THE morning-after pill has now been made available over the counter in Spain.
Pharmacies across the country can offer the pill without the need to see a prescription.
Health Minister Trinidad Jimenez announced the plans, but stressed that the pill should not be used as an excuse to forgo normal methods of contraception.
Jimenez explained: “It is an emergency method of contraception, not to be used except in emergencies.”
The pills are available to woman of any age for less than 20 euros.
