Morning after Pill

Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if the contraception you have used has failed – for example, a condom has split or you have missed a pill. The treatment comes in a single pill form and it is most effective when taken straight away although it can be effective up to 5 days afterwards. Order now and don’t delay for next day delivery.

Levonorgestrel (Levonelle) or ellaOne is a form of emergency contraceptive. They both boast individual benefits. You need to take the emergency contraceptive pill within 3 days (Levonorgestrel) or 5 days (ellaOne) of unprotected sex for it to be effective – the sooner you take it, the more effective it'll be. This form of contraception is to be used for emergency only and not as regular contraception.
Levonelle contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic (man-made) version of the natural hormone progesterone produced by the ovaries. It's thought to stop or delay the release of an egg (ovulation). It doesn't interfere with your regular method of contraception.
ellaOne contains ulipristal acetate, which stops progesterone working normally. This also works by stopping or delaying the release of an egg. Both are thought to be 95% effective if taken within their time frames.
The emergency contraceptive pill can make your next period earlier, later or more painful than usual. If you're sick (vomit) within 2 hours of taking Levonelle or 3 hours of taking ellaOne, go to your GP, pharmacist or genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic, as you'll need to take another dose or have an IUD fitted. The IUD is more effective than the contraceptive pill at preventing pregnancy – less than 1% of women who use the IUD get pregnant.
