Meet the birth control that lasts a year

Do I need a follow up appointment after taking ella?

Last updated on August 31, 2020

No, no tests or procedures are needed after taking ella. You should take a pregnancy test if your period is delayed for more than a week of when you expect it after taking ella. 

Please note, ella does not prevent or cure sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you are at risk of getting an STI and have had unprotected sex, see your ob-gyn or other health care professional.
