Apps Allow Women to Get Prescription Birth Control Without Visits to the Doctor
— The New York Times (@nytimes) June 19, 2016
These days, it seems like there's an app for everything, and that includes birth control.
New apps and websites are making it possible for women to get prescription contraceptives without going to the doctor.
The New York Times reported that at least six digital ventures provide prescriptions written by clinicians after women answer questions about their health online or by video.
Birth control pills and other contraceptives are then shipped directly to the women's homes.
These websites and apps require no legislative approval because the prescriptions are written by clinicians.
