Some medications, such as liver enzyme-inducing medications, St Johns Wart, barbiturates and some HIV medicines, can also impact the effectiveness of ellaOne and levonorgestrel. Please tell your healthcare provider about any medications you are taking so they can help you make an informed decision.
The morning after pill levonorgestrel can sometimes delay your period by up to five days and ellaOne may delay your period by up to seven days. If your period is later than seven days, or if you have any concerns about pregnancy, it is recommended that you speak to a healthcare provider like a doctor or pharmacist.
We understand that you may be anxious to know if the morning after pill has worked, but unfortunately, the only way to know is to wait for your period. If you think you might be pregnant, we recommend that you take a pregnancy test 21 days after unprotected sex.
