Pack this medication into a black trash bag and seal it tightly before throwing into the rubbish chute or bin.
When can I start my regular hormonal contraception after taking this medication?
You can start/restart hormonal contraception e.g. birth control pills 5 days after taking Ella®. You must also use a barrier method (for example; condoms, diaphragms and spermicides) until your next menstrual period, or not have sexual intercourse.
Using a hormonal birth control method and taking Ella® at the same time can reduce the effectiveness of both medications.
