A US federal judge today ordered the food and drugs of the United States (FDA) Administration that so-called "morning after pill" available without a prescription for women of all ages, the local press reported.

This decision revokes the taken by the Health Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, whereby girls under 17 years of age needed a prescription to gain access to the drug.

According to CNN, the judge who made the decision, Edward Korman, of Brooklyn, said that order should be out in a month and argued that the number of cases that can be of 11 year-olds using the drug is minimal.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommended last year that oral contraceptives are sold without a prescription in an effort to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies in the country, since the requirements may delay access to the pill and that this does not effect.

Emergency contraception prevents pregnancy by preventing a fertilized egg is embedded in the uterus.

They are designed for use within 72 hours after intercourse, but they are most effective if taken within the first 24 hours.

Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd. became the first pharmaceutical in distributing the use emergency contraceptive prescription in United States in 1999

Teva had also requested the Government to allow sales of the pill without restrictions.
