Ella (also known as ulipristal acetate) is a progestin that is used as an emergency contraceptive. Ella is used when a woman has unprotected sex and wants to prevent pregnancy before the fertilized egg implants in the uterine wall. Ella is used as close to the time of the unprotected sex as possible in order to be effective.
