Study: Young women unaware of emergency contraception

A pharmaceutical company has found that young women lack awareness about emergency contraception.

The HPI study suggested that 87% of women aged between 18 and 19 thought they would be confident that they would not get pregnant after taking a morning after pill.

Radio 5 live Morning Reports spoke to 'Lucy'. She fell pregnant just before her first year exams in May because she didn't use contraception and said the sex education she received was inadequate.
