GPs to offer advance prescriptions of emergency contraception to young women


I am liberal on this this but it is interesting and necessary to explore the reasons why OTC hasn't worked to its full capacity to cover these emergency contraception . Obviously , public awareness is an issue . If you do a survey on young girls and ask how many of them know emergency contraception is available in pharmacy , you wonder what the result will be?The media should be more 'responsible' in educating the public positively(rather than reporting negativity all time) The other thing is privacy and confidentiality which might have prevented some girls to ask for EC OVER THE COUNTER as such........
