Rates of unintended pregnancy and abortion are high, yet many doctors do not feel comfortable discussing emergency contraception with patients, even in cases of sexual assault. Since the approval of ulipristal acetate (ella) for emergency contraception, there has been even more confusion and controversy. This article reviews various emergency contraceptive options, their efficacy, and special considerations for use, and will attempt to clarify myths surrounding this topic.
