WESTPORT, Conn., Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- is reporting that this week's World Health Organization's Interim Guidance on the prevention of the Zika virus provides another reason why women and men need to take steps to eliminate unprotected sex.  The AfterPill brand of emergency contraception provides an affordable option at its website so a woman can be prepared in the event of unprotected sex or birth control failure.

The World Health Organization (WHO) in its "Prevention of potential sexual transmission of Zika virus" interim guidance published on February 18, 2016, highlights the importance of access to emergency contraception:  "Women who have had unprotected sex and do not wish to become pregnant because of concern with infection with Zika virus should also have ready access to emergency contraceptive services and counselling." 

"At we help make emergency contraception more affordable with savings up to 60% off the national retail brands," says John Linderman, Managing Director of Syzygy Healthcare, the makers of the AfterPill brand of emergency contraception.   " provides 100% availability and unrestricted access to the best-selling and #1 doctor-recommended emergency contraception medicine for $20 plus shipping, helping to make emergency birth control more affordable and available for women," he commented.

About AfterPill

AfterPill is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized over-the-counter emergency contraceptive (1.5 mg levonorgestrel) tablet made in the U.S. for use by women ages 17 and older.  The dramatically lower price of AfterPill is intended to make emergency birth control more affordable and to encourage advance purchase so it is more quickly available in the event of unprotected sex or if birth control failure occurs. The sooner a woman takes a levonorgestrel-based emergency contraceptive, the more effective it is at preventing pregnancy, and research has shown it to be most effective within the first 12 hours.
