As the largest city in South Korea, Seoul has advanced and varied medical services. Contraceptives (birth control) can be purchased at pharmacies over-the-counter though you need a doctor's prescription for emergency contraception. While many facilities offer STI tests, it is important to exercise caution and choose anonymous testing centers. If you are a foreigner and test positive for HIV/AIDS or syphilis, you will most likely be deported from South Korea. For many years, abortion was illegal, but the laws are currently in a state of transition (see "Abortion" section below for details). As of 2021, abortion appears to be on its way to being decriminalized, but abortion is still not available upon demand.<ref>[https://www.hrw.org/news/2020/10/12/south-korea-partially-recognizes-reproductive-rights South Korea Partially Recognizes Reproductive Rights]</ref>
