Always use a reliable barrier contraceptive, like condoms, until your next period.

If you wish to start a regular method of contraception after using ellaOne®, you can do so but you should also use condoms until your next period.  ellaOne® may make regular hormonal contraceptives, like  pills and patches, temporarily less effective. If you are currently taking hormonal contraception, continue to use it as usual after taking ellaOne®, but be sure to use condoms every time you have sex until your next period.
