Update on oral contraceptive pills. (4/103)

Oral contraceptive pills are widely used and are generally safe and effective for many women. The World Health Organization has developed a risk classification system to help physicians advise patients about the safety of oral contraceptive pills. The choice of pill formulation is influenced by clinical considerations. By choosing appropriately from the available pill formulations, family physicians can minimize negative side effects and maximize noncontraceptive benefits for their patients. Additional monitoring and follow-up are necessary in special populations, such as women over 35 years of age, smokers, perimenopausal women and adolescents. Third-generation progestins are additional options for achieving noncontraceptive benefits, but their use has raised new questions about thrombogenesis. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has labeled emergency postcoital contraception for use following unprotected coitus. Oral contraceptive pills are associated with few clinically significant drug interactions, although consideration of interactions remains important.  (+info)

Women's experience and satisfaction with emergency contraception. (5/103)

CONTEXT: If any new contraceptive technology is to become a viable option for decreasing unintended pregnancies, women must be willing to use the method and find it acceptable. However, because emergency contraceptive pills have not been widely used, very little is known about this method's acceptability. METHODS: Telephone interviews were conducted with 235 women who had received emergency contraceptive pills through a demonstration project at 13 Kaiser Permanente medical offices in San Diego to assess women's experience and satisfaction with the pills. RESULTS: More than two-thirds of the women (70%) were using a contraceptive method prior to their need for emergency contraception, and 73% of these users were relying on condoms. When asked about the situation that led to unprotected intercourse, 45% reported that their condom broke or slipped, while 23% said they had had unplanned sex. More than three-quarters of the sample (81%) experienced at least one side effect. The overwhelming majority were satisfied with emergency contraceptive pills (91%) and would recommend them to friends and family members (97%). Just one-quarter of the sample (28%) believed that emergency contraceptive pills should be dispensed over the counter, and an even lower proportion agreed that they should be available from vending machines (6%). CONCLUSIONS: Because women were overwhelmingly accepting of emergency contraceptive pills, found them easy to use and did not intend to substitute them for regular contraceptive use, this new method is an important addition to the contraceptive options available to women, providing a way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse or method failure.  (+info)

Informed consent for emergency contraception: variability in hospital care of rape victims. (6/103)

There is growing concern that rape victims are not provided with emergency contraceptives in many hospital emergency rooms, particularly in Catholic hospitals. In a small pilot study, we examined policies and practices relating to providing information, prescriptions, and pregnancy prophylaxis in emergency rooms. We held structured telephone interviews with emergency department personnel in 58 large urban hospitals, including 28 Catholic hospitals, from across the United States. Our results showed that some Catholic hospitals have policies that prohibit the discussion of emergency contraceptives with rape victims, and in some of these hospitals, a victim would learn about the treatment only by asking. Such policies and practices are contrary to Catholic teaching. More seriously, they undermine a victim's right to information about her treatment options and jeopardize physicians' fiduciary responsibility to act in their patients' best interests. We suggest that institutions must reevaluate their restrictive policies. If they fail to do so, we believe that state legislation requiring hospitals to meet the standard of care for treatment of rape victims is appropriate.  (+info)

Effect of the Yuzpe regimen of emergency contraception on markers of endometrial receptivity. (7/103)

This exploratory study was designed to determine whether treatment with the Yuzpe regimen of emergency contraception altered endometrial integrin expression or other markers of uterine receptivity. Nineteen parous women were followed for two menstrual cycles. In the second cycle, each participant took 100 mg ethinyl oestradiol and 1 mg norgestrel on the day of the urinary luteinizing hormone (LH) surge and repeated the dose 12 h later. In both cycles, endometrial biopsy, phlebotomy and vaginal sonogram were performed 8-10 days after the urinary LH surge. No significant difference was found between untreated and treated cycles in most measures of endometrial histology or in endometrial expression of beta3 integrin subunit, leukaemia inhibitory factor, glycodelin, or progesterone receptors assessed by immunohistochemical techniques. Five statistically significant changes were noted in treated cycles: a reduction in endometrial MUC-1 expression, an increase in endometrial oestrogen receptor, lower luteal phase serum oestrogen concentration, reduced endometrial thickness, and greater proportion of glandular supranuclear vacuoles. The relationship of these findings to the contraceptive action of the Yuzpe regimen is unclear.  (+info)

Emergency postcoital contraception. (8/103)

Emergency postcoital contraception, a method used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse, is a highly effective but underutilized birth control option. Two hormone regimens, ethinyl estradiol (100 microg) with levonorgestrel (0.5 mg) or high-dose levonorgestrel (0.75 mg), given within 72 hours of intercourse and repeated 12 hours later, are available for this purpose. These regimens are packaged as Food and Drug Administration labeled, dedicated products or can be adapted for use from standard oral contraceptive pills. Emergency postcoital contraception should be considered as a primary prevention health service to women of childbearing age.  (+info)

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.
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 ...
To the Editor.-. The American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Adolescence policy statement on emergency contraception1 reports the effectiveness of the Yuzpe regimen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) in terms of a pregnancy reduction of 70% to 80% and of levonorgestrel-only emergency contraception of 85%. These estimates are outdated. Using current methods for estimating effectiveness, the effectiveness rates seem to be in the range of 50% to 66% and 72% to 80%, respectively.2-5 Because there are no randomized trials with a placebo arm, considerable uncertainty remains about the effectiveness of emergency contraception.3,5. The policy statement also proposes that "[e]mergency contraception has tremendous potential to reduce unintended pregnancy rates in teens and adults." This statement remains, as yet, a hypothesis that is unsupported by empirical evidence. Several studies have failed to document a decrease in rates of unintended pregnancy or abortion in populations that are provided ...

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.. ...
Doctors give trusted answers on uses, effects, side-effects, and cautions: Dr. Nwanguma on emergency contraception protect sexually: The two are not related.
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 ...
The Food and Drug Administration on Friday approved an emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken up to five days after unprotected sex. The product, a prescription-only tablet, will be marketed in the U.S. by Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The company said the product will be sold as ella and will be available starting in the fourth quarter.
Typically, says researcher and professor Robert Schweitzer, the conclusion of sex should bring pleasant feelings or positive feelings along with a state of calmness. For the women with postcoital dysphoria, however, feelings were the opposite - anxious, irritable or sad. Some women who said they felt sad or blue after sex said the negative feelings werent related to feeling unloved or the act itself. The feelings seemed to be relatively unknown in origin, but its an area thats gaining research interest, says an article from ScienceDaily.. Some speculate postcoital dysphoria is linked with feelings of guilt or shame associated with a history of sexual trauma or abuse. These feelings can lead to a woman wanting to refrain from sex all together. However, Schweitzers research hasnt found a significant relationship yet between a woman having a history of sexual violence or abuse and her experiences with postcoital dysphoria.. Further research will explore other possible causes for postcoital ...

There's a new form of emergency contraceptive on the market. On Friday, the F.D.A. approved ella, a pill that can be taken as many as five days after unprotected sexual intercourse to prevent pregnancies, NYTimes.com reported.
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 ...
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 ...

Lest you think its all about abortion, just take a look at how the Bush Administration has been quietly fighting womens access to birth control.. Senior Food and Drug Administration officials must testify about the federal agencys failure to decide whether a controversial emergency contraceptive pill may be sold without a prescription, a federal judge in Brooklyn ruled late Friday.. The decision by Magistrate Viktor Pohorelsky came in response to FDA legal efforts to keep secret the agencys discussions and correspondence about the pill, called Plan B.. Barr Pharmaceuticals of upstate Pomona makes Plan B. Barr bought the rights to the drug from Womens Capital Corp., which in 2003 applied for approval to sell it over the counter. Barr pursued the application. Two advocacy groups and nine women from a group called the Morning-After Pill Conspiracy sued the FDA in January 2005, alleging it ignored a statutory deadline for deciding whether Plan B could be sold without prescription. In December, ...
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.. Gonadotropin hormones that regulate the secretions of sex hormones such as estrogen and progesterone are used to treat several disease conditions, infertility and prostrate disorders.. Steroids may be given in the form of pills to treat several allergic, inflammatory or autoimmune conditions. They may be used in the inhaled form in bronchial asthma or as nasal sprays in allergic rhinitis. Steroid injections may also be given in cases of emergency such as acute asthma attack or shock. In addition, anabolic steroids can increase muscle growth and are administered to treat certain muscular and other developmental disorders.. Insulin hormone injections are used to treat individuals ...
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 ...
The emergency contraceptive pill (also known as ECP, Plan B or the morning after pill) prevents pregnancy. It can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex. The ECP can inhibit ovulation and change the uterine lining; however, if a fertilized egg has already implanted, the ECP will not terminate the pregnancy. In Canada, the ECP is available without a prescription at most pharmacies and sexual health centers.. The abortion pill (also known as medical abortion) terminates an established pregnancy, no more than 49 days after the last menstrual period. The abortion pill can only be obtained from a physician. Some people are familiar with RU-486 (Mifepristone), an abortion pill used in the United States; however a different combination of drugs are used for medical abortion in Canada.. ...
The overall aim of this thesis was to study knowledge, attitudes and experience of emergency contraceptive pills among women and providers.. Both quantitative and qualitative methods were used. Focus-group interviews were conducted with teenage-girls (I) and with women who had purchased ECP without prescription (IV). Self-administered waiting-room questionnaires were administered to women presenting for induced abortion in three large hospitals (II, III), and after the deregulation of ECP, a postal questionnaire was sent to pharmacy staff and nurse-midwives in three counties in mid-Sweden (V).. Overall, women showed high basic awareness of ECP although specific knowledge such as the level of effectiveness, time-frames and how the method works was lacking. Approval of the method was high and most women were positive to use the method if they needed. Contradictory views as to whether ECP undermines contraceptive behavior were expressed. As many as 43% of women requesting induced abortion had a ...
Labels inside every box of morning-after pills, drugs widely used to prevent pregnancy after sex, say they may work by blocking fertilized eggs from implanting in a womans uterus. But an examination by The New York Times has found that the federally approved labels and medical websites do not reflect what the science shows. 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.

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. Commenters at the time said so and in March, 2009, a U.S. Federal judge agreed in his ruling. The story is here in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch web site: Protect…
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
(PRESS RELEASE) The Center for Reproductive Rights announced today it will reopen its 2005 lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for imposing unnecessary age restrictions on emergency contraceptives, and seek immediate relief to allow broader access to available drugs.
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 ...
Almost all women can safely use ECPs. The only absolute contraindication to use of emergency contraceptive pills (a.k.a. ECPs, "morning after pills" or "day after pills") is confirmed pregnancy, simply because ECPs will not work if a woman is pregnant. There are no long term or serious side effects from using ECPs. About 50% of women who take combined ECPs experience nausea and 20% vomit. If vomiting occurs within 1 hour after taking a dose, some clinicians recommend repeating that dose. The non-prescription anti-nausea medicine meclizine reduces the risk of nausea by 27% and vomiting by 64% when two 25 mg tablets are taken 1 hour before combined ECPs, but the risk of drowsiness is doubled (to about 30%). The risk of nausea and vomiting with progestin-only ECPs is far lower than the risk with combined ECPs: 23% experience nausea and 6% vomit ...

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, ...

A 25-year-old Para 1321 female from North India presented to emergency room with sudden bout of heavy postcoital bleed associated with suprapubic cramping since the last 4 h. In her obstetric history, she had four-term vaginal deliveries and two complete abortions.

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 ...
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.. ...
People have been buzzing since the latest FDA decision to allow 17 year old teenagers access to Plan B, also known as the morning after pill. Some are thrilled, some are appalled.
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 ...

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.. ...
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 ...

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." ...
An emergency contraceptive pill (morning after pill) to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse - failure or incorrect use of a regular contraceptive, after rape or incest. You can either take both the tablets together or take one tablet and take the other one 12 hours later. Efficacy depends on the time of consumption. If taken early the effectiveness is definitely more. Does not cause an abortion and should not be used as a regular contraceptive method. ...
Trust Women South Wind Womens Center offers emergency contraception at an affordable price with no appointment or prescription necessary.
The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the knowledge of, attitudes toward, and experiences of the emergency contraceptive pill (ECP), sexual behaviour, and pornography consumption among high school students and young people. Data were obtained by questionnaires (studies I, II, and III), and by qualitative in-depth interviews (study IV). A majority of 16-year old high-school students were aware that ECP existed, and knew where to obtain it. Attitudes toward using ECP were generally positive, but more girls than boys were hesitant as to whether ECP should be available without a prescription. Of those having experienced sexual intercourse, more than one fourth stated that they themselves or their partner had ever used ECP (I). Almost half of the 16-year old high-school students surveyed (46%) had had sexual intercourse, a number similar in studies conducted 10 and 20 years earlier. Use of contraceptives at first intercourse had increased (to 76%) and use of alcohol had decreased (to ...
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 ...

Representative Mike Kelly Sends Letter to Secretary of Health and Human Services Demanding Rescission of Controversial Contraceptive Mandate Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (PA-03) sent a letter today to the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, calling on her to rescind a new federal mandate requiring all health insurance plans to cover contraceptives, including those commonly referred to as "emergency contraception." As part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," the mandate would force employers to cover FDA-approved emergency contraception such as the highly controversial drug ulipristal acetate (ella), which shares the relevant chemical properties of the abortion drug mifepristone (RU-486). Ella has also been found to be embryotoxic in animal studies, functioning as a progesterone receptor blocker that can prevent a newly conceived human being, post-fertilization, from implanting in the ...
By Lyndsay Moss Health Correspondent WOMEN in Scotland are to get easier access to the morning-after pill at pharmacies in moves announced by the Scottish Government yesterday. The emergency contraception is set to be supplied for free in most of Scotlands 1,200 community pharmacies under changes to their contracts. Last night, the plan was welcomed by sexual health groups and doctors. However, some campaigners expressed fears it could fuel rising rates of sexually transmitted infections. Shona Robison, the public health minister, announced an expansion of services provided by community pharmacists at a conference in Glasgow. As well as free emergency contraception, changes to the contract will lead to pharmacies providing smoking cessation services and free chlamydia testing and treatment. Some pharmacies already offer such services, but provision across Scotland is patchy. Ms Robison said she hoped by making the services part of the national contract, people across Scotland would get more ...
