Morning after pill twice in one cycle


#1

I took the morning after pill on Wednesday (26th June) Ella one. Me and my partner had unprotected sex with no ejaculation Saturday night for around 2/3 minutes. Do I need to take another emergency pill?

Hello @Meg

Many thanks for your question. There is still a possibility of pregnancy from the type of sex that you describe so it would be a good idea to take emergency contraception again. You could consider the emergency contraceptive pill or the emergency coil.

There is more information about these methods here https://sh24.org.uk/contraception/ec

It is fine to take the morning after pill twice in one cycle but it is important to take the same type. So if you have already taken Ella One then you should take Ella One again.

It might also be a good idea to think about long term contraception and you can find out more about the different methods here https://sh24.org.uk/contraception

If you have specific questions about any of the methods then do come back to me.

Many thanks

Paula
