Emergency contraceptives, often referred to as “the morning-after pill” are about 58-94% effective at preventing pregnancy. The range is so large because when taken at the right time, emergency contraception is very effective. However, some women are unable to access the medication until it’s almost too late.
Ella is more effective than Plan B, especially if you weigh more than 165 lbs. Plan B is more effective the faster you are able to take it (for example, it’s more effective if taken 3 hours after unprotected sex rather than 48+ hours after).
