Because She Has an Option
According to 2001 data, about half of 6.4 million pregnancies in the United States are unintended, and more than 1.3 million pregnancies are prematurely terminated each year.1 Facing an unintended pregnancy after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure can be difficult for your patients and they may look to you for information and guidance.
Emergency contraception is one option you may want to discuss with them. Taken within the days immediately following unprotected sex, emergency contraception can reduce the likelihood that a woman will become pregnant.2
Next Choice One Dose™ is a generic emergency contraceptive pill (bioequivalent to Plan B One-Step®).3 It is available behind the pharmacy counter and sold under a licensed pharmacist’s supervision, providing women 17 years of age or older with an accessible, easy-to-take emergency-contraception option. Only women younger than 17 years of age require a prescription.4
