ellaOne - Emergency contraception delivered discreetly to your door

Even when you take the greatest care, accidents can still happen – and that’s especially true when it comes to sexual activity. If you are in need of emergency contraception, our service can deliver emergency contraception to your door in discreet plain packaging.

ellaOne has been shown to be 2.5x more effective than Levonogestral when taken within 24 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse. ellaOne can delay ovulation when levonorgestrel is no better than a placebo and is effective right up to the point of ovulation when the risk of pregnancy is the highest.

ellaOne is not an ongoing contraceptive. After taking the emergency contraceptive, you should use condoms until your next period.

If you want to get ellaOne as a precaution, in case another form of contraception fails, you can order ellaOne online from our secure online pharmacy.

We respect and guarantee your privacy when you buy the morning-after pill online. When you buy EllaOne, our UK-registered pharmacy will dispatch the item in nondescript packaging to ensure your confidentiality.

How does ellaone work

EllaOne is an emergency contraceptive pill (ECP) that works by delaying ovulation to prevent pregnancy if taken within 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. It is more effective the sooner it is taken and becomes less effective with time.

EllaOne works by blocking the hormone progesterone from being released. When the hormone is blocked, ovulation cannot occur, which prevents pregnancy from taking place.

How to take ellaOne safely

You can take ellaOne no later than 5 days (120 hours) after you’ve had sex without effective contraception. Your period may be a few days later than usual, but if it’s more than 7 days late, you should take a pregnancy test.

During your online consultation, please inform us of all other medicines you are taking, including prescribed and over-the-counter medication, herbal treatments and supplements.

This is especially important if you are:

  • Breastfeeding
  • Lactose intolerant
  • Taking medications for epilepsy, HIV, TB or that contain St John’s Wort

Side effects of ellaOne

All medicines carry the risk of side effects. Be sure to educate yourself on any potential risks before taking your medication.

Side effects can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Lapses in concentration
  • Digestion and appetite problems
  • Irregular or unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Influenza symptoms
  • Skin problems.

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. For further information regarding the safety of this medication, please consult the patient information leaflet which comes enclosed with your treatment.

If you are concerned about any of the side effects, regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

Frequently asked questions about ellaOne

Should I take it in place of my mini pill?

ellaOne is not a substitute for contraception. It should only be taken once and should never be relied on frequently.

You should speak to your doctor about the contraceptives available. They will be able to help you make an informed decision on which treatment is suitable for you.

How will I know ellaOne has worked?

Sometimes the morning-after pill can prompt menstruation, in which case you will know that the pill has worked. If this doesn't happen, you need to wait until your next period and do a pregnancy test to be sure the pill worked.

What if ellaOne doesn't work?

If you miss your next period and a pregnancy test is positive, get in touch with your GP right away.

Speak to your doctor as soon as possible if your period is more than 7 days late.

How do I take ellaOne?

Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. You can take ellaOne with or without food.

ellaOne can be taken at any time of the day and at any point during your cycle.

It’s the weekend, how can I get emergency contraception?

You need to make sure you take ellaOne within 72 hours of unprotected sex. The sooner you take it the more effective it will be. We have a special emergency line for those looking for emergency contraception. You can call us to have it dispatched immediately.

Have I left it too late?

As long as you take it within 72 hours, you should be OK, but it’s advised that you also follow up with a pregnancy test at the time of your next period.

How long does Ellaone stay in your system?

Ellaone is an emergency contraceptive pill that alters your body's hormones to delay or prevent ovulation. It is a high dose of levonorgestrel, a hormone that stays in your system for 5 days before it is completely eliminated. This ensures that the pill is as effective as possible in preventing pregnancy.
