ella® is an oral emergency contraceptive pill (a.k.a. morning after pill) containing ulipristal acetate. If you have had unprotected sex, or your contraception has failed, taking ella® can help prevent unplanned pregnancy.
ella® can be effective for up to 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. However, like all morning after pills, it is more effective the sooner you take it.
ella® comes in 1 convenient, 30-mg pill. That’s it! It is important to take ella® as soon as possible, as emergency contraception is most effective the sooner it is taken following unprotected sex or birth control failure.
