What contraception you should use after taking ellaOne®

What to do after taking ellaOne®

ellaOne® is Europe’s most effective morning after pill. If you have taken it, it is important to take extra precautions during sex until your next period to ensure it has worked.

 Always use a reliable barrier contraceptive, like condoms, until your next period.

Starting the contraceptive pill

Continuing to take the contraceptive pill

If you wish to start a regular method of contraception after using ellaOne®, you can do so but you should also use condoms until your next period. ellaOne® may make regular hormonal contraceptives, like pills and patches, temporarily less effective. If you are currently taking hormonal contraception, continue to use it as usual after taking ellaOne®, but be sure to use condoms every time you have sex until your next period.
