Get the facts
Your mind might be doing Olympic-winning mental gymnastics when thinking about taking emergency contraception. That’s why we believe clear and up to date medical science fact is essential.
The sooner you take the emergency pill, the more effective it is
EllaOne can be effective if taken within 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex
Levonorgestrel can be effective if taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex
If you’ve already ovulated, then the emergency contraceptive pills will have no effect. However, even if you think you ovulated more than 5 days ago, we recommend using emergency contraception no matter where you are in your cycle, because it’s difficult to predict the exact time of ovulation.
We offer same day dispatch if your order is placed and approved before 2pm on weekdays. We’ll make sure you get the right pill in the right timescale.
