‘Safe, Economical, And Effective’ Emergency Contraceptives Can Benefit Pakistanis

Huffington Post: Emergency Contraceptive Pills: The misunderstood savior for Pakistan?
Farahnaz Zahidi, writer, editor, media trainer, and communications expert

“…[The Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP)] is a safe, economical, and effective method of contraception. It has very few side-effects and can be used more than once with the consultation of a doctor but should not be used as a regular contraceptive. To gain maximum benefits, people need to know more about what is often called the morning-after pill. Above all, it need not be discussed in hushed tones. Contraception is a careful choice and Pakistanis need to make informed decisions regarding [family planning]. Better to be more informed about the ECP and be safe than sorry” (2/1).
