What is ellaOne?
Like other morning after pills, ellaOne works by releasing progesterone. This hormone tricks the body into thinking an egg has already been released by the ovaries. By doing this it prevents any eggs from being fertilized by sperm. Clinical trials show that two out of 100 women that took ellaOne became pregnant giving it a 98% success rate.
How does ellaOne work?
ellaOne tablets are taken within 5 days of having unprotected intercourse or other methods of protection have failed. However it is more effective the sooner you take it. The pill is usually well tolerated amongst women but if you do become sick (vomit) within 3 hours of taking ellaOne you will need to take another pill.
All medicines do have side effects associated with taking them however not everyone will suffer from them. Keep in mind that the benefits of taking ellaone are more important than some minor side effects. All medication will come with side effect information from the manufactures. Common side effects include:
- Skin reaction/rashes
- Stomach ache
Can I buy ellaOne online?
First you must complete a free, short consultation online with our doctor to buy ellaOne emergency pill. This is confidential and a free process that replaces the face-to-face appointment that you would normally undergo to receive a prescription medication. The medication will be sent from our pharmacy to arrive to you once the online doctor has approved you the medication.
Girls, this pill does work! After a major pregnancy panic this month, I wanted to share my experience. I took EllaOne on day 10 on my cycle, 6 hours after the condom broke, I was petrified that it’s too late to take and that my ovulation happened in the meantime as my cycles are very regular, of 26 days. But I took EllaOne because I read some reports that it is more effective than Levonorgestrel especially close to actual ovulation. I took Plan B in the past but this was my first experience with EllaOne and the side effects hard not to notice. For the first few days I felt really sleepy, I had cramps here and there like before my period. Then about a week after the pill my breasts got so swollen and sore, I had real discomfort wearing a bra and was still dealing with cramps. Throughout this time I also had some mood swings and later on pretty much regular PMS symptoms. And finally today, on day 28 my period came!!! So overall I am so happy I took it because I really believe it helps!

Going to share my experience using Ella one to ladies who are stressing- I took the pill the next day after I protected sex with my partner, however it made me very sick and I threw up just at the 3 hour limit, didn’t take the risk and bought another one- which messed up my system. The bloating and anxiety I experienced over the next month was horrible and I started spotting at the time my period was due which I thought was implantation bleed. However negative tests and my period was 3 weeks. This pill works but has its side effects x

I had unprotected sex (a very stupid decision) with my boyfriend about a week before I was due my period. He didn’t ejaculate inside of me but I wasn’t planning on risking it. The following day I took EllaOne, and I was then advised to start taking the pill 5 days after consuming EllaOne. After 6 days on the contraceptive pill, my period came heavily. I’ve been panicking still if I’m pregnant, but the chances are very unlikely. The sooner you take it the better ladies!

I had sex on my fertile days and the condom broke. After 12 hours I took EllaOne and I hadn’t any side effects that day. The day after I started having a severe stomach ache and it lasted 5 days, then it started the back ache and the breast ache. I was 100% sure to be pregnant cause I’ve never been that sick. So after 10 days I took a pregnancy test and it resulted positive.. I was both mentally and physically exhausted. The day after I went to the counselling and they decided to make me do a blood test. At the end I wasn’t pregnant.. (best day of my life). My advice is to not be anxious, just try to stay calm even if you have severe aches… it is just for the big quantity of hormones into the pill.

My first time ever taking this pill. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on the 29th of May which was the day I was Ovulating so naturally I started to panic. I know it was silly to have unprotected sex but sometimes we are just down right silly.

Hi ladies! I write to share my positive experience with ella one. It works:) however I wish I will never need it again in my whole life ! Because the stress and side effects are hard! I took the pill 40 hrs after unprotected sex. Some hours later I had light pink spotting, just a little.Then the day after I didn’t feel good and was weak. I also experienced my body heating up suddenly and had fever but it didn’t last more than 15 min or so. One weak later I had backache and had similar feeling as I was about to get my period however it wasn’t the time. So it was strange and scary. Afterwards everything was ok until the day I expected my period to come! It didn’t come !! and I was so stressed it made me crazy. Every day passed and still nothing. Every morning I woke up with crying but…finally 10 days later after the expected day of period, it came! So relax! just give your body enough time to get back to normal again.

I used it twice within 18 months.The second time I took it in 112 hours after the coitus and it still worked. There was no discomfort or pain. However, my cycle has stabilized only in 4 months after taking the pill for the first time and in 6 months after taking the second pill.

The amount of anxiety I had after using this pill — makes me NEVER want to ever go without protection/abstain from sex. No amount of pleasure is worth a pregnancy scare, or being in dying moments of anxiety waiting and waiting for your period to show up. Yes, this is used in emergencies, but the real wait begins AFTER you take it. I was on hormonal BC for 2 years, and recently got off it — and it was totally effective for me. Never had to second guess when my period would come, it ALWAYS came when I took the sugar pills. However, the feeling of NOT knowing because of previous unprotected sex is HORROR. I took this pill 13 days ago, and got my period on time. Not worth the major stress.
