Some of these services offer home delivery for free.

To access birth control, you don't necessarily need to go to the pharmacy. Online delivery services enable you to get birth control delivered to your doorstep for free. In most cases, you can obtain your birth control prescription online, too. There's no shortage of companies that provide these birth control services, whether you need the pill, the patch, the ring, shots or an IUD. 

This article covers basic information about getting birth control online, but make sure to do your research so you don't run into any hidden fees or other surprises. For example, some companies have age restrictions, some don't accept insurance and some don't provide their services in all states. Additionally, some companies don't actually prescribe -- you must transfer an existing birth control pill prescription from your health care provider to use their service. 

That said, there's probably something out there that will work for you. If you're interested in ordering online birth control and getting it delivered to your home, check out this comprehensive list.

Who should buy birth control online?

Anyone who is generally healthy and needs contraception can safely buy birth control using a birth control delivery service. Telemedicine companies use qualified health care professionals to prescribe hormonal contraception, or you can simply transfer an existing prescription you received from an in-person doctor visit. 

You shouldn't replace your annual visit to the gynecologist, or even your primary care doctor, with telemedicine services. Telemedicine screenings for birth control can't catch signs of cervical cancer, reproductive health issues or other health complications, so it's still important to get in-person patient checkups to make sure you're healthy.
