Should be effective. Ella (ulipristal acetate) contains ulipristal, a drug which blocks the effects of hormones needed for pregnancy. It is more effective than Plan B/progesterone only emergency contraception. When taken within 24 hours, as you report, it is about 95% effective at preventing pregnancy. I could not find information suggesting it is measureably less effective in the obese patient. Consider reliable contraception methods/IUD. Read more...

Dates not right. You say you had the abortion on July 27 2014 - that date has not even occurred yet. If you mean JUNE 27, and then the rest of the scenario is the same, the answer is yes, you could be pregnant - because you had unprotected sex. You think he didn't ejaculate inside you, but there is no way to know that as lots of sperm are released even just during sex. You really need to find better contraception. Read more...

Agree w' Dr Davis. Ask yourself why you are risking pregnancy and the need for another abortion so soon after having had one. You may want to speak with a therapist to address your feelings about abortion, guilt and self punishment in addition to talking with ObGyn about birth control and safe sex. . Read more...

Low, depends. How do you know there was no spillage? Condom got stuck halfway in - doesn't sound good... Ella is a great emergency contraception method. Depending on where you are in your cycle, that would determine risk of pregnancy. If you are before ovulation, then good chances that very low risk of pregnancy. If you are at or after ovulation, then greater chance of pregnancy. Read more...
