Increases in Retail Sales of Over-the-counter Levonorgestrel Emergency Contraception in the United States, 2016-2022.

Contraception 2024 March 9
OBJECTIVE: To understand patterns in demand for emergency contraception (EC), we characterize the sales of over-the-counter (OTC) levonorgestrel (LNG) EC in the United States from traditional retail outlets.

STUDY DESIGN: We describe sales of OTC LNG EC using retail sales data aggregated from traditional retail channels, including grocery stores, drug stores, mass merchandisers, club stores, dollar stores, and military outlets.

RESULTS: Sales of OTC LNG EC doubled between 2016 and 2022 (approximately 7.2 to 14.8 million).

CONCLUSION: Increasing sales of EC are consistent with increased use and use frequency of EC by those at risk of pregnancy in the US.
