ella®: The New Emergency Contraceptive

ella®, now available in the U.S., is a revolutionary new prescription morning after pill that reduces your chance of becoming pregnant if your birth control fails or you have unprotected sex. In 2010 the FDA approved ella® as an emergency contraceptive pill (ECP) that is effective for up to 5 days after intercourse.

Choosing a Morning After Pill – ella® vs. Plan B One-Step®

ella® is available in just one dose and this morning after pill does not lose effectiveness throughout the 120 hours. In fact, ella® is thought to be an even more effective morning after pill than Plan B One-Step® in pregnancy prevention. The chances of becoming pregnant after taking the morning after pill ella® are 1 in 50, rather than 1 in 40 with Plan B One-Step®. Without any form of emergency contraception, the chances of becoming pregnant as a result of unprotected intercourse are 1 in 20.

How ella® Works

The pill ella® works by inhibiting or delaying ovulation, essentially delaying the release of the egg and prohibiting it from joining with the sperm. Sperm can live in the reproductive tract of a woman for 5 days and ella® delays ovulation throughout this period. The morning after pill ella® is not effective in women who are already pregnant and should not be used by those who knowingly are pregnant. ella® can be taken at any time during the monthly menstrual cycle, including just before ovulation – the time when you are most fertile and likely to get pregnant.

There is no long-term impact on a woman’s fertility if she would like to become pregnant in the future after taking the morning after pill ella®. Emergency contraception is not intended for continual, routine use and is only for use in women who have experienced, or suspect they may have experienced, contraceptive failure.
