University students' awareness and use of contraception and emergency contraception

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Teenage births and abortion rates are high in Britain, and sexually transmitted infections are on the increase.
This study aimed to investigate students’ awareness and use of contraception.
Findings indicate that young people feel uncomfortable talking about sex with their parents; and pharmacists’ gender and/or ethnicity appear to influence females’ decisions to request emergency contraception.
