EllaOne is a morning after pill, made by HRA Pharma. It contains a substance called ulipristal acetate. It works by interacting with progesterone receptors in the body, thus helping to reduce the likelihood of pregnancy.
- High rate of effectiveness
- Taken after unprotected sex
- Can be taken up to 5 days afterwards
Before pregnancy can begin, ovulation must take place; the ovary must produce an egg. After sex has taken place, sperm is released into the womb, and travels towards the egg in an attempt to fertilise it. Upon successful contact, the egg is penetrated by the sperm, and then makes its way to the uterus. Once there, it attaches itself to the wall of the uterus, and begins to mature into an embryo.
The hormone progesterone is a key participant in this process. It regulates the release of eggs from the ovaries, and controls the consistency of the uterine wall and vaginal mucus. The EllaOne emergency pill, by adjusting the activity of progesterone in the body, is thought to inhibit the generation of an egg, make the uterine wall less conducive to implantation, and increase the thickness of vaginal fluid so that sperm cannot move around as easily.
EllaOne can be useful in lessening the chances of pregnancy beginning when a primary contraceptive method has failed. This might be a situation where are a condom has split, or a pill has not been taken. However, EllaOne should not be relied upon as a substitute for a primary method.
The treatment is supplied with very specific instructions, which should be followed carefully. It is designed to be taken as soon as unprotected sex has occurred, and should not be taken any more than 120 hours following this.
We know that, despite our best intentions, accidents can sometimes happen with contraception, and that a back up might be necessary. At Treated.com, we can help you get the treatment you need without delay.
