Access to Emergency Contraception

Every woman deserves a second chance at preventing unintended pregnancy.

If taken within 120 hours of unprotected intercourse, emergency contraception can reduce the risk of pregnancy significantly. This gives women a relatively short time frame in which to locate a pharmacy that carries it. Any delay and the chance of pregnancy increases: Emergency contraception is most effective when used within the first 24 hours following unprotected intercourse. In light of the inherent challenges to obtaining emergency contraception within the narrow window of opportunity and the proven merits of this contraceptive, it is critical that the barriers women confront when attempting to obtain this valuable and safe method are minimized.
