Introduction: Emergency contraception is the last chance to prevent unintended pregnancy. In countries where emergency contraception (EC) is offered, its availability and use vary widely due to factors such as regulations and policies regarding the method, providers and women’s understanding.
Objectives: 1. To study the awareness of emergency contraception among MBBS students.
2. To compare the awareness among males and females.
Methodology: Questionnaire based, cross-sectional, prospective study carried out and analysed by Chi square test and percentage.
Results: Almost all the students were aware about EC, but their knowledge was incomplete and inaccurate. Final year students and girls were more aware as compared to first year students and boys.
Conclusion: Women and teenagers must be provided with complete knowledge and over the counter availability of EC pills. It’s the need of the hour as the age of first contact is decreasing.
