Abstract

Sales of emergency hormonal contraception (EHC) in community pharmacies began in 2001
This study set out to explore the views of a small group of women purchasing EHC in community pharmacies, using qualitative techniques
Users were broadly positive about pharmacy sales of EHC, citing access, convenience and confidentiality as key benefits
Four out of 12 respondents made a decision to engage in unprotected intercourse because they were aware that EHC was available from the pharmacy
More research is required to explore the impact of pharmacy sales of EHC on unprotected intercourse and sexually transmitted infections
