You don’t need a prescription to buy ellaOne®. The pharmacist will need to ask you some questions about when the unprotected sex happened, and some more questions about any health conditions you may have, or medicines that you are taking, that could interact with the morning after pill.
ellaOne® has put together a guide to buying the morning after pill in the pharmacy, and explained the questions you may be asked, so that if you’re feeling nervous about the trip you can prepare yourself. Take a look at our suitability checker here.
Don’t forget – emergency contraception is most effective the sooner you take it, so don’t wait around. For more information about ellaOne®, check out All you need to know about ellaOne®.
