What is the morning after pill?

The morning after pill, also known as the emergency contraception pill, is a form contraception used after the fact. The Online Clinic is prepared to prescribe the morning after pill to women if they are suitable for taking this sort of medication. We will consider prescribing it for women who have very recently had unprotected sexual intercourse (or sexual intercourse where the contraceptive method has failed) and want to avoid getting pregnant. We are also prepared to prescribe this sort of medication on a precautionary basis so that women have it available in the event of an accident.

What are my options?

There are two pills that The Online Clinic is able to prescribe, if appropriate:

Levonelle is the classic morning after pill. Levonelle can only be taken within 3 days of having had sexual intercourse where there is a risk of pregnancy.

EllaOne is a newer type of emergency contraception pill and can be taken up to 5 days after having had unprotected sexual intercourse where there is a risk of pregnancy.

When should I take the morning after pill?

You should take the morning after pill as soon as possible after intercourse. This is because the sooner you take it; the more likely it is that the medication will be successful. As with conventional forms of contraception, the morning after pill does not have a 100% success rate.

You must seek medical advice if:

  • You are about to take one of the pills and you are close to the pill's time limit. Remember that for Levonelle, the time limit is the 72nd hour after intercourse for EllaOne it is the 120th hour.
  • You vomit within two hours of taking Levonelle, or within three hours of taking EllaOne, as you will need to take another one as a replacement as soon as possible.

Can I take one of the pills instead of normal contraception?

It is highly discouraged to use the morning after pill as a normal method of contraception as the effectiveness of it is far lower than normal methods of contraception and should therefore be considered only as an emergency option.

What are the side effects of the morning after pill?

Levonelle: not many people get side effects with this pill but the most common are: vomiting, headache, lower abdominal pain and nausea. It might also affect your next period's timeframe, though the subsequent period should be on time.

EllaOne: again, side effects are not frequent but the most common are: muscle pain, nausea, headache, abdominal pain and backaches.

Can I take Levonelle or EllaOne?

Please fill out our online consultation to see whether Levonelle or EllaOne is appropriate for you. Answer all the relevant questions and make sure you fully disclose your medical history to help us advise you on the best option for your specific case. The sooner you start your online consultation, the sooner you will have your medication.
