How does ella work to prevent pregnancy?

A Answers (1)

  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    ella (ulipristal), an emergency birth control pill, contains progestin, a synthetic hormone that prevents pregnancy by suppressing or delaying the release of an egg from the ovary. The drug may also affect the lining of the uterus (womb), which may stop a pregnancy from developing.
