What is ellaOne?
Ulipristal acetate (trade name ellaOne) is a prescription only medication that was launched in the UK and licensed for use throughout all of Europe. It consists of one tablet with a primary mechanism of inhibiting or delaying ovulation, to help prevent pregnancy.
Recent studies have shown that ellaOne can be effective if taken, up to five days after unprotected sex, but is more effective when taken as quickly as possible. However, if vomiting occurs within three hours of taking the medication, a replacement dose should be taken, and a doctor, nurse of pharmacist should be consulted.
How to use?
One tablet should be taken orally, no later than 120hours after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. Ulipristal acetate can be taken with or without food, however if vomiting occurs within 3 hours of taking the tablet, another dose should be taken. It is not recommended to take it again during the same menstrual cycle, and alternative contraceptive methods should be used, until your next cycle.
