Birth Control Pharmacies is a resource for women in certain states who want to find a pharmacist to directly handle their birth control needs. Users can search for a birth control pharmacy near them and the pharmacist will go over health history, maybe take a blood pressure exam, and then prescribe the birth control for you to walk out with immediately. The service offers the pill, the ring, the patch, and the shot.
On the Birth Control Pharmacies site, you can learn more about what it means to be prescribed birth control from a pharmacist. Then, you can find a pharmacy close to you (if you live in select states) and call ahead or walk in to find the trained specialist. After a review of your medical history and blood pressure, the pharmacist can prescribe the best and most affordable birth control for you.
Skip The Doctor
Even though an annual wellness exam with your doctor is still recommended, it is not needed to prescribe hormonal birth control. These trained pharmacists can go over the options with you, find the best option, and prescribe it after just a review of your health history and a blood pressure exam. You may have to pay a visit fee but the birth control can be paid for with your insurance if it covers it. Or if you are between insurances or don’t have insurance, this is an option to save you as much money as possible paying for it on your own.
