1 in 5 Pharmacies Hinders Teens' Access to 'Morning-After' Pill: Study
Date:3/26/2012

nancy increase by 50 percent, according to background information in the study.

Emergency contraception is not an "abortive" drug, Wilkinson said. It does not affect an existing pregnancy or slow the transport of a fertilized egg from the fallopian tubes into the uterus, she said.

The average cost for emergency contraception was $45, ranging from $15 to $70.

Wilkinson added that emergency contraception should not be confused with RU-486 (mifepristone), which is used to terminate early pregnancies and is given by physicians under supervision.

To clear up the confusion, Wilkinson urged more education of pharmacy staff and said pediatricians and other health care workers must make sure that adolescents know their rights.

"Clinicians might help prepare their patients for this by writing a prescription as a backup to make sure they can access it when they need it," she said.
