Ella (ulipristal acetate): Ella (ulipristal acetate) is the newest emergency contraceptive in the US and is a progesterone antagonist which is as effective on day 5 as on day 1.Just like with the other emergency contraceptives, it does disrupt your menstrual cycle and will effect your bleeding/your period.Remember, now is the time to consider other more reliable contraceptive options and 95% effective is not 100% so a pregnancy test is in order
