You may still get pregnant if there is sexual intercourse after taking the pill. Ensure that you use a condom or any other type of birth control method if you have sexual intercourse after taking the emergency contraceptive pill.
When can I start my regular hormonal contraception after taking Ella®?
You can start 5 days after taking Ella®. You must also use a barrier method ( for example; condoms, diaphragms and spermicides) until your next menstrual period, or not have sexual intercourse.
Using a hormonal birth control method and taking Ella® at the same time can reduce the effectiveness of both medications.
