There is a lot riding on this small pill, and you’ll want to be reassured that it is working as intended. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know whether ella® has worked until your next period arrives.
ella® can make your next period late, so even if it is a few days later than usual, try not to panic, this is quite common. If your period is more than 7 days later than expected, you should get a pregnancy test and talk to your Doctor or pharmacist.
Some side effects of ella® have been likened to the early signs of pregnancy. Things like breast tenderness, stomach pain and nausea or vomiting can occur either as a side effect after using ella®, or as a symptom of pregnancy.
