WHERE TO GET IT /
online delivery services
Depending where you live, you may not even have to leave your house to get birth control. In many states, online services are making it easier than ever to get methods like the pill, the patch, the ring, and emergency contraception prescribed and delivered right to your door—in discreet packaging, of course.
Some of these services involve Skype-style video chats with a health care provider. Others require you to complete a short health questionnaire. Many provide free shipping and accept health insurance. You may be able to sign up for automatic refills, so you won’t have to worry about remembering to order your next batch.
