My Morning After is an online community for women in charge. We’re about breaking taboos, shaping our own conversations and supporting women who want to take charge of the morning after the night before.

Emergency contraception is a conversation steeped in stigma. Most of us know what it is and where to get it, but it seems no one wants to talk about it.

Taking emergency contraception is treated as an admission of behaving irresponsibly when, in reality, the opposite is true. 'The morning after the night before' is a lingering taboo, but it shouldn't be. The morning after is a choice, not a confession. It doesn't just signal the night before: it welcomes the promise of the day ahead.

It’s time to empower women to embrace this conversation. We are breaking the taboo about emergency contraception and encouraging millions of women to come together to normalise this 'issue'. No morning after comes without a story: we want to cultivate a sense of community by educating, empowering and encouraging women to embrace their unique experiences.

What is ellaOne?

ellaOne® is a morning after pill that can prevent a pregnancy after unprotected sex, or if your contraceptive method has failed.

  • ellaOne® is the most effective morning after pill in the UK.

  • ellaOne® is effective when it matters most because it can prevent pregnancy even when you are about to ovulate. This is when you are most at risk of getting pregnant.

  • Each ellaOne® tablet of ellaOne® contains 30 mg ulipristal acetate.

  • ellaOne® is simple and easy to take  – it is a single tablet which can be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex.
