A Morning after pill is an emergency contraceptive that was released to the public stop an unplanned pregnancy from occurring, especially after having an unprotected sex (forced or consensual). Even so, this does not make it an ideal candidate for long term contraceptive alternatives. For the pill to be effective, it has to be taken immediately after intercourse. However, many do not take the pill immediately; rather, they take the pill the next morning after having engaged in sexual intercourse. This is why the pill has been nicknamed the “morning after” pill. However, in the medical world, it is most commonly referred to as the emergency contraceptive pill. This pill is also widely used by rape victims, and couples whose regular contraceptives means have failed – i.e. condom tear.
There are two brands of morning after pills that can be purchased in the UK; they are Levonelle and EllaOne (ulipristal acetate). Levonelle, a traditional post-coital pill, can protect against pregnancy for up to 3 days of unprotected sex. It has been available to the public since 1999. It has been proven to be 85% effective, but the effectiveness can be higher if taken immediately after sexual intercourse. EllaOne, an entirely new brand was launched in Britain in 2010. It is popularly known for its higher effectiveness rate of 98%. It also protects against pregnancy for up to 5 days. Research shows that EllaOne is the most effective when used by women who are at their most fertile stage – just before the egg is released.
When the morning after pill was first introduced, it was recommended that the two pills be taken separately with 12 hours between each dosing. Nowadays, this is no longer the standard dosing as only a single table is required for the same level of protection. Ulipristal acetate and Levonorgestrel, the active ingredients (female hormones) found in EllaOne and Levonelle, restricts pregnancy from happening by altering the womb lining. The hormones found in these pills make it almost impossible for any eggs to attach. Additionally, this stops the ovaries from creating and releasing new eggs. Deciding between which of the two to use totally depends on how the synthetic hormones affect your body.
ellaOne is a morning-after pill, which should be taken as soon as possible after a risky event to protect against pregnancy.
