For Emergency Contraception "I took morning after pill 12 hours after unprotected sex. I felt so tired and sleepy and nauseous, my stomach hurts too. My period is due 21 of March 2017. My body had these weird chilling sensation so I won't take the morning after pill again. I rate like this because I don't know if it will work or not. I will update later as the days progress and hope I get my period"

For Emergency Contraception "Hi, I am also here to share my experience of using Ella One as I was also stressed and scared. I stupidly had unprotected sex with my boyfriend twice in a day however, at the time I didn't think anything about it as he has pulled out but after a couple of days I started having second thoughts and thinking what if I got pregnant and I wasn't due on my period until over a week. I decided to go and get Ella One on the fourth day after having unprotected sex. After taking it, I found this forum speaking about everyones experiences and decided to keep calm, relax and wait for my period. Week later my period came one day late! I had no side effects or anything, this pill is fab! Remain calm and Ella One will do its job ladies!"

For Emergency Contraception "I want to give my experience to you girls who were in the same situation as me. I had sex with my boyfriend, but we believed that the condom had split so he took me the next day and I got ellaOne. I suffer from anxiety so I was so so worried about if it had worked or not, if I took it right etc. It then came to the day my period was due (11 days after I took the pill) and I had no sign of it. As days went on I still had no period and I was constantly reading on the internet about reviews and pregnancy symptoms, scaring myself! After a week I took a text, negative. And then after 2 I took another and still negative. Finally, after 23 days my period came. I wouldn't worry girls, it will come!!"

For Emergency Contraception "I had unprotected sex and the guy wasn't able to pull out in time. I had just gotten off the pill the month before and I was very fertile/ovulating at this time. I took Ella within the 24 hour window and experienced nausea and headaches in the first 2 hours, then on-off within the next 5 days. I was quite paranoid because I also caught a cold (I rarely get sick) within 2 days, and for some, a weaker immune system may be experienced when the egg first gets embedded. I was experienced some diarrhea but looking back this may be due more to built-up anxiety. My period arrived, just 3 days late. Sharing this experience for those of you who might be worrying. Ella works, just remain calm, and next time, use a condom!"

For Emergency Contraception "Hi ladies! I am here to update on my experience with EllaOne Pill. I had protected sex on 18 Nov 2015. Nothing spilled, nothing broke but naturally, I was still paranoid. So I decided to take Ella four days after just to be safe. My last period was on 6 Nov 2015 and my period came 7 Dec 2015, quite on time! My next period came on 5 Jan 2016 so my period has resumed back to normal. My pregnancy tests have come back negative :) However, I have suffered one side effect of Ella One which is nausea. Before and after my period, I would have extreme nausea. And it may last for days or be short. I have combatted that by resting or eating food to ensure that I'm not on empty stomach if I do vomit (I have not) I hope this helps! Don't be afraid :)"

For Emergency Contraception "I had protected sex but the condom split, but it split early on but he hadn't finished. But I've just had a baby and you're more fertile the first few months and me being paranoid I took Ella one. My periods aren't into a routine because I've had a baby so I don't know when I should even come on. I took the pill two weeks ago now and the past few days I'm crippled in pain with belly cramps and pain in my back. All sorts of things are going through my mind, like ectopic pregnancies and I'm worried so much. Because I was only dating the guy, were no longer dating and if I got pregnant again I'd be so upset. Basically idk what's going on and the only thing I can think of is this pain is from taking the Ella one"

For Emergency Contraception "I just wanted to share my experience in case any of you are experiencing a delayed period after taking EllaOne. I had unprotected sex on the 8th of November, and I was on the pill but I really hadn't taken it properly that month, I got EllaOne and took it about two hours after the unprotected sex. I was due my period the following Monday but it never came. I had extremely light spotting and cramps, I freaked myself out thinking this was implantation bleeding and took multiple tests which were all negative. My period for that month didn't come, even though the doctor I went to about a separate issue said this wasn't possible. My period finally came today, 3 weeks and 4 days late! try not to worry, I drove myself crazy about it for no reason!"

For Emergency Contraception "Hello strangers. Im here to share my experience of taking emergency contraception, Ellaone. My period cycle has been very irregular last 3 monthes , assumed stresses. Therefore it was very hard to know when exactly my ovulation was. On November 19th, I had unprotected sex with my lover unexpectedly. He had condom initially but it dissappeared.He didnt notice that, so he literally came inside of my vagina. I was panic because of my irregular period cycle, I was not sure about everything. After 17hours of unprotected sexual relationship, I had Ellaone tablet. Regardless how much I worried, my period started today! It was actually starting early then I thought. So dont worry too much! It really works! Release your worries!"

For Emergency Contraception "Hello, I decided to share my experience because I know how it feels to be so scared and stressed. I had unprotected sex twice in a day on 6th of November. Next day I found out that my ovulation was on the 5th of November. I was about to die. I was searching through internet and I found out about the morning after pill. I wasn't sure if it was available for me because I'm only 18. 3 days after I went to get the morning after pill to boots and I felt so much better. Today I'm so happy because I got my period on time! I'm still shocked because I thought I'm pregnant. Ellaone works and I recommend it because it's just amazing!!"

It said on the leaflet your next period may be a few DAYS late and if any longer than 7 to do a pregnancy test) i did not get my period so i did tests.. all negative.. 3 MONTHS later.. finally got a period and the pain was just horrific. I will never take a pill like this again. Horrible horrible thing!"

For Emergency Contraception "I took Ella one on the 28th of September 4 days after intercourse with my partner as my implanon had been expired for 3 days which I was not aware of until after, so in panic, took the Ella one tablet. I did not notice no side effects except from a brown discharge after taking and slight cramps on and off for the next 3 weeks and a little sickness. I also had tender breasts. I was convinced I was pregnant as a week had passed from my period due date of the 8th of October, by this time symptoms had stopped and I started getting cramps again, I finally came on my period on October 22nd just over 2 weeks late!!! I would recommend Ella to anyone in my position as it worked for me."

For Emergency Contraception "I was reading the reviews the other day and I was very nervous on whether it would work for me! I had unprotected sex back in mid September (a drunken foolish decision) and nipped to the chemist the following morning to get the MAP. I was in the middle of my ovulation window. I took it within the 1st 12 hr window so was assured by the chemist I had the best chance of it working and thought little more of it. I track my period using an app on my phone so when I was due I got notification. 4 days later and still nothing. My head started to go crazy so I took a test and it said negative which made me relax a little but when I still didn't get my period I was stressing. This morning it finally arrived 18 days late. I've never been so happy."

For Emergency Contraception "I was reading these messages this morning and it put my mind to rest a little, so I thought I'd share my experience. I took Ella three days after having unprotected sex. I missed the other pill and I didn't know doctors did Ella. I was in two minds but I took it. I didn't have any symptoms to be honest after from having little cramps, however my period was due 9 days after taking the medication. I didn't come on and I am never late so everything went through my head. After reading the messages and trying to relax I have come on, I was 5 days late! So try to relax, apart from being late taking the pill was fine and I would recommended it! Hope this helps you."

For Emergency Contraception "I used Ella one after twelve hours of 'unprotected sex' I was drunk when everything happend and was positive I didn't have sex ,but just no too sure and my mind led me into paranoia. So I decided to not take the chance and take the emergency contraception. The pharmacists aren't judgmental at all and are completely understanding im sure you have to be 17 to purchase it so me being 18 was no problem. I took the pill on the 11th and my period was due on the 20th. I took it straight away and the first two days I had no symptoms then on day 4-6 I experienced hot Flushes, pelvic pain, cramps and bloating. Above all it worked and I got my period today the 18th two days early!!! I would completely recommend it even though it's pricey. Be safe"

For Emergency Contraception "This pill works! I decided to share my experience with you because when I had unprotected sex I was searching like crazy to find out a solution. Firstly, I had unprotectes sex august 20th, and the next day I swear, I was extremely anxious and nervous, I was about to die.. I took Ella 30 hours after, and after some days I decided that what I could do, is wait... so I stoped worrying and became comfortable, and I was waiting for my period.. finally it came a week late. So, because I know the struggle, DO NOT PANIC, this pill is very very effective because you dont get pregrant immidietly.. but remember to always have PROTECTED sex...in case you dont ..there's ella xx"

For Emergency Contraception "This pill works! I had unprotected sex July 4 and 16 hours later took the Ella pill. Believe me I was terrified as I'm about to go away to college I am NOT prepared to have a child, today I got my period after it being two weeks late, but this pill works. Don't stress it won't help & it won't make anything come faster, it'll work."

For Emergency Contraception "Hi! So I took ellaone last month and I took it within 10 hours of having unprotected sex. I was convinced everything would be ok until my period was 10 days late! Of course I freaked out and was convinced I was pregnant as my period had only ever been up to 3 days late before. Took one pregnancy test, came back negative, took another pregnancy test and it was faulty- one line was vertical and one was horizontal (both meant to be vertical if pregnant) so I booked in to see doctor. I had all the symptoms of pregnancy but unfortunately for us women, most of the pregnancy symptoms are the exact same as period symptoms. Anyway to cut a long story short- my period came today! Ella one DOES work. It's just a high dose of hormonas."

For Emergency Contraception "I'm writing this because like you I was worried out of my mind after unprotected sex. I took Ella 2 hours after and I was a little nauseous for the next day, I also experienced cramping for a day. After I took it I felt fine and had no bleeding. About 2 weeks after I took it I got my period (yay!) but it was one week late. So don't stress too much because it WILL come!"
