FSRH | Quick starting contraception after using ellaOne

The FSRH has released a statement regarding quick starting contraception after using ellaOne. Basically ellaOne has an impact on progesterone receptors and there is concern that it may reduce the effectiveness of progestogenic contraceptives.

For this reason, the new advice is that hormonal contraception should not be started for at least 5 days after using ellaOne. This includes the COC, POP, implant and injectables.

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
