Emergency Contraception – Can my spouse get emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) before she needs them?

Can my spouse get emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) before she needs them?

 

 

 

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the answer is yes. Your doctor should bring up ECPs at your spouse’s annual exam (when she has a pap smear or pap test). If the doctor does not talk about emergency contraception at her next exam, you and your partner should ask for it.
