No: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not alter the effects of ellaOne or ella; and does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, cause acne, lower testosterone, etc... ...Read more
Hi there- I need to take 'Ellaone' the morning after pill, but I also want to take norethisterone on Friday as I go on holiday. Can I do this?
YES.: Taking progesterone only to induce a period a few days after using the morning after pill shouldn't be harmful or reduce the effectiveness of either. Progesterone only pills can be used as a "morning after pill" but, since I don't know the strength of your norethisterone I can't instruct you on its use. Sounds like you may need to rethink the effectiveness of the contraception you normally use. ...Read more

I took an EC pill (Ellaone) on 6/26/15, period started 7/15/15,came 2 days early. Period has lasted 2 weeks(unusually long), is this normal? Worry?
Pregnancy test: Only a pregnancy test can tell you if you are pregnant. It can take 2 weeks from conception (in general 4 weeks from last period) for a pregnant test to turn positive, if you have regular monthly periods. If you believe you may be pregnant, take a test in this time frame and that should give you your answer. The morning after decreases the rate of pregnancy, but does not fully eliminate it. ...Read more
I took the levonorgestel pill 15 hours after having sex. Can I take also the ellaone pill to increase the probabilities not to be pregnant?
An effective choice: Ella is 95% effective at preventing pregnancy when taken within 120 hours (5 days) of intercourse. Ella works by preventing ovulation, even during the time in your cycle when youre most fertile. Thats important because sperm can live for five days in a womans reproductive tract. Most other emergency contraceptives are only approved for three days. It should only be used in an emergency. ...Read more
What to do if I had the ellaone ulipristal acetate tablet yesterday after having unprotected sex 4 days ago?
Wait awhile...: Ulipristal Acetate (Ella) works up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. You may experience some spotting or a delayed period. This is normal.

Best wishes! ...Read more
Took EllaOne EC after 8 days ago, 4 days after unprotected sex. I'm still having symptoms from EllaOne. Is this normal? My period is due Tues/Wed.
It happens sometimes: Emergency contraception pills such as Plan B or ellaOne can alter the menstrual symptoms for the cycle in which it was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because ellaOne works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

Did you have unprotected sex since your last period? If yes, you may wish to repeat the pregnancy test about a month after the last episode of sex, unless you get a period before then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I had sex 05/27/13 took ellaone 05/30/13 got my period 06/15 about two weeks early, lasted 5 days. Tested negative 06/13/13 can I be pregnant by him?
Probably not: If you had a regular period 6/15 two weeks after having sex with a man, and if your pregnancy test was negative more than 2 weeks after, it's unlikely you conceived on 5/27. If you had an ultrasound at 10-12 weeks, that calculated due date will also tell you the probable date of conception. ...Read more

3 times neg pregnancy test but no pms symptoms. Took ellaone after unprotected sex. Could it be the reason why no pms symptoms?
When was last mense?: EllaOne works to prevent or delay ovulation and has a progesterone like action. Some women will get early spotting or menses after taking the pill and others will have a delay in their menses. A pregnancy test is reliable about a week after menses are expected, sometimes earlier. You do not state when you did the hcg tests and when you expected to have pms symptoms. ...Read more

Had sex on the end of my period but he did not cum. He may have pre cum though. I took the ellaone pill 3days after and I'm worried that I am pregnant?
Maybe/not: Pregnancy has been documented from exposure on any day of a woman's cycle including during menses. Precum has enough sperm to do the job & the pills work better when taken closer to the time of exposure. What you describe is a lower risk scenario than some, but some risk of pregnancy remains. ...Read more
I used Ellaone after unprotected sex. Period arrived on time but was very light. No other pregnancy symptoms except for mild cramping. Could I be pregnan?
I Was on depo injection that ran out 3 weeks ago, I didn't have periods while on this. Then I had unprotected sex last week took ellaone about 32 hours afterwards and I'm now spotting does this mean I'm not pregnant?
Maybe. Maybe not.: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. Emergency contraceptive pills can alter the vaginal bleeding during the current and the next cycle. ...Read more
