ellaOne is a single dose tablet which is taken as soon as possible and no later than 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. You can take it at any point of your menstrual cycle.
If vomiting occurs within 3 hours after taking the tablet, take another dose as soon as possible.
ellaOne should not be taken with another emergency contraceptive pill, Levonelle.
Note: EllaOne can make your regular hormonal contraceptives temporarily less effective. If you are currently taking hormonal contraception, continue to take it but use an extra contraceptive method eg. condom until your next period. Some medicines can also make EllaOne less effective (see ' cautions' below). If you have taken these medicines recently, your doctor may suggest you another method of emergency contraception.
As with any medicine, ellaOne can produce side effects, although not everyone gets them. The most common side effects reported for ellaOne are headache, nausea, painful periods, stomach pain, tiredness or dizziness. It is important that if you experience dizziness that you avoid driving or operating machinery.
Some symptoms such as breast tenderness or heaviness, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting can be a sign of pregnancy. If you your period is more than 5 days late after taking EllaOne and you experience these symptoms, you should see a GP or have a pregnancy test.
The full list of side effects can be found on the patient information leaflet attached below.
Some medications can interact with ellaOne and decrease its effectiveness, so they should not be taken at the same time:
Women who would like to obtain a supply of ellaOne from Medicinesbymailbox, to keep as a standby for use at short notice, MUST first read important medical information and answer a short yes/no online questionnaire. At the end of the questionnaire women can request one or two ellaOne tablets, enter a delivery address and make a payment.
Doctors review each request and issue prescriptions for the ellaOne tablet(s). Medication is posted from a UK registered pharmacy.
If intercourse has already taken place and a morning after pill is needed a pharmacist or doctor should be consulted straightaway.
An online delivery service should NOT be used when immediate treatment is required. There will be a delay of a day or more before tablets are delivered.
The 'Patient Information Leaflet' supplied with medication must be read before taking tablets.
