Plan B Use Up in the Past 10 Years

Emergency contraceptive use has increased dramatically in the past decade, says a new study. Researchers from National Center for Health Statistics found that 11 percent of sexually active women ages 15 through 44 had used one of the four brands of emergency contraceptive pills — Plan B — between 2006 and 2010, compared to 4 percent in 2002, wrote NPR.
