Women have many contraceptive tools available to them, however the rate of unplanned and mistimed pregnancies remains high. In fact, nearly half remain unintended.
What’s more, while one in two women may need an emergency contraceptive in their lifetime, only 10 percent have actually used it.* 
When it comes to pregnancy prevention if one's pregnancy prevention plans fail--preparation and control are key. 
As part of the mission to empower women with education and access to emergency contraception, Keech Combe-Shetty, CEO of Vagisil, part of one of the most personal Personal Care companies in the world and Dr. Logan Levkoff, an internationally recognized expert on sexuality and relationships, are on hand to discuss the latest news, information, and fact versus fiction when it comes to this issue.
