Get Birth Control from Your Local Pharmacy
Rather than scheduling an appointment with your doctor (which can take weeks), receive your birth control prescription and refills directly from our pharmacies. Our pharmacists can prescribe and dispense trans-dermal and oral contraceptives to women ages 18 and older, as well as minors (if they have a previous prescription from their physician.) We provide a faster and more convenient way to get birth control, because we understand that getting in to see your doctor is time consuming.
The most common use for birth control is to prevent unwanted pregnancy; however, birth control can also be used to treat hormonal imbalances, menstrual cramps, acne and decrease the risk for ovarian cysts. It has also been prescribed to assist with endometriosis, lack of periods, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and more.
Birth control is a time sensitive medication, meaning that failure to take it on time or missing a dose could result in a decrease of its effectiveness. If your prescription refill is stalled by a visit to your doctor, it could affect whether you take it on time. That’s why we recommend visiting us to get your birth control refills.
It’s a simple process! If you’re interested in receiving your contraception from our pharmacy, stop by to fill out a questionnaire and get your blood pressure checked. Assuming there are no issues, we can easily prescribe you with the option of your choice. Of course, we recommend seeing your doctor for regular wellness exams and other women’s health needs.
As with all medications, you should be aware of the risks before you begin taking it. Our pharmacists are happy to help you understand the medication you will be taking, and warning signs to look for, just in case the medication isn’t right for your body.
