Ella: The morning after pill

Ella is a prescription emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. Ella is a prescription-only oral medication available for same-day pick up at your local pharmacy.

In order to dispatch your prescription to the pharmacy in 3 hours or less, the cost of your order includes priority service. This ensures that you get the care you need, when you need it.

How Does Ella Work?

Take Ella as soon as possible, but within 5 days of unprotected intercourse or contraceptive failure. The active ingredient in Ella is Ulipristal, which prevents pregnancy by delaying or stopping the release of an egg from an ovary. Using daily oral birth control pills as emergency contraception is not a safe or effective form of emergency contraception. Get Ella, "the morning after pill," to safely prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. Ella is available for pick-up only and cannot be delivered to your home like Plan B can.

Ella Indications

  • Take Ella within 5 days of contraceptive failure (broken condom or missing 2 days of birth control)
  • Do not use Ella as a regular birth control method
