Yes! This nickname is given to EllaOne® because it can be effective for up to 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. Despite the nickname, it is important to remember that the longer you wait, the less effective emergency contraception will be. EllaOne® is most effective when taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex.
