An interesting new morning after pill has been approved by the FDA to use in the United States. The pill is interesting because of the effectiveness and the 5-day time period you have to take the drug. Individuals now have longer than 24-hours of using the morning after the pill.
The new drug now gives individuals up to 5 days to stop an unwanted pregnancy after having unprotected sex. The new drug is called Ella, which has been used in Europe for some time under the name of EllaOne.
Ella is only available by prescription, and is supposed to be used as a one-time only method. Individuals cannot just get the pill and keep taken it after each sexual encounter of unprotected sex. That is not the reason for the pill being made available on the market. The drug is not to be used as an alternative form of contraceptive measures.
Women, who suspect they are pregnant, or is pregnant or are breastfeeding, should not use the pill. The pill is not an abortion pill or a pill used to terminate a pregnancy. The pill is used to keep a woman from ovulating or to delay the ovulation process. There still seems to be a lot of controversy with those, who feel as the drug is used as an abortion method because of the extended amount of time it can be used.
The FDA stress the pill has to be taken with five days after having unprotected sex for it to work. It is used when other forms of contraception may have failed. Ella is effective for use in keeping a woman from becoming pregnant and enduring an unwanted pregnancy. It will not prevent any type of sexually transmitted disease, or HIV transmission. Condoms are still the first choice in the prevention of sexually transmitted disease or abstinence.
Individuals should be prepared for the side effects they may experience after taking the drug Ella. It is best to talk it over with your health care provider. Individuals should be prepared to pay a lot for the prescription drug. It definitely will not come cheap. However, Ella seems to work well and has been very effective in those, who have used it in Europe.
Individuals, who suspect they may be pregnant, should seek out the medical attention of an physician before using the new extended method of the morning after pill Ella.
