How does the morning after pill work?

The morning after pill works in two ways; firstly by making your body think it has already ovulated. This means your body does not release an egg. It also helps thicken the lining of the womb, making it more difficult for sperm to pass through.

Is the morning after pill guaranteed to work?

No. In the vast majority of cases it will prevent pregnancy, however around 10 in every 1000 women still fall pregnant after taking Levonelle, or 5 in every 1000 after taking EllaOne. The sooner you take the pill, the more likely it is to work.

How To Take The Morning After Pill?

Take one tablet as soon as possible, with a glass of water.

When can I take the morning after pill?

You can take Levonelle upto 72 hours after unprotected sex. EllaOne, can be taken upto 120 hours after having had unprotected sex.

Will the morning after pill work if I vomit?

If you vomit within 2 hours of taking the pill, it is recommended you speak to your GP, as you will likely need another dose, depending on the time that has passed since sexual intercourse.

Is the morning after pill free?

Online, there is a fee to be provided with the morning after pill. You can obtain the morning after pill free, from most sexual health clinics and contraception clinics or directly from a pharmacy in Scotland.
