FSRH Position on Emergency Contraception

Our beliefs

FSRH believes that emergency contraception is an essential part of sexual and reproductive health care, and gives women a wider range of choices if they do not wish to become pregnant. Increased access to emergency contraception is an important way of reducing unintended pregnancy - both in the event of unprotected sexual intercourse and when methods of contraception fail. We believe women need to have more information about the most reliable methods of emergency contraception.

Our Vision

FSRH would like to see a UK where emergency contraception is free, easily accessible for all women and available without harassment or stigma. This should include signposting and access to more reliable methods.
