Still Open: 2017 ASEC EC Access and Price Survey

The American Society for Emergency Contraception (ASEC) is currently conducting a survey on EC access and pricing across the United States. Current US regulations allow levonorgestrel ECPs to be sold directly on the shelf to women and men of any age with no restrictions, yet reports from around the US found that this is not always the case.

A call for help was issued for anyone who is in the United States and is interested in helping to collect data on ECPs in their local community. All that is needed from a participant is to take a trip to a local pharmacy and answer a few questions in a google survey on how levonorgestrel EC is being sold and how much it costs.

We are interested to see the results on whether store personnel still believe that restrictions based on age or gender exist, and whether consumers need to show ID to purchase EC in the US.

If you would like to be part of this activity, you can email Kelly (kcleland@princeton.edu) or Jamie (jamie@americansocietyforec.org) to obtain the survey or with any questions you have.
