In the U.S., the unintended pregnancy rate remains high; nearly half (49%) of all pregnancies are unplanned. The fact that nearly half of the 3.1 million unintended pregnancies that occur in the U.S. each year occur in women who reported taking contraception during the month they conceived emphasizes the need for increased access to emergency contraception. With Plan B One-Step ®, women can take an additional step to prevent an unintended pregnancy after contraceptive failure or unprotected sex.“Teva, as well as women’s health advocates and leading medical professionals, has worked for years to increase access to this time-sensitive product that is critically important to all women of reproductive age,” said Martin Berndt, Vice President & General Manager, U.S. Brand Pharmaceuticals, Teva Women’s Health, Inc. “As is customary for any prescription to full over-the-counter switch, and as requested by the FDA, Teva completed a clinical study to support non-prescription marketing of Plan B One-Step ®. Teva is the only company that has conducted actual use and label comprehension studies required by the FDA, which show that women of all ages understand how to use Plan B One-Step ®.”
