Emergency contraception: From accessibility to counseling

COCON Group

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Since emergency contraception (EC) users have a higher risk sexual profile, they may miss an opportunity for medical counseling if getting EC directly from a pharmacy. However, direct access to emergency contraception through pharmacies has been shown to increase EC use. Informational materials destined for EC users could alert women to the importance to check for sexually-transmitted infections considering health issues related to STDs.
