Unintended pregnancy continues to be a focus of public health efforts in the United States. The purpose of this study was to identify characteristics that contribute to the use of emergency contraception by women who utilize Planned Parenthood for their contraception needs. Emergency contraception is underutilized and further education could assist in preventing unintended pregnancy. This study reviewed data from a telephone survey 6 months after an initial Planned Parenthood clinic visit from February 2006 to January 2007. The participants were ages 16-25 at the time of survey, with the final sample including 50 women. SPSS 22 was used to analyze the data, and statistical analyses included descriptive statistics (e.g., frequencies), chi-square tests, and Fisher's exact test. This study found a statistically significant association between education level and the use of emergency contraception. Also, a statistically significant association between race/ethnicity and the use of emergency contraception was found among this group of women. This particular research will be helpful for developing education efforts and public health interventions to minority patients and patients with low levels of education.
