Emergency contraceptives Opened a site to introduce medical institutions that can be prescribed on Sundays and holidays September 29, 8:07
A website has been set up to introduce medical institutions that can prescribe emergency contraceptives to be taken to prevent unexpected pregnancies on Sundays and public holidays.
Emergency contraceptives and after-pills are medicines to prevent unexpected pregnancy, such as when you are sexually assaulted or have failed contraception, and should be taken within 72 hours after sexual activity.
Currently, as a general rule, a doctor's prescription is required, but dealing with days when there are few open medical institutions such as Sundays and holidays is an issue.
Under these circumstances, the website "Pill Nyan", which was supervised by an obstetrician and gynecologist at Saitama Medical University Hospital, has a list of hospitals nationwide that can prescribe emergency contraceptives on Sundays and public holidays. ..
In the Kanto region, a total of 89 pieces of information are introduced, including gynecological clinics and emergency outpatient clinics.
It also lists the types of emergency contraceptives and what you should be aware of after taking them.
Dr. Sachiko Takahashi, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Saitama Medical University Hospital, said, "The sooner you take the medicine, the higher the effect of contraception, so please use the site so that you can get it when you need it."
