This guideline notes that the advice for using this form of emergency contraception whilst breastfeeding has changed. Women should not breastfeed for 5 days after taking Ella-One. They should express and discard milk in that time to maintain production. Alternatives are Levonelle (with no breast-feeding restriction) and the copper coil (which can be used from 4 weeks postpartum).
