ella®: The New Emergency Contraceptive
ella®, now available in the U.S., is a revolutionary new prescription morning after pill that reduces your chance of becoming pregnant if your birth control fails or you have unprotected sex. In 2010 the FDA approved ella® as an emergency contraceptive pill (ECP) that is effective for up to 5 days after intercourse.
How ella® Works
The pill ella® works by inhibiting or delaying ovulation, essentially delaying the release of the egg and prohibiting it from joining with the sperm. Sperm can live in the reproductive tract of a woman for 5 days and ella® delays ovulation throughout this period. The morning after pill ella® is not effective in women who are already pregnant and should not be used by those who knowingly are pregnant. ella® can be taken at any time during the monthly menstrual cycle, including just before ovulation the time when you are most fertile and likely to get pregnant.

There is no long-term impact on a woman's fertility if she would like to become pregnant in the future after taking the morning after pill ella®. Emergency contraception is not intended for continual, routine use and is only for use in women who have experienced, or suspect they may have experienced, contraceptive failure.


The Morning After Pill Delivered Privately to Your Door

Time is of the essence when you are in need of emergency contraception, and so is privacy. ella® is sent to you overnight in secure and discreet packaging. Unlike the morning after pill Plan B One-Step®, which is only effective for up to 72 hours, you have up to 5 days to act with ella®.

At KwikMed your personal information is kept confidential and private and is never sold to any third party or shared with any insurance company or other medical services provider. KwikMed is fully HIPAA-compliant and can ship ella® overnight to your home, office, hotel or nearby FedEx Office location.

With ella®, unlike with Plan B One-Step®, you can maintain your privacy by not having to walk into a pharmacy to get your morning after pill.
