Kaiser Permanente (KP) has been on the forefront of educating providers and members about emergency contraception (EC) since 1996, even before a dedicated product was available. EC is up to 89% effective and is exceedingly safe for all women at risk for an unintended pregnancy. Despite awareness efforts, EC has remained underutilized. Recognizing this fact, recommendations were made by a California-wide EC Task Force to increase prophylactic prescribing by all providers who care for women of childbearing age, especially those who are exposed to teratogenic medications and chronic conditions that negatively impact pregnancy.
