:: MONTHLY SURVEY ::

 

The FDA may let teens 16 & older get emergency contraception (EC) from pharmacists without a prescription. Teens under 16 (or without ID to prove their age) would still need a doctor's prescription. If the FDA does this, would you ask a pharmacist for EC?
No. I am under 16.
No. I am 16+, but I don't have ID.
No. I am 16+, but I'd be too embarrassed to ask a pharmacist for EC.
No. Both B and C are true.
Yes. I am 16+, I have ID, and I wouldn't mind asking a pharmacist for EC.
