Abstract : For the last fifteen years, concerns about sexuality and reproduction are key issues of public health in France and among them, the use of emergency contraception. In the first chapter, the author describes how pharmacists are facing a growing use of emergency contraception, persistent misconceptions and perceived discomfort of the patients. He is most of the time the one and only contact of patients seeking an emergency contraception. His role is critical as a drug expert having prerogatives in public health such as health education and prevention. In the second chapter, emergency contraception is sumerized. The third part is methods and results of a survey among pharmacists in Gironde, south west of France, about knowledge and practices of emergency contraception delivering. Despite contrasting practices, they show adequate logistics and global knowledge. They also express the desire to strengthen their continuing ous education and training. Recent advances in continuous professional development and tools provided by health authorities will help pharmacists improving their practices and their patients acquiring consistent and updated information on emergency contraception.
