Ella One contains the hormone ulipristal acetate. It helps prevent the release of eggs from the ovaries during ovulation. It also reduces the chances of a fertilised egg implanting in the womb. Without the egg being fertilised and embryo implantation, a woman's pregnancy cannot take place.


  • Ella one should only be used as an emergency pill and should not replace your regular contraceptive method.
  • If you are sick or suffer from diarrhoea within 3 hours of taking Ella One, it may not have been absorbed and will not be effective. You will need to obtain another supply as soon as possible.
  • Ella One may cause your next period to come earlier, or to be more delayed than expected, and it may be heavier or lighter than usual.
  • Emergency contraception will not protect you for the rest of your cycle.
  • Discuss the use of Ella one with your doctor in case you are on any other medication.
  • If your period is already late, you could be pregnant. Visit your fertility clinic before taking Ella One.


  • Take Ella One as soon as possible after unprotected sex.
  • The pill remains effective as long as it is used within 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex.
  • Take Ella One at any point in your cycle.
