Oral Emergency Contraception Guidelines

Immediately prompted by the European Commission's decision to change the dispensing regime of emergency contraception drug EllaOne® from the prescription to the non-prescription status, two gynecological societies and one gynecological section of the Croatian Medical Association decided to issue oral emergency contraception guidelines. It was their aim to summarize all available scientific information and clearly articulate professional positions on key aspects of emergency contraception so that healthcare professionals can help women in  safe and effective use of these contraceptive methods, in order to obtain the ultimate goal of reducing the number of unplanned pregnancies and abortions.
