Hi ladies, so I'm really
Panicking I had unprotected sex on my most fertile day literally my ovulation calculation said that was my most fertile
Day of the cycle. So the next morning I went to get the "ella one" morning after pill. I took the pill less than 24houts after the incident. But, I've been reading that if ovulation has already occurred then the pill won't work. I'm confused! Does anyone know? help xx

I'm afraid that's true :( in my case anyway! I took the MAP after a day before I was due to ovulate (I checked the Glow app that I use) and it never worked! I was given Levonorgestrel though. Ella-One might be more effective. Hoping it works for you xx

Yes, if you have already ovulated then then MAP is not likely to be reliable. You will need a coil inserted up to 5 days after the unprotected sex

@jademp12 if you get the coil inserted within 5 days after sex, I believe that is 99% effective?

I took the morning after pill literally less that 10 hours after unprotected sex and I was pregnant! Now I have a 1 year old... not ideal at the time. Couldn't be happier now but deffo get on some stronger contraception if your worries about getting pregnant x

Thanks everyone I got the Coil! I'm due on next week and I'm hoping that it has worked.

I had no idea about the coil. Too late for me now.

I also recently took the MAP, after reading up and finding that it stops ovulation, I just knew it wouldn't work.

Did everything go OK for you?
