Emergency Contraception - User's Profile
Emergency Contraception - Observational Study of User's Profile
Retrospective analysis of requests of emergency hormonal contraception using pharmacy protocols registered in 2003 and 2006.

In 2002, Levonorgestrel was introduced in Switzerland for emergency hormonal contraception (EC) without prescription ('pharmacist only'). In 2003, a first analysis of requests of EC showed that the dispensing of EC through pharmacies could successfully be implemented (Lemke et al 2004).

This study was repeated three years later with the aim to explore whether the user's profile has changed after introduction of a low threshold access to EC.

Non-Probability Sample

Pharmacies in Basle, Berne or Zurich, three major towns in the German speaking part of Switzerland, were purposively recruited if they had extended opening hours (emergency pharmacies) or if they were located downtown and open during traditional business hours (walk-in pharmacies).

The pharmacists were asked if a pharmacy student could come to their place and photocopy the completed official one-page EHC written assessment forms.
