Grants to this Grantee
for a study of contraceptive failure with unprotected intercourse 5-14 days prior to initiation
A recent small study found that 25-50 percent of women seeking emergency contraception at a family planning clinic were not able to receive the most effective form of emergency contraception, the copper IUD, because current guidelines exclude women who have had unprotected sex more than five days ago. This grant will support the conclusion of a study to test whether the copper IUD is effective at preventing pregnancy for this group of women.
