Who is ellaOne® Direct for?

ellaOne® Direct online delivery is there for anyone who, for whatever reason, might feel uncomfortable buying emergency contraception over the counter, or would simply prefer to order it online. This service is only available to people aged over 16. If you are under 16 you can still get ellaOne®, but you will have to visit your GP or pharmacist first.

If you’ve had unprotected sex and want to take the morning after pill, it is more effective the sooner you take it. The purchase should be convenient and fuss-free. No one should have to worry about factors like embarrassment on top of a potential unplanned pregnancy.

If it’s going to be difficult for you to get to the pharmacy, you have work the next morning, or other commitments that will get in the way, why not order it online? Buying ellaOne® online only takes a few minutes, and it can be delivered to your door and on your terms.

How can I buy ellaOne® online?

When buying ellaOne® online, using the ellaOne® Direct online delivery service, you will be asked to complete an online version of the consultation that you would normally have with a pharmacist if you were buying emergency contraception in their store.

Every online sale is overseen by a pharmacist. This means that if any of your answers to the online questionnaire indicate that ellaOne® might not be suitable for you, your order will be paused until you are able to have a conversation with the pharmacist. If you are under 16 you will not be eligible to buy ellaOne® online, and you should go to the pharmacy or make an appointment with your GP.

When can I order ellaOne® online?

You can order ellaOne® Direct at any time of day or night.

What delivery options are available?

ellaOne® Direct has a number of delivery options available for people looking to access the most effective morning after pill*, and can be ordered 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including weekends and Bank holidays. ellaOne® Direct offers next day (24 hour) delivery nationwide.

What about my privacy?

Your privacy is very important to us. ellaOne® Directs packaging is a discreet cardboard box, with no indication of the brand or its contents. The box is small enough that it can fit through an average-sized letterbox and there will be no way for others to tell what the package contains. ellaOne® will also not be named on your bank statement.

The ellaOne® Direct delivery service requires an email address to complete the order, but your data will not be shared or used for marketing purposes.
