Taking the contraceptive pill after ellaOne

Taking the contraceptive pill after ellaOne®

 Always use a reliable barrier contraceptive, like condoms, until your next period
Starting the contraceptive pill Continuing to take the contraceptive pill
If you wish to start a regular method of contraception after using ellaOne®, you can do so but you should also use condoms until your next period.  If you are already taking a regular contraceptive pill or patch, ellaOne® could make it temporarily less effective. Keep taking hormonal contraception and continue to use it as usual after taking ellaOne®, but be sure to use condoms every time you have sex until your next period.
