Morning-after pill stash not effective

17th March 2010

A review of international data has found that giving women a supply of morning-after pills to keep "just in case" has had no impact on pregnancy rates.

But the UK-based Cochrane Group also found that the advance provision of emergency contraception did not increase the chance of a woman having unprotected sex or catching a sexually transmitted infection. Researchers say that like condoms, the policy of a stash of emergency contraception will not work if women choose not to take the pills.
