Types of Emergency Contraception

Learn more about the Plan B, Ella, and all your pregnancy options.

THE MORNING AFTER PILL

The morning-after pill (commonly known as called Plan B One-Step®) is a form of emergency contraception. Emergency contraception is any type of birth control used after unprotected intercourse or a known or suspected contraceptive failure (i.e. a broken condom) to attempt to prevent pregnancy.

If you are already pregnant from an earlier sexual encounter, taking the morning-after pill is of no value and can cause unpleasant side effects.

ELLA

The emergency contraceptive known as ella® is a type of birth control to be used within five days after unprotected intercourse or suspected contraceptive failure (e.g. a broken condom) to attempt to prevent pregnancy. It is available by prescription only, and your doctor should rule out pregnancy before prescribing ella®.

You can only become pregnant on certain days of the month — around the time that you ovulate. Taking ella® during a time when you cannot become pregnant needlessly exposes you to a new drug that has not been fully tested.

ELLA SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TERMINATE AN EXISTING PREGNANCY.
