Despite its undisputed safety and efficacy, enhancing women's access to emergency contraception has been controversial. Some of this controversy is related to the anomalous position of emergency contraception in the family-planning repertoire: anomalous because it is used after sex. At the same time, some developments in emergency contraception, aimed at combating teenage and unwanted pregnancy, have been reported in particularly lurid terms by the mass media, conflating concerns about sexual morality, inappropriate use of contraception, and the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
