The percentage of women, on the register, prescribed emergency hormonal contraception one or more times in the preceding 12 months by the contractor, who have received information from the contractor about LARC at the time of or within 1 month of the prescription
Women requiring emergency hormonal contraception should be given detailed information about and offered a choice of all methods, including LARC. It is often possible (and in many cases ideal practice) to commence an ongoing method of contraception at the same time as emergency hormonal contraception is given.
Some women seeking emergency contraception may be best served by being offered an emergency IUD. Emergency IUDs offer a slightly longer window period for action after unprotected intercourse than hormonal EC; they have a higher efficacy in prevention of pregnancy – and they provide excellent ongoing contraception if required.
Information from the contractor in written and verbal form. Leaflets
can be obtained from a number of sources however the fpa, a UK-wide sexual health
charity, has an excellent range of contraception leaflets including ‘Your Guide
to Contraception’, which, amongst other things, indicates LARC and non-LARC
methods clearly through the use of shading.
See indicator wording for requirement criteria.
