Had to take after a condom issue (whoopsie) while waiting to get an appointment for a coil fitting. Was concerned about all the side effects I’d read online but was really relieved that I didn’t experience any and was simple to take. Does the job (I’m not pregnant) but very, very expensive from local pharmacist. I wasn’t offered a range of the options available and in future will be ordering from the lowdown if needed again

I thought I didn’t have much negative side effect after this and I’ve taken it about twice or thrice in the last ten years when another contraceptive method has failed. Every time I have taken it, about a month after I have an incredible amount of hair fall which really worried me.

I took this within 24hours of sex, during which the condom had failed. It didn't work and I ended up having an abortion.

I took this morning after pill last month and had no side effects but took it again this month and it delayed my period by 11 days and prolonged it by an extra few days. I was also heavier during this time.

It worked and you're not exactly offered a choice with what you're given but this seriously effected my mood both times I took it.

I become pregnant even after taking Ellaone literally the morning after. I was so shocked to find out this will not work if you have already ovulated!!!! Please be careful!! I did not know this and was told by the nurse when I had to get an abortion. Very traumatic experience and did not think this would happen to me.

Made me feel ill for the rest of the day, fine again the next morning though. Had quite a bit of spotting and period a little later than usual.

Do not recommend taking this if you’re allergic to milk or lactose intolerant. I was incredibly nauseous for over 3 days.

As a woman who is currently refusing regular contraception after various awful experiences, I was caught out one night with my husband. I opted for the morning after pill so I wouldn’t have to wait and see if I might have become pregnant. It was the least disruptive medication I’ve taken lately. I wasn’t previously having periods being 10 months post partum they hadn’t yet returned but did within 2 weeks of taking the MAP.

Took Ellaone in 3rd out of the 5 day window as we were unsure did condom leak since it tore. Had sex protected but failed contraception on 9th day of my cycle took Ella 3 days later. After ingesting felt cramps hour later. Over the weeks had been moody / tingling breasts / back ache / headaches dizzy nauseous and very bad acne. Took two tests both negative so awaiting aunty flo to make appearance as expected . I presume the tablet did its job but I wouldn’t rush to take it again instead I would go on the pill as well as use second method of contraception.
