ellaOne is a new emergency contraceptive pill that can prevent pregnancy for up to five days after you have had unprotected sex. Based on results from clinical trials, this variety of emergency contraceptive is thought to be 98% effective overall, however it’s most effective if it’s taken as soon as possible. It contains the active ingredient ulipristal acetate, which can influence the womb environment so that it’s temporarily less likely for a pregnancy to occur.
"If your usual contraceptive has let you down or you didn’t use protection, emergency contraception can be used to reduce the risk of pregnancy significantly."
