Yes Katy; But also even if your taking a birth control they say you should continue taking your regular pills and your likely to bleed some after taking the Ella pill.

But normally you do not take more than one as soon as possible after unprotected sex or a broken condom. (((( Here is some information on this pill from our web site at drugs.com (((( A rapid return of fertility is likely following treatment with Ella for emergency contraception; therefore, routine contraception should be continued or initiated as soon as possible following use of Ella to ensure ongoing prevention of pregnancy. While there are no data about use of Ella with regular hormonal contraceptives, due to its high affinity binding to the progesterone receptor, use of Ella may reduce the contraceptive action of regular hormonal contraceptive methods. Therefore, after use of Ella, a reliable barrier method of contraception should be used with subsequent acts of intercourse that occur in that same menstrual cycle.
Effect on Menstrual Cycle
After Ella intake, menses sometimes occur earlier or later than expected by a few days. In clinical trials, cycle length was increased by a mean of 2.5 days but returned to normal in the subsequent cycle. Seven percent of subjects reported menses occurring more than 7 days earlier than expected, and 19% reported a delay of more than 7 days. If there is a delay in the onset of expected menses beyond 1 week, rule out pregnancy.
Nine percent of women studied reported intermenstrual bleeding after use of Ella)))).
