ellaOne’s My Morning After magazine was launched in 2018 to help share stories, spread facts and smash the stigma around the morning after pill.
Since launching, we have received over 250 My Morning After stories from people all over the world who want to share their experience with emergency contraception.
We want this platform to help reassure anyone who is worried about emergency contraception, as well as providing an outlet for good, bad and every experience in between.
Our online magazine includes feature stories and interviews, informative #AskElla articles with insights from sexual health charities like Brook, and in September 2019 we released a four part podcast series hosted by sex educator and broadcaster Alix Fox. Our A Letter To editorial series features journalists, sex educators and pioneers writing a letter to their younger self, or someone from their past, about how much they’ve learned since that moment.
We regularly take to the streets of the UK to ask the general public what they think about sex, contraception and the morning after pill, in our ellaOne Question series. We have also launched a glossary of sex related terms – which includes everything from areolas to dildos – that we have dubbed ‘The Sex Index’. All of our content is reviewed by our medical team, who makes sure everything we say is factually correct.
ellaOne is committed to ending the shame, stigma and judgement associated with taking the morning after pill. For too long this lingering stigma has made women and people with uteruses feel bad for making informed decisions about their own bodies.
We need your help to keep the conversation going, so if you like what you see, share our content, tell your friends, or ask us questions using the hashtag #AskElla.
If you have ever taken the morning after pill, why not share your story and join the hundreds of people who are coming forward to reclaim the morning after?
