Women In California Can Purchase Birth Control Without a Doctor’s Prescription
Good news for women who have sex/want to have sex/love having sex and live in the Golden State.
Women of ANY age can now purchase birth control without a doctor’s prescription from pharmacies in California, according to the Los Angeles Times. Yup, this applies to all self-administered hormonal birth control. Think pills, patches, injections, and vaginal rings. Pretty much everything except for what a doctor has to insert — like IUDs.
So, how does one obtain their birth control of choice?
It’s actually super easy. The only thing you need to do is fill out a questionnaire at your local pharmacy and have your blood pressure taken. You can request any birth control you desire, or your pharmacist can help you figure out the best one. Then, after the pharmacist assesses your questionnaire, you grab your birth control, and BAM — you get to have all the sex your little heart desires.
Cost remains the same. And if your BC is covered by insurance, don’t worry… it’ll still be!
Cali isn’t the first place to allow women to purchase birth control without a doctor’s prescription. Washington and Washington, D.C. first embraced the prescription-free method. But hey! Cheers, to making a boss bitch’s life a lot easier!
