 5  Prevent pregnancy None. Better than plan b. I weigh 180 pounds and am tall. I was told plan b only works on women under 165. I had no side effects. Plan B have me am ocular migraine and ella didn't even give me cramps. F 34 1 days

 4   Extreme exhaustion, dizziness, nausea. Cramps While I took it 107 hours late (the earlier the better, not sure if I had ovulated or not this month) I felt cramps a few hours later, which I think is a good sign. Made me extremely extremely exhausted though. DO NOT take if you have work/plans this day. Also, none of my local pharmacies carried it so I needed to purchase it from ella-kwikmed.com F 21

 5  Prevent Pregnancy Ella worked with mild side effects. After being sexually active during my peak fertile time, I took ella. I did not use any other method of birth control. I took anti-nausea pills (Meclizine, 50mg) along with ella. Side effects were mild. A bit of nausea the night I took it, followed by some upset stomach and dizziness the following day. My period came and was normal, maybe a bit early. I would recommend ella for anyone uncertain about their birth control method. Upon taking it, I would recommend staying in for the night and having healthy, light meals. It's way better than the abortion pill taken later! F 26 1 days

ELLA  (ULIPRISTAL ACETATE):  Ulipristal is used by women to prevent pregnancy after birth control failure (such as a broken condom) or unprotected sex. This medication is an emergency contraceptive and should not be used as a regular form of birth control. It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. Using this medication will not stop an existing pregnancy or protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia). This medication may not work well in women who are overweight (for example, body mass index greater than 30) or if you are using certain other medications. This effect can result in pregnancy. Talk to your doctor for more details and to see if this medication is right for you (see also Drug Interactions section).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
