Buy EllaOne Emergency Contraception

EllaOne Emergency Contraception is an oral contraceptive pill that is taken after unprotected sexual intercourse.

It is effective for up to 5 days after unprotected sex, however, the sooner you take it the more effective it is.

EllaOne should be used in case of emergency. It is not designed to be a replacement for regular contraception.


How EllaOne Emergency Contraception works

EllaOne Emergency Contraception works by delaying ovulation. It stops sperm from finding an egg to fertilise, preventing pregnancy. 



Always take EllaOne Emergency Contraception exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. 

Take 1 tablet as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. If you vomit within 3 hours of taking the tablet, contact your GP or pharmacist as you may need to take another one.
