Ella How to Take

Ulipristal belongs to the class of medications called selective Progesterone receptor modulators. It works by disrupting the way the hormone progesterone works in the body.

It is used as an emergency contraceptive, when it is taken within 120 hours (5 days) of having unprotected sexual intercourse, or it is believed that a contraceptive has failed.

Ella (Ulipristal-emergency contraceptive) is believed to prevent pregnancy by preventing or delaying ovulation, depending on the stage of the woman’s menstrual cycle.  It may also prevent implantation of the egg by altering the endometrium (inner lining of the uterus). It is important to realize that once implantation has occurred and pregnancy is established, ulipristal cannot cause an abortion or harm the fetus. No serious complications have been reported with Ella (Ulipristal-emergency contraceptive).

Ella (Ulipristal-emergency contraceptive) is intended for use only by women whose regular birth control methods have failed or who may have had intercourse without birth control. It is not a substitute for correct use of regular birth control.

Ella (Ulipristal-emergency contraceptive) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms.

Ella Dosage

The recommended dose of ulipristal is one 30 mg tablet taken as soon as possible within 5 days after unprotected sexual intercourse or contraceptive failure.

Because Ella (Ulipristal-emergency contraceptive) is often associated with nausea, your doctor may also want you to take medication to prevent nausea at the same time you take ulipristal. If you vomit within three hours of taking ulipristal, contact your doctor immediately, as you will need to take a second tablet. Ella (Ulipristal-emergency contraceptive) can be used at any time during the menstrual cycle. It can be taken with or without food. Taking it with food may help reduce nausea.
