Teens should stock up on morning-after pill

26th May 2010

The National Institute of Health and Clinical has said that teenagers and young women should be encouraged to stock up on supplies of the morning-after pill in advance in case of emergencies.

New draft guidance from the advisory body recommends that GPs, nurses and pharmacists should ensure all young women are able to obtain free emergency hormonal contraception, including advance provision. It wants access to contraceptive services for young people at convenient locations such as city centres, colleges and schools.
