when necessary rather than treated as a regular form of contraception.

ellaOne is completely safe for the majority of women to take. For those who are currently breastfeeding, you should leave at least 36 hours after you take this medication before you start breastfeeding again. If you think you may already be pregnant, do not take this pill. Also, do not take more than one pill during the same menstrual cycle.

Particular medications that are taken to treat epilepsy, bacterial and HIV infections, as well as herbal treatments used to fight anxiety and depression, can make ellaOne less effective at preventing pregnancy. Please indicate any other treatments you are taking in the online consultation.

Who cannot use it?

This emergency contraceptive is not suitable for use by:

  • Women with liver problems
  • Women who are allergic to its active ingredient

  • Women who are breastfeeding or already pregnant
  • Women who are suffering from sever asthma, gastrointestinal and malabsorption problems

The effectiveness of emergency contraceptive pill may be limited or compromised if it is used more than 120 hours (five days) after the initial intercourse as you may already be pregnant.


When using the ellaOne pill, it is important to remember to:

  • Take the 30mg ulipristal acetate tablet no later than 5 days after you have had unprotected sex. You can take the pill with or without food
  • Contact your doctor if you are physically sick within less than 3 hours after taking ellaOne. Based on your symptoms, they will discuss whether a second dosage is safe.

The pill can be taken anytime during your menstrual cycle. If you choose to have unprotected sexual intercourse again during this period, you will not be able to take another morning after pill. Remember to use a contraceptive barrier until your next menstrual cycle. If you’re taking a daily contraceptive pill, these can be continued as normal after taking this pill.

Side Effects of ellaOne

Fortunately, this emergency contraceptive pill causes no major side effects for women. At the very worst, you might experience:

  • Nausea, mild bouts of dizziness, drowsiness, blurred vision and difficulty concentrating.

To date, no life threatening side effects have been reported in studies. If you do happen to experience any adverse or allergic reactions after using a ellaOne pill then it's important that you consult your doctor in the first instance.

FAQs - ellaOne

Can I use other contraceptive methods after ellaOne?

After using ellaOne it is essential that you start using your standard hormonal contraceptives if you previously did before. So, you can continue to use your pill, patch, or vaginal ring as normal 12 hours after using the ellaOne morning after pill. Depending on the hormonal contraceptive type, a barrier contraceptive such as a condom will also be required for at least between 7-15 days.

  • Combined contraceptive pill, vaginal ring or contraceptive patch - 14-17 days
  • POPs (progestogen-only mini pills) - 9 - 12 days
  • Does my weight affect if I can use ellaOne?

    In general terms most women of varying sizes can use ellaOne morning-after pill. Unfortunately, if your BMI (body-mass-index) is over 35 then it may prove less effective, but can still be used.

    Will I be protected from STIs using emergency contraception?

    No, hormonal contraceptives, including emergency contraceptives such as ellaOne do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. It is essential that a protective measure such as a condom is used to lessen the chance of contracting an STI.

    Is the morning-after pill the same as 'abortion' pills?

    No, emergency contraceptives such as ellaOne only work before pregnancy has begun and will not be effective if the woman is already pregnant.
