Emergency contraception: knowledge and attitudes of family medicine providers. (1/86)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Emergency contraception (EC) is an underutilized method of preventing unplanned pregnancy. This study assessed family physicians' and nurse providers' knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about EC. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was distributed to faculty, residents, and clinic nurses in a Midwestern department of family medicine. Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences. Statistical significance was tested by chi-square test, Student's t test, and Mann-Whitney U test where appropriate. RESULTS: Seventy-eight providers participated (response rate 81%). Seventy-four percent of physicians have prescribed EC in the past, with an average of 3.2 (range 0-10) times in the last year. The majority of providers reported that they were familiar with indications (96%) and protocols (78%) for prescribing EC, yet knowledge inaccuracies were identified. Overall attitudes regarding EC were positive. CONCLUSIONS: Although the majority of participating providers were willing to prescribe EC and had generally favorable attitudes toward it, rates of providing this therapy were low. There was a discrepancy between providers' perceived and actual knowledge about EC. Interventions targeting misunderstandings might help reduce missed opportunities to provide EC.  (+info)

Mechanisms of action of mifepristone and levonorgestrel when used for emergency contraception. (2/86)

An emergency contraceptive method is used after coitus but before pregnancy occurs. The use of emergency contraception is largely under-utilized worldwide. One of the main barriers to widespread use is concern about the mechanism of action. Recently, treatment with either 10 mg mifepristone or 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel has emerged as the most effective hormonal method for emergency contraception with very low side-effects. However, the knowledge of the mechanism of action of mifepristone and levonorgestrel in humans, when used for contraceptive purposes and especially for emergency contraception, remains incomplete. The objective of this review is to summarize available data on the effects of mifepristone and levonorgestrel on female reproductive functions relevant to the emergency use of the compounds. When summarized, available data from studies in humans indicate that the contraceptive effects of both levonorgestrel and mifepristone, when used in single low doses for emergency contraception, involve either blockade or delay of ovulation, due to either prevention or delay of the LH surge, rather than to inhibition of implantation.  (+info)

Effect of advanced provision of emergency contraception on women's contraceptive behaviour: a randomized controlled trial. (3/86)

BACKGROUND: Emergency contraception (EC) can prevent pregnancy but is under-used. Advanced provision increases use but the effect on contraceptive behaviour varies. METHODS: Women aged 18-45 years, using less effective contraceptives, were randomized to either advanced provision of three courses of EC (intervention) or to obtaining each course from clinic (control). EC use and contraceptive behaviour were monitored for 1 year. RESULTS: In all, 1030 women were recruited in 6 months. The mean+/-SD number of courses of EC used in intervention versus control group was 0.56+/-1.2 versus 0.20+/-0.6 (P<0.001). In the intervention group, 47% women aged <26 years used at least one course of EC compared with 23% of older women (P<0.001). The majority of women used condoms before (intervention 89%, control 91%) and during the study (89% for both groups). Consistency of contraceptive use was higher during the study (65 versus 60% of women in both groups) (P<0.001). There were 17 unplanned pregnancies, eight in the intervention group, six of whom did not use EC in the conception cycle. CONCLUSIONS: Advanced provision increases EC use especially among young women in Hong Kong. Contraceptive choice and consistency of use remains the same even among young women.  (+info)

Late follicular phase administration of mifepristone suppresses circulating leptin and FSH - mechanism(s) of action in emergency contraception? (4/86)

OBJECTIVE: Low dose mifepristone (RU486) is highly effective in emergency post-coital contraception (EC), although the mechanism(s) of action remains unclear. We studied the endocrine actions of 10 mg mifepristone administered orally as a single dose to eight healthy volunteers (aged 20-45 years) during the late follicular phase. METHODS: Serum levels of LH, FSH, oestradiol, progesterone, leptin, mifepristone, cortisol, and gluco-corticoid bioactivity (GBA) were measured before and 1, 2, 4 and 8 h after ingestion of mifepristone on cycle day 10 or 11 (study day 1), and follow-up was continued for 10 days. Ovarian ultrasonography was performed on study days 1 and 7. Similar measurements were carried out during a control cycle. RESULTS: Mifepristone postponed ovulation, as evidenced by a 3.4+/-1.1 day (means+/-s.d.) delay (P < 0.005) in the LH surge and 3.6+/-4.0 day prolongation of the treatment cycle (P = 0.08). During the mifepristone cycle, an LH surge was displayed by five subjects when serum mifepristone levels had declined to 9.5+/-7.1 nmol/l. During the day of mifepristone administration, circulating GBA (P < 0.001) and leptin (P < 0.001) levels declined. On the day after mifepristone administration, mean serum FSH and leptin levels were lower than pretreatment values (3.8+/-1.8 IU/l vs 5.2+/-1.1 IU/l, n = 7, P < 0.05; 28.9+/-6.7 microg/l vs 33.2+/-9.0 microg/l, n = 7, P < 0.05 respectively), and the corresponding difference in the mean serum oestradiol concentration was borderline (452+/-252 pmol/l vs 647+/-406 pmol/l, n = 7, P = 0.056). In contrast to the control cycle, individual leptin levels declined during the follow-up after ingestion of mifepristone (n = 8, P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: These data showed that the commonly employed dose of mifepristone for EC delays ovulation and prolongs the menstrual cycle, when given during the late follicular phase. The mechanism of action of mifepristone may include a reduction of FSH secretion via a decrease in circulating leptin.  (+info)

Clinical presentation and management of alleged sexually assaulted females at Mulago hospital, Kampala, Uganda. (5/86)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the presentation and treatment offered to sexually assaulted females attending emergency gynaecological ward in Mulago Hospital, Kampala, Uganda. SETTING: Mulago hospital gynaecological emergency ward. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective descriptive study. PARTICIPANTS: Fifty eight sexually assaulted females were recruited from 1 st March 2000 to 31 st December 2000. They were interviewed, examined, given appropriate treatment and followed up for three months. OUTCOME VARIABLES: Socio demographic characteristics, genital and bodily injuries, relationship to the assailant, and prevalence of sexually transmitted infections. RESULTS: The mean age was 9.5 with a range of 1-35 years. Seventy two percent of the victims were children below 12 years. Fifty percent of the assault occurred at the assailant's home. The majority (79.3%) of the victims knew the assailant and cases of gang rape were only 6.9%. The injuries sustained were extra genital (19.0%), genital (75.4%). The emotional or psychological disturbance was present in 22.4% of the patients. The sexually transmitted infections found included trichomonas vaginalis (1.7%) and syphilis (3.7%). All cases received counseling and prophylactic treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Those in reproductive age group were offered emergency contraception. None of the victims got post exposure HIV therapy because it was not available in the hospital. CONCLUSION: Sexual assault is common in Uganda and is one of the most dehumanizing human crimes against women. It is associated with adverse medical and social problems. There is urgent need to sensitize the community about reporting early for medical treatment after sexual assault.  (+info)

Health care providers' knowledge of, attitudes toward and provision of emergency contraceptives in Lagos, Nigeria. (6/86)

CONTEXT: Emergency contraception can play an important role in reducing the rate of unintended pregnancies in Nigeria. Although it is included in the national family planning guidelines, there is limited awareness of this method among clients. METHODS: In 2003-2004, a sample of 256 health care providers within Lagos State were surveyed about their knowledge of, attitudes toward and provision of emergency contraceptives, using a 25-item, self-administered questionnaire. Frequencies were calculated for the various measures, and chi-square tests were used to determine significant differences. RESULTS: Nine in 10 providers had heard of emergency contraception, but many lacked specific knowledge about the method. Only half of them knew the correct time frame for effective use of emergency contraceptive pills, and three-fourths knew that the pills prevent pregnancy; more than a third incorrectly believed that they may act as an abortifacient. Fewer than a third of respondents who had heard of the pills knew that they are legal in Nigeria. Of those who had heard about emergency contraception, 58% had provided clients with emergency contraceptive pills, yet only 10% of these providers could correctly identify the drug, dose and timing of the first pill in the regimen. Furthermore, fewer than one in 10 of those who knew of emergency contraception said they always provided information to clients, whereas a fourth said they never did so. CONCLUSIONS: Nigerian health care providers urgently need education about emergency contraception; training programs should target the types of providers who are less knowledgeable about the method.  (+info)

Emergency contraceptive options available for adolescents. (7/86)

QUESTION: A 16-year-old female patient came into a clinic seeking consultation after unprotected coitus. What treatments are available if this patient does not want to continue with a pregnancy? ANSWER: Teen pregnancy is a substantial problem. Several emergency contraceptives exist, including the combined pill, the progesterone-only pill, and copper-bearing intrauterine devices. While many teenagers are unaware of these options, this armamentarium is very effective if used early after coitus and when further sexual activity is avoided for a few days.  (+info)

Contraceptive attitudes and contraceptive failure among women requesting induced abortion in Denmark. (8/86)

BACKGROUND: To elucidate how contraceptive attitudes among Danish-born and immigrant women influence the request of induced abortion. METHODS: A case-control study, the case group comprising 1095 Danish-born women and 233 immigrant women requesting abortion, in comparison with a control group of 1295 pregnant women intending to give birth. The analysis used hospital-based questionnaire interviews. RESULTS: Lack of contraceptive knowledge and experience of contraceptive problems were associated with the choice of abortion. This association was most pronounced among immigrant women, where women lacking knowledge had a 6-fold increased odds ratio (OR) and women having experienced problems a 5-fold increased OR for requesting abortion. Further, in this group of women, a partner's negative attitude towards contraception was associated with an 8-fold increased OR for requesting abortion. Contraceptive failure was prevalent; 21% of the women who did not plan to become pregnant but intended to give birth had experienced contraceptive failure. The same applied, respectively, for 45% of the Danish-born women and 36% of immigrant women, who requested abortion. Women who had experienced contraceptive failure were significantly more likely to request abortion. CONCLUSIONS: Immigrant women seem to have more difficulties in using contraception than Danish-born women. To address this problem, there is a need for culturally sensitive information campaigns targeting this heterogonous group of women.  (+info)

Women can use emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy after known or suspected failure of birth control or after unprotected intercourse. Many patients do not ask for emergency contraception because they do not know of its availability. Emergency contraception has been an off-label use of oral contraceptive pills since the 1960s. Dedicated products, the Yuzpe regimen (Preven) and levonorgestrel (Plan B), were marketed in the United States after 1998 but had been available in Europe for years before that. A third approved method of emergency contraception is the insertion of an intrauterine device. Emergency contraception is about 75 to 85 percent effective. It is most effective when initiated within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse. The mechanism of action may vary, depending on the day of the menstrual cycle on which treatment is started. Despite the large number of women who have received emergency contraception, there have been no reports of major adverse outcomes. If a woman becomes
A campaign to increase knowledge about emergency contraception has been identified as one of the relatively few interventions with the potential to reduce the incidence of unwanted pregnancy. This study relates variations in use of emergency contraception to population characteristics and identifies indicators which may be used to measure the impact of a campaign. The study is a secondary analysis of routinely collected data and health service indicators. Prescription data is used to compare districts and examine the population based factors which are associated with use of emergency contraception and termination of pregnancy. A stepwise multiple regression includes termination of pregnancy rates as the dependent variable. Uptake of prescriptions for emergency contraception and termination of pregnancy rates within FHSAs show a positive correlation (0.56). High use of both services is present in inner London FHSAs. A low termination rate combined with high emergency contraceptive use is typical of West
In addition, only 15% of women aged 18-45 who have been offered or have accessed emergency contraception say they have been offered the copper IUD. FSRH is concerned that these findings demonstrate a lack of awareness amongst women about the most effective form of emergency contraception. The findings also demonstrate a need for more visible guidance for healthcare professionals in this area to ensure that women are offered the copper IUD as the most effective form of emergency contraception.. Today FSRH launches its new Emergency Contraception guideline, which aims to bridge this gap in awareness and knowledge. The guideline gives clear evidence-based information to UK healthcare professionals, nurses, doctors, pharmacists and all those involved in advising and caring for women who wish access emergency contraception.. In line with NICE guidance, recommendations mark a new emphasis on healthcare professionals advising women that the copper IUD, is the most effective method of emergency ...
From a medical perspective, emergency contraception is safe and effective, although not as effective in preventing pregnancy as routinely used contraceptives. Despite its usefulness in the event of contraceptive lapse or failure, emergency contraception continues to provoke controversy. Central issues leading to debate include the uncertainty of its mechanism of action and, more recently, concerns about the impact of over-the-counter availability, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) denied in its May 2004 decision.. The way emergency contraception prevents pregnancy is not precisely defined, but it likely works by means of several mechanisms, including inhibition of ovulation, prevention of fertilization, and interference with implantation.1-3 To some persons, any post-fertilization effect is tantamount to abortion. Others, including the FDA, the National Institutes of Health, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, define abortion only as disruption of an ...

Emergency contraceptives are methods of preventing pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse (usually up to 72 hours after). They do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. Emergency contraception is not abortion, although some people who object to abortion also object to emergency contraception.
The Copper T IUD when inserted into the intrauterine cavity within 5 days of unprotected intercourse is greater than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. It is also a permanent form of contraception that is now approved for 12 continuous years of use.. None of the forms of Emergency Contraception mentioned above protect against being exposed or getting a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) including HIV as only condoms are able to do.. Top of page. What is Plan B Emergency Contraceptive?. Plan B Emergency Contraceptive is a progestin-only pill composed of levonorgestrel in a dose of 1.5 milligrams. It was first approved by the FDA in 1999 where it was taken as .75 mg 12 hours apart. It was later found to be just as effective with no difference in side effects or efficiency when taken as a single pill which improves patient compliance. Progestin is one of two hormones found in birth control pills that prevents ovulation (release of eggs from ovary) and causes cervical mucus thickening (prevent ...

ABSTRACT: Emergency contraception refers to contraceptive methods used to prevent pregnancy in the first few days after unprotected intercourse, sexual assault, or contraceptive failure. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first dedicated product for emergency contraception in 1998, numerous barriers to emergency contraception remain. The purpose of this Committee Opinion is to examine barriers to the use of emergency contraception, emphasize the importance of increasing access, and review new methods of emergency contraception and limitations in efficacy in special po... ...

This is a pilot randomized controlled trial to assess the effects of advanced supply of emergency contraception versus routine care in a teen postpartum population. The goals are to assess feasibility of recruiting and retaining postpartum teens; to obtain estimates of the prevalence of (use of Plan B, primary contraceptive continuation, unprotected intercourse exposure, and pregnancy rates), in postpartum teens given advanced supply of Plan B; to assess whether or not (lack of use of Plan B, contraceptive method non-continuation, and unprotected intercourse exposure), are surrogate markers for risk of unintended pregnancy ...
We get a lot of questions from teens who are wondering if they can prevent pregnancy after intercourse, whether the concern is due to a broken condom or from not using any method of contraception in the first place. Regardless of how it happened, there is something that can reduce the risk of pregnancy if used within 120 hours (or with an IUD, eight days) of your risk. That something is Emergency Contraception.
In fact, in a systematic review published in 2007, twenty-three studies published between 1998 and 2006, and analyzed by James Trussells team at Princeton University, measured the effect of increased EC access on EC use, unintended pregnancy, and abortion. Not a single study among the 23 found a reduction in unintended pregnancies or abortions following increased access to emergency contraception (see also fact sheet here ...

Dear Reader,. Theres minimal chance of your girlfriend becoming pregnant from what seems like an understandable curiosity about what condom-less penetration feels like. From what youve written, it sounds like you were pretty careful. However, these "precautionary" measures dont guarantee 100 percent contraceptive effectiveness, as you later realized, even if you were inside her ever so briefly.. If you and your girlfriend are concerned about the possibility of conception, then emergency contraception (EC) is an option. EC needs to be taken within 72 hours (though it may still have some effectiveness up to 120 hours) of condomless sex, sex that occurred when no birth control method was used, or if used, failed. However, the earlier you take it, the more effective it will be at preventing pregnancy. Several vareities of EC, including Plan B One-Step and its generic versions, are available on-the-shelf in the family planning aisles of many pharmacies and drugstores. This means that anyone, ...

The American Academy of Pediatrics, trying to skirt a federal ban on non-prescription sale of emergency contraceptives to girls under 17, says physicians should write scripts in advance. This is good public health. - Michael Yudell, Philadelphia Inquirer
For the emergency physician, sexual assault represents the most common presenting complaint associated with the potential for an unintended pregnancy. Annually, approximately 40,000 people in the United States visit EDs after sexual assault. Pregnancy is estimated to occur in approximately 5% of sexual assaults. Thus, pregnancy prevention is an important part of the care for these patients. For the emergency physician, EC represents the most viable treatment option. However, while highly effective when used properly, it is associated with a number of issues that make i...
More than a dozen people protested outside Harris Teeter in Ballston this morning (Monday), urging the grocery store to make it easier to access a form of emergency contraception.. Protestors gathered near the store at 600 N. Glebe Road just after 10 a.m. holding signs and chanting, urging the grocery store to put Plan B One Step on its shelves. Currently, customers must pick up a card on the shelf for Plan B and take it to either a pharmacist or store manager to redeem it.. Plan B is a time-sensitive medication to prevent unintended pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, but the sooner it can be taken, the more effective it is.. The protest was organized by Reproaction, a direct action group formed two years ago to help increase access to abortion and reproductive justice: the right to parent, the right not to parent and the right to raise children in safe and healthy communities.. "For over four years, the FDA has authorized emergency contraception to be sold on the shelf to ...
that depends. plan b one-step and generic levonorgestrel work best if you take them within 3 days after sex, but they may work up to 5 days after sex.
Talking to your kids about sex can be daunting. But discussing issues like abstinence, STDs, and birth control can help lower teens risk of unintended pregnancy or contracting an STD.
Depends on your method of choice; ParaGard is super effective and the pill methods are a bit less effective. Note: When we talk about effectiveness we mean typical use numbers or what happens when couples used this method of birth control prettywell; it accounts for human errors and occasional contraceptive failure. BUT, teenagers are often not as careful as older people in using these methods, so real typical use rates for teens may be a little worse than what you see here. Keep that in mind as youre looking at the options and remember that for birth control to be effective, you have to use it consistently and correctly every single time.. ...

Abstract: this paper focuses both the risk and the occurrence of non-planned pregnancy, abortions, as well as the awareness about and the use of emergency contraception among hiv/aids-infected women. a quantitative observational approach was used after a domiciliary survey in santo andre, s?o paulo state, brazil, where it was found that, after receiving the information about the infection, 62.8% adopted the use of male condom, 77.2% using it exclusively, 13% associated with hormone injections, and 9.8% alternated with either interrupted intercourse, fertility schedule or vaginal shower. mechanical flaws by the use of the preservative occurred to 38%. added to flaws associated to the alternation with behavioral methods, they caused together 40% of non-planned pregnancy, which occurred to 24% of the interviewed women, 22% resulting in self-provoked abortions. emergency contraception was known by 51.4%, although only 2.7% had used it. the conclusion is that mechanical or behavioral flaws related ...
Went with my friend to buy it on two separate occasions and noticed a huge difference in prices and attitudes:s The first time we bought it at a small pharmacy in town, it was just on the shelf and easily accessible but the pharmacist was quite rude and judgemental when she ran my friend though the cash. The second time was at a pharmacy in the mall, it was in the condom aisle and easy to get, the pharmacist there was friendly and nice with my friend as he ran her though. There was a good 6$ difference between these two locations, but it was still in the 30$ range. When I went to the pharmacy near my house I decided to take a look and it was close to 40$. Its so strange :/. ...

Emergency contraception helps prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. Emergency contraception isnt meant to be used in place of routine birth control - but its an option if youve had unprotected sex, your method of birth control failed or you missed a birth control pill.. To be effective, emergency contraception must be used as soon as possible after unprotected sex. In the U.S., two types of emergency contraception are available: emergency contraceptive pills and the copper intrauterine device (IUD).. Emergency contraception pills are also known as the morning-after pill. Emergency contraception pills - such as Next Choice One Dose, Plan B One-Step and Ella - can be used up to five days after unprotected sex. However, the pills are more effective the sooner you take them.. Another option is a copper IUD (ParaGard). To prevent pregnancy, the IUD must be inserted within five days after unprotected sex.. ...
Emergency Contraceptive Pills (ECPs). There are three types of ECPs: combined ECPs containing both estrogen and progestin, progestin-only ECPs, and ECPs containing an antiprogestin (either mifepristone or ulipristal acetate). Even though mifepristone (RU486) is available and FDA approved in the United States to induce abortion, it is not approved for use as an emergency contraceptive. Normally medications that are FDA approved can be used for other medical indications. In the United States, due to a special approval process, mifepristone can only be used to induce abortion. RU486 is commonly used in China as an emergency contraceptive and in random studies has been shown to be more effective than Plan B in preventing pregnancy using as little as 10 mgs orally if taken within 96 hours of unprotected intercourse. Only the combined estrogen and progesterone birth control pills (Yuzpe method) and progesterone-only pill called Plan B (levonorgestrel) are available for use in the U.S. as ECPs. The ...
Plan B, Plan B One-Step, morning after pill, emergency contraception. Plantiffs in the case, such as the Center for Reproductive Rights, have charged that the government unnecessarily restricts access to the emergency birth control. U.S. District Judge Edward Korman questioned the government's motivation for granting non-prescription status to just Plan B One-Step and urged the government to reconsider. However, the judge has not yet made a ruling on the proposal. Marketing exclusivity means that no other manufacturer will be permitted to market its products over-the-counter for three years Korman wrote. This confers a near-monopoly that will only result in making a one-pill emergency contraceptive more expensive and thus less accessible to many poor women. Korman also voiced frustration with the government's delay in approving over-the-counter sales of a drug that would be among the safest drugs available to children and adults.
OTC emergency contraceptive (EC) use is both an ethically and therapeutically charged issue. Ethically, controversy arises over product mechanism of action (MOA) and, therapeutically, around unintended use as routine contraception. In order to help facilitate understanding, pharmacists can review the trials evaluating drug MOA, along with the risks, contraindications, counseling points, and public health implications of emergency contraception.. History and Proposed MOA. Hormonal post-coital contraception was first introduced in the late 1970s by Yuzpe and Lance, who suggested use of 0.1 mg ethinyl estradiol/0.5 mg levonorgestrel within 72 hours of intercourse followed by repeat dosing 12 hours later.1 This was standard post-coital contraception until introduction of the levonorgestrel only method.1 Currently, 1.5 mg levonorgestrel once, or two 0.75 mg levonorgestrel doses separated by 12 hours, have emerged as gold standards- with the former preferred over the latter.. Current research is ...
EC is a type of modern contraception which is indicated after unprotected sexual intercourse, following sexual abuse, misuse of regular contraception or non use of contraception [1]. EC plays a vital role in preventing unintended pregnancy, which in turn helps to reduce unintended child birth and unsafe abortion, which are major problems of maternal health [1]. EC is found to be effective if used as soon as possible after unprotected sexual intercourse, especially within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse [2].. There are two types of ECs namely, emergency contraceptive pills and intrauterine devices (IUDs). The pills include combined oral contraceptive pills (COCs), and a progestin only pills (POPs); IUDs can be effective if it is inserted within 5 days of unprotected sexual intercourse [3]. EC is said to be safe with minor side effects like nausea and vomiting in case of pills and infection for IUDs if not used properly [3]. Effectiveness of EC said to be 75% in case of COCs and 85% in ...

In summary, decreased endometrial thickness and decreased L-selectin ligands expression may be the earliest features of the antiprogestational effect of CDB-2914 in the luteal phase, heralding other endometrial changes. In our studies, endometrial maturation appeared to be more vulnerable to a small, single dose given in the follicular phase than with a single dose given either in early or mid-luteal phase. Whether this is a direct endometrial effect or secondary to an ovarian effect is not known. Taken together, these endometrial effects in the absence of ovarian and menstrual cycle effects suggest mechanisms by which CDB-2914 might be effective as an emergency contraceptive (28 ...

The findings go on to cite recommendations for EC information provision, and the drugs safety and efficacy in preventing unintended pregnancy. This legislation correctly locates EC, given the scientific evidence, as a means of preventing, but not terminating, a pregnancy. Previous Governor Bill Owens vetoed a similar bill in spring of 2004. When Ritter ran for the Governors seat, he included a platform of reducing unintended pregnancies through better family planning, better access to health care including birth control and emergency contraception, providing responsible sex education, and promoting adoption. Ritter also stated, "Improving education, health care and our economy - which will be the top priorities for my administration - will do more to improve the lives of children and reduce the number of abortions in our country than a divisive focus on punishing the women who find themselves turning to it as a solution." ...

Democratic senators have introduced a new bill to raise awareness about emergency contraception and make it available to rape survivors at federally funded hospitals.. The Emergency Contraception Access and Education Act of 2014 was introduced by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), with Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) signing on as co-sponsors. The bill would ensure that any hospital receiving Medicare or Medicaid funds provides accurate information and timely access to emergency contraception for survivors of sexual assault, regardless of whether or not they can pay for it. It would also require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to disseminate information on emergency contraception to pharmacists and health care providers.. ...

It has been suggested (mostly by internet rumours) that it could be dangerous to take the ECP more than one or twice in your life. The following is an excerpt from the World Health Organizations (WHO) site which throws light on this subject:. "Emergency contraceptive pills are for emergency use only and are not appropriate for regular use as an ongoing contraceptive method because of the higher possibility of failure compared with non-emergency contraceptives. In addition, frequent use of emergency contraception can result in side-effects such as menstrual irregularities, although their repeated use poses no known health risks.". In other words, you shouldnt take the ECP very often because: 1) youd rather take the regular contraceptive pills and you will be better protected from unwanted pregnancy; 2) you may get some abnormal periods; BUT NOT because its dangerous!. In fact, the Royal College of Obstetricians, says that the LNG pill can be used even more than once in the same cycle. ...
Yesterday the New York Times published a report on the alleged abortion-inducing properties of "emergency contraceptives" such as Plan B and Ella. These drugs carry FDA-mandated labels stating that in addition to delaying ovulation, they may also prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg in a womans uterus. That second assertion may not be supported by the latest scientific evidence, according to the NYTs Pam Belluck: Studies have not established that emergency contraceptive pills prevent fertilized eggs from implanting in the womb, leading scientists say. Rather, the pills delay ovulation, the release of eggs from ovaries that occurs before eggs are fertilized, and some pills also thicken cervical mucus so sperm have trouble swimming. It turns out that the politically charged debate over morning-after pills and abortion, a divisive issue in this election year, is probably rooted in outdated or incorrect scientific guesses about how the pills work. Because they block creation of fertilized ...
Up to 72 hours after rape, women can receive medication to prevent their pregnancies. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two drugs for emergency contraception: levonorgestrel (Plan B®) and levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol (Preven®). These drugs are similar to birth control pills, but they contain higher dosages of hormones. The first dose of emergency contraception pills can be taken up to 72 after the rape occurs. The second dose is taken 12 hours after the first. These drugs are most effective when taken as soon as possible after intercourse. These drugs are not considered abortive because they work by preventing or delaying the release of an egg (ovulation), thereby preventing the pregnancy from occurring. These drugs may also slow the movement of the egg or sperm in the fallopian tubes, making it harder for an embryo to implant in the uterus. Emergency contraception is available over-the-counter for women ages 18 and older. Victims of rape who are younger than 18 ...
NEW YORK -- Politics, not science, led the FDA to delay approval of the emergency contraceptive Plan B and when the agency finally did okay the morning-after pill, politics dictated the access it allo
If you are single, the surest way to avoid pregnancy or a sexually transmitted infection is abstinence, and it always works. If you are married, the modern methods of Natural Family Planning (NFP) are the safest, healthiest, least toxic, and least expensive means for family planning. Victims of rape or sexual abuse need and deserve the best medical care and human support possible. The additional stress and health risks of emergency contraception add further harm. (Pregnancy due to rape is estimated at 5%).27 For the vast majority of these women, emergency contraceptives impose significant health risks with no benefit. If conception has already occurred, then a very early abortion is the only means for emergency contraception to be effective. Abortion carries with it many serious adverse consequences such as increased rates of breast cancer, depression, anxiety, suicidal behaviors, and substance use disorders.28 A far safer approach is to carry the child to term. Adoption is always an ...
Some conservative politicians have been stating publicly that emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs), such as Plan B, cause abortions. They may believe that life begins at conception (fertilization of the egg by the sperm) and argue that ECPs disrupt a fertilized eggs ability to implant in the uterus, which they consider equivalent to abortion. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and experts from the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health consider a pregnancy to be established when a fertilized egg settles itself on the wall of the uterus - implantation. A woman is most likely to become pregnant when she ovulates, which is usually about two weeks before her next period. Sperm can live for up to three days. So, if an egg is fertilized, there are still possibly six to 12 days before the implantation may take place.. When ECPs were first developed and information about them was submitted to the FDA for market approval, the drug manufacturers included ...
Estrogen and progesterone pills are used as oral contraceptive pills, emergency contraceptive pills or as hormone replacement therapy in several hormonal disorders. Thyroxin or levothyroxin pills are used to treat hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. Levothyroxin is also used to treat cretinism in infants..

On Friday, April 5, Senior Judge Edward R. Korman of the Eastern District of New York ruled that Plan B, the morning-after pill, must be made available over the counter to young women aged 16 years or younger. The ruling overturned Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius previous 2011 ruling requiring that young women be at least 17 years old to obtain birth control; this ruling in turn struck down the Food and Drug Administrations own decision to allow Plan B to be sold without any age limits or prescription requirements. Is your head spinning yet?. This tug-of-war over the issue of who exactly gets to obtain emergency contraceptives most directly affects the girls who need access to emergency contraception the most: underaged girls who have few resources in the case that they have unprotected sex and fear pregnancy. It also affects low-income families, as many of them cannot afford to pay for an abortion. Not all families even have access to health insurance, and Plan B can ...

It basically organizes its discussion around this list but, it lumps ovulation and fertilization under the different heading "Oocyte maturation and fertilization."(2) The most important sections are on follicular development--which is the confirmed mode of action--and endometrial receptivity and implantation, and corpus luteum--which are potential modes of action that might get called "abortion". For each of these possible modes of action, you need to consider the effects of various dosages of the two drugs being considered and the timing of those doses. There are a lot of possible cases here, and Id really like to see a big chart with all the possible combinations. As it is, it seems a lot of cases arent covered. I cant find the data for the effects of levonorgestrel on the corpus luteum ...

An in vitro fertilization example may help to clarify this point. Assume that a woman from Dr. Millers hometown of Hickory has successful in vitro fertilization in a medical center in Charlotte, North Carolina, 64 miles distant. An egg and sperm unite in a Petri dish, leading to a unique new genetic complement. Can the woman announce to her neighbors that she is pregnant? Should her obstetrician in Hickory begin providing prenatal care? Her fertilized ovum resides in a different city. Clearly, not until the fertilized ovum successfully implants in her uterus (or elsewhere) is she pregnant. Similarly, with in vivo fertilization in the fallopian tubes, a woman is not pregnant until the ovum implants ...
Here is the problem - it depends on your point of reference. HHS has apparently mandated that contraception be available without co-pay, and that the insurance companies not raise their rates to cover those who so chose it. That includes religiously affiliated institutions like Georgetown, whose leadership object to paying for contraception on religious grounds. The HHS compromise is apparently that they can offer two policies, one with and one without contraception coverage, but cannot charge anything more for it over the policy that does not provide for contraception coverage. Which is, in essence, an accounting gimmick to get around the religious objections to the contraception mandate, but ignores that these institutions will have to pay for the contraception any way, since the cost of the contraception will, by necessity, based on the way that the rule was written, be spread out across the policies of both those who elect contraception and those who do not. Or, more relevant here, the ...

​The terms post-partum and post-natal refer to the period of time immediately after giving birth, and for the next six weeks. Even if sex is the last thing on your mind at this time, contraception should be discussed - until your baby is 21 days old you cannot become pregnant but after that contraception is needed and fortunately there are now many choices available. The types of contraceptives can be divided into short-acting, long-acting and permanent. If you are planning on having another baby in the next year or so then you should consider a short-acting contraceptive.
Theres no question that 40 is a milestone birthday. Its a midlife point-a time to reflect, evaluate, consider, think. Is this the right career for you? Are you happy in your marriage or relationship? How are your children turning out? Is it time to have children?. But as you muse upon the course your life has taken up to now and where you want it to go over the next decade, dont forget to consider one very important component: Contraception. Whether youre finished having children or considering having your first one (dont laugh: in 2005, the birth rates for women 35 and older rose to levels not seen in almost 40 years), the only thing standing between you and the unexpected is your contraception.. Because while you may be moaning about your first gray hairs and the fact that its suddenly become harder to lose those final (or first) five pounds and youve started paying as much attention to your retirement fund as to your kids college fund, the reality is that some things really havent ...

Part I of this essay can be read here.. In the first part of this essay, I outlined two conflicting opinions of conscientious Catholic thinkers on the question of whether Plan B causes early abortions. This second part summarizes the views of a secular authority on EC, James Trussell, and then sets forth my own conclusion on the issue.. The Arguments of James Trussell. Around the time that the German bishops released their statement on EC, James Trussell and Elizabeth G. Raymond published a paper entitled, "Emergency Contraception: A Last Chance to Prevent Unintended Pregnancy." Trussell is the director of the Office of Population Research at Princeton University and is considered by some to be a world authority on the morning-after pill.. The paper does not present independent research on EC, but, rather, summarizes existing research. Addressing the mode of action of LNG, the paper cites four older studies (from 1974, 1979, 1983 and 1986) showing that LNG, used in combination with estrogen, can ...
Condoms can be difficult to acquire in some parts of the world. In addition, the ones you do find may be of lesser quality than the ones to which you are accustomed. Take responsibility for yourself. The best prevention is abstinence. Remember that STIs can be transmitted through various sexual acts, including sexual activity involving condoms and other preventative measures. You may, however, want to bring condoms with you, even if you are not planning on being sexually active while abroad. Female students may also want to consider bringing a dose of emergency contraception, as this is often not readily available abroad and illegal to dispense in many majority Catholic countries, i.e. Ireland, Spain, Argentina ...

Late news from last March: Plan B, an emergency contraceptive that prevents ovulation, was restricted by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for ideological reasons.

First of all, contraception IS healthcare! We had that debate last year, when contraception became a mandated minimum standard for coverage by health insurance. Its ludicrous and obtuse to continue denying what is already established. You cant begin with a premise that has already been established as false.. Secondly, there doesnt have to be a RASH of employees. Jehovahs Witness do not believe in blood transfusion or transplant. They are a small, but significant minority, with over 12,000 congregations and one million members in the USA. Ife we make a religious exception for contraception, what is to stop people from making religious exceptions to covering vaccinations, blood transfusion organ transplants or pacemakers? Where do we draw the line? And if its just with contraception, why is the Catholic Church being given special religious privilege?. Third, Ms. Fluke was NOT comparing contraception and leukemia treatments. She was just saying that if we allow employers to opt out of standard ...
