Morning after pill


I took the morning after pill last week I’m just wondering how long I have to wait before I can start taking oral contraception (the pill) after having the morning after pill.


Hello @Meg1

It depends on what type of emergency contraception you took. If it was Ella One (ulipristal acetate) then you need to wait 5 days before. you start your pill. If it was levonorgestrel then you can start your pill immediately. In both cases you should do a pregnancy test 3 weeks later, just to make sure that you are not pregnant.

Many thanks
