I understand that morning after pills are not 100% effective.

I am aware that EllaOne or any other morning-after-pill should not be taken during the same menstrual cycle (period) without consulting a doctor or contraception specialist

I am aware that many sexually transmitted diseases have no signs or symptoms in the majority of people affected and can cause serious problems later on, even affecting fertility.
