The Worl…

    BMJ Sex Reprod Health. 2020 Jun 17 [Online ahead of print]Glasier A, Baraitser P, … Trial steering committee
  • CONCLUSIONS: While availability of EC from UK pharmacies has undoubtedly improved access, the necessity to have a consultation, however helpful, with a pharmacist introduces delays and around one in five of our mystery shoppers left without getting EC. Consultations in private are not always possible and little advice is given about ongoing contraception. It is time to make EC available without a pharmacy consultation.

  • CONCLUSIONS: When evaluating the ability of an experimental condom to prevent semen exposure, the rate of clinical condom failure reported by participants risking pregnancy in an efficacy substudy was significantly higher than the rate reported by participants not risking pregnancy in a functionality study.

    Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2018 05; 218(5):508.e1-508.e9.Bellows BK, Tak CR, … Schwarz EB
  • CONCLUSIONS: Over 1 year, the copper intrauterine device is currently the most cost-effective emergency contraception option. Policy makers and health care insurance companies should consider the potential for long-term savings when women seeking emergency contraception can promptly obtain whatever contraceptive best meets their personal preferences and needs; this will require removing barriers and promoting access to intrauterine devices at emergency contraception visits.
  • Pharmacy access to Ulipristal acetate in major cities throughout the United States. [Journal Article]
    Contraception. 2018 03; 97(3):264-269.Shigesato M, Elia J, … Salcedo J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite evidence for increased efficacy of UPA over levonorgestrel (LNG) ECPs, the availability of UPA in a sample of US major cities is extremely limited. Given that ECPs should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex, the long wait times when ordering UPA present an access barrier. Efforts to improve the availability of UPA are important to optimize the potential of ECPs to decrease unintended pregnancy following unprotected sex.
