Does Ella Contraceptive Work?
Ella, generically known as ulipristal acetate, was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2010. Ella is not a barrier method of contraception like a diaphragm, cervical cap, or condom. Instead, Ella delays the ovaries from producing eggs which could be fertilized by sperm already inside of a woman’s body. Ella is sometimes compared to other drugs such as RU-486 and Plan B but it works differently from these other drugs. It has proven safe for most women to use as an emergency contraceptive as well as being effective. You should always consult a physician such as those available here at KwikMed before buying Ella.

How Well Does Ella Work?
The question as to how well does Ella work is much simpler to answer. More information is located on the ella contraceptive Wikipedia page as well. Clinical trials have shown that Ella reduces the chances of pregnancy by two-thirds if it is taken within five days of having unprotected sex or experiencing the failure of a birth control method, such as a missed birth control pill or a condom breaking. Does Ella contraceptive work as an effective form of regular birth control? No, it is an emergency contraceptive method that should only be used as such as mentioned on the ella contraceptive wiki.
Ella Effective 120 Hours
The other main difference between Plan B and Ella is that the particular formulation of ulipristal acetate keeps Ella emergency contraceptive effectiveness for 120 hours, or five days, after unprotected sex or a birth control method’s failure, whereas Plan B will not work after 72 hours. Does Ella contraceptive work if a fertilized egg has already been implanted is a question that is still unanswered, so do not take Ella if your last period was more than four weeks ago, or if you have any reason to believe that you might already be pregnant.
