    I so do not want to have that conversation with my pharmacist. Especially in front of other customers.

    That is your choice, but in most pharmacies I have gone to, even at Safeway have a private consulting room

They are not exposing themselves to STDs, but they're still engaging in sexual intercourse. That's okay, right? Because well she's not taking a drug and not getting herpes or chlamydia or whatever. To me it all goes back to sex ed and the availability of information. Everyone's in a tizzy about the end result - preventing pregnancy with the MAP and how dare a girl so young make that decision on her own, but on the other hand lots of people don't want anyone teaching their kids about sex but them, like how DARE our educators have some kind of power over the decisions our kids make by actually performing part of a (hopefully) preemptive strike and making kids think twice about having sex long before they are emotionally and mentally ready. Gosh. Heaven forbid.
    Trouble is about the tampons, is maybe we should! Isn't that what sex ed should cover in school ?.. if so then why would a good friend of mine have his sister DIE from it! Yes she was public schooled.. she had sisters and a mom.. not sure why but maybe a quick talk from the pharmacist the first time she got them and then had the ability to wave the consult would have saved her life.....

    Since when is more information bad?

    I don't think anyone is saying more information is bad but why is one thing more important than the other. I don't use tampons unless I absolutely need to...they give me cramps. We learned about them in 5th grade and TSS. I already knew about it because of talks with Mom. I don't feel it is necessary to have a pharmacist talk to me about them...what a waste of everyone's time and I know I've seen the TSS warning on a box of tampons. I would think the insert received for the MAP would be enough and of course a pharmacist could spend some time with anyone that had questions on risks or how to take properly.

    My pharmacy doesn't have a private counseling area that I know of. it's pretty quiet there though.

    I have never seen that before. That doesn't exist here, as far as I know, perhaps since real estate is at a premium. Every conversation is out in public.

    Anyway . . . I don't think anyone objects to physical information being given out with this pill, but the suggestion was made that some sort of counseling by a pharmacist be required to get it, which doesn't make sense, especially given the horror expressed by many of the same posters at the thought of sex ed in schools.

    I guess I want people who use it to be informed. From what I saw, the average user is 27 years old so I assume that most of the users are informed and either had an accident with birth control or chose not to use any. I would prefer to catch the people who are not using any yet don't want to be pregnant.

    I have no problem with it being available without a prescription. I don't understand why treating it as an OTC medicine is a problem though. No one would force the pharmacist to talk to you, just like any other medicine but it should be an option.

    Where I used to live they had the little rooms but not here. The pharmacy tech does ask you if you want to speak with the pharmacist and for anything more private than "take this with food" I would still ask to speak in private, even if it was off to the side.

    How on earth would the pharmacist know that it was the "first" time? Do you truly believe that PHARMACISTS should tie up their time providing tampon counseling to every woman or girl purchasing tampons? I'm giggling at the idea. Can you imagine the cost to pharmacies? They would probably need to double their on staff pharmacists.

    And frankly, no, I don't believe that your friends sisters death highlights a failure of the public schools, or of our collective system of pharmacists. Sadly, sometimes crap happens.

    My 13 year old and I had a conversation about this last night. She believes that if a girl is not willing to have a conversation with an adult to laccess it, she is probably not prepared to have sex. She thinks that if the girl was embarrassed a little it might be a good thing, next time she has sex she might be more careful.

    Thought that was an interesting thought from a person in the age group that is effected by this law change

    I think girls that age are NOT prepared to have sex. . .but that doesn't mean I don't want them to have access to this drug over the counter. The problem is that they are having sex anyway.
