Thanks for the explanation! A cool feature making things even more secure if I encrypt short information like sex in a database which would be easy to guess if the result is always the same given the same key.

Yes, Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES) algorithm generates a random number for encryption. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Encryption_Scheme
