A single-arm study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and acceptability of pericoital oral contraception with levonorgestrel

This study sought to reevaluate the potential of pericoital levonorgestrel for pregnancy prevention. The study was stopped early due to low enrollment and feasibility concerns. The Pearl Index (22.4) was higher than expected; additional research could help identify whether the results were regimen or study related. Contraception. 2014 Mar;89(3):215-21.
