Product Information

Ulipristal 30mg Film-coated Tablets

 

Ulipristal 30mg is an emergency contraceptive.

Ulipristal 30mg is a contraceptive intended to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed. For example:

  • If you had sex without protection
  • If your or your partner’s condom tore, slipped or came off, or if you forgot to use one
  • If you did not take your contraceptive pill as recommended

You should take the tablet as soon as possible after sex, and within a maximum of 5 days (120 hours). This is because the sperm can survive up to 5 days in your body after intercourse.

This medicine is suitable for any woman childbearing age, including adolescents.

You can take this tablet at any time in the menstrual cycle.

 

Ulipristal 30mg does not work if you are already pregnant.

If your menstrual period is late, there is a possibility that you may be pregnant. When your period is late or when you have symptoms of pregnancy (heavy breasts, morning sickness) you should consult a doctor or other healthcare professional before taking the tablet.

If you have unprotected sex after taking the tablet, it will not stop you from becoming pregnant.

Unprotected sex at any time during your cycle can lead to pregnancy.

 

Ulipristal 30mg film-coated tablet is not to be used for regular contraception

 If you do not have a regular method of contraception, talk to your doctor or healthcare professional to choose one that is suitable for you.

 

How Ulipristal 30mg film-coated tablets work

Ulipristal 30mg film-coated tablets contain the substance ulipristal acetate which acts by modifying the activity of the natural hormone progesterone which is necessary for ovulation to occur. As a result, this medicine works by postponing ovulation. Emergency contraception is not effective in every case. Of 100 women who take this medicine approximately 2 will become pregnant.

This medicine is a contraceptive used to prevent a pregnancy from starting. If you are already pregnant, it will not interrupt an existing pregnancy.

 

Emergency contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted infections

Only condoms can protect you from sexually transmitted infections. This medicine will not protect you against HIV infection or any other sexually transmitted diseases (e.g., chlamydia, genital herpes, genital warts, gonorrhoea, hepatitis B and syphilis). Ask a healthcare professional for advice if you are worried about this.

There is more information about contraception at the end of the patient information leaflet.
