The recommended dose of ulipristal is one 30 mg tablet taken as soon as possible within 5 days after unprotected sexual intercourse or contraceptive failure.
Because this medication is often associated with nausea, your doctor may also want you to take medication to prevent nausea at the same time you take ulipristal. If you vomit within three hours of taking ulipristal, contact your doctor immediately, as you will need to take a second tablet. This medication can be used at any time during the menstrual cycle. It can be taken with or without food. Taking it with food may help reduce nausea.
Most women have their expected menstrual period within 7 days of their normal time after using this medication. If you don't have your menstrual period within 7 days of when it is expected, you should have a pregnancy test done.
