Product Description

Information about EllaOne

ellaOne is a quick contraception pill usually taken as an emergency measure. It can be taken a day after unprotected sex or in cases of failure in contraceptive methods or devices to avoid unwanted pregnancy. The most common contraceptive issues are condom tearing during intercourse and failure to take contraceptive pills before intercourse. The effectiveness of ellaOne can reach up to 95% if ingested within 24 hours after sexual intercourse. The pill can still be consumed up to 120 hours after sex but with decreasing potency.

How ellaOne works

Each ellaOne tablet contains Ulipristal Acetate, povidone K30, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate and lactose monohydrate. Once ingested, these compounds work together to alter the lining of the womb to prevent the fertilized egg from planting itself on the uterine wall, therefore preventing pregnancy. ellaOne works best if taken within 24 hours after sex. As with other contraceptive methods, there’s still a small chance for pregnancy even after taking this medication. Immediately consult your physician if you feel like the pill did not work properly.

Advantages and disadvantages of ellaOne

The main advantage of ellaOne over other contraceptive pills is that it can help prevent pregnancy up to 120 hours after unprotected sex. Other pills’ potency can last only up to 72 hours after intake. The increased duration of protection has one major drawback for ellaOne: it has a slightly lower chance of success compared to ordinary contraceptive pills.

ellaOne may also have some side effects like vomiting and nausea, fatigue, abdominal pain, period pains, headaches, and dizziness. Other rarer side effects that have a very slim chance to occur include diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, urinary tract infection, acne, migraine, abnormal vaginal bleeding, vaginal inflammation, genital itching, acid reflux, dehydration, nose bleeding, joint pain, and hives.
