New ICEC Fact Sheet: Using Oral Birth Control Pills as EC

ICEC has written a new fact sheet; “Using Oral Birth Control Pills as EC”. When no products marketed specifically for emergency contraception are available, combined oral contraceptives – regular birth control pills – can also be used as EC. This is known as the “Yuzpe” method. The Yuzpe method offers critical EC access for women without access to dedicated ECPs. The fact sheet is available in both English and Spanish.
