5 Brands Delivering Birth Control Straight To Your Door

Birth Control Made Simple

Women’s healthcare is healthcare. The pill, when introduced to the market in the ‘60s, revolutionized the way women make decisions about their own bodies and wellbeing. In addition to giving women the freedom to enjoy sex without worrying about pregnancy, the pill helps some women regulate their cycles, clear acne, reduce painful cramps, relieve symptoms of PMS/PMDD, and prevent uterine cancer and ovarian cysts.

The caveat is—it’s not always so easy to get the pill. Whether it’s through Planned Parenthood or a private practitioner, getting a prescription and affording the pill can be a lengthy process. Many women nowadays are opting for hassle-free birth control delivered straight to their doors, saving time and money. Here are some brands that are helping to revolutionize the accessibility of the pill. Check out this website for locations each of the following brands delivers to.
