Birth Control: Apps Allow Women to Obtain Prescription Contraceptives Without Doctor Visits

Birth Control: Apps Allow Women to Obtain Prescription Contraceptives Without Doctor Visits

Yes, there is an app for that.

There are some new apps and websites that prescribe women and teens birth control without ever stepping foot in a doctor’s office.

Those who use the apps say taking time out for a doctor’s visit can be stressful and time-consuming.

So how does the app work?

In most of the apps, the woman answers some questions about her health online or through video chat.

Then the woman is paired with a doctor who talks them through the service and sends the prescription to their local pharmacy.

Some even ship the birth control right to their front door.

These new websites and apps require no legislative approval since clinicians still write the prescriptions and need to follow the state laws for telemedicine.
