Emergency contraception in the UK

Emergency contraception in the UK

We have issued a briefing on the use of emergency contraception in the United Kingdom.

Recent research has revealed positive trends in contraceptive choices in the country — including increased use of long-acting contraceptives and a general increase in contraceptive use overall among young people. However, the United Kingdom still compares unfavourably to other European countries in rates of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.

Other briefings we have issued recently also are available for viewing.
