Birth Control Service Wants to Deliver Your Pills in Two Hours
Access to birth control expands with the help of a mobile delivery app
Getting birth control comes with a variety of challenges including access, financial feasibility and time. Simply getting a doctor appointment can be half the battle; it’s not often that you can simply call in and get seen the next day. Even then, it can be hard to juggle a work schedule with appointments. A new service called NURX could make this process simpler and faster.
The app and mobile website lets patients order birth control pills (and PrEP) with just a few steps. The user simply fills out some information, finds their preferred brand, and sends the request to one of NURX’s doctors. From there, a doctor can get in contact with follow-up questions or approve the prescription for NURX to deliver.
