Sex after ellaOne®

When can I have sex after taking ellaOne®?

ellaOne® is an emergency contraceptive pill and should only be taken after you have had unprotected sex or if the condom broke. It is not a regular contraceptive pill so will not protect you against future acts of sexual intercourse.

After using ellaOne®, if you want to have sex, make sure you’re protected. Use a reliable barrier contraceptive method such as condoms until your next period, even if you use a regular contraceptive pill.
