How does EllaOne work?
It works by inhibiting the release of eggs from the ovaries at the time of ovulation. EllaOne works differently when taken at different times in the menstrual cycle. Studies show that when ellaOne is taken in the middle of a menstrual cycle it is more effective at preventing ovulation than Levonelle.
How to take EllaOne
ellaOne is a single dose tablet which is swallowed whole as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. Unprotected intercourse is intercourse which takes place when contraception has not been used or has failed e.g. condom came off or punctured or ripped, or more than one contraceptive pill missed in a cycle.
If vomiting occurs within 3 hours a repeat dose should be taken.
As time of ovulation is unpredictable, even in women with regular cycles, emergency contraception should be taken regardless of the day of the cycle when a woman has unprotected sexual intercourse. Women requiring emergency contraception more than once in a menstrual cycle should consult a doctor or specialist contraception advisor.
