First ever over-the-counter birth control pill now sold in US and available on Amazon with Walmart & Walgreens to follow

March 20, 2024

THE first ever over-the-counter birth control pill is now available for purchase online in the United States. For now, the pill is available for purchase on Opill's website and Amazon. CVS said the pill will be available online and through the app in late March, with in-store availability expected by early April. Opill has been available with a prescription since 1973, but last July marked the first time a birth control pill was approved for over-the-counter sales by the FDA. Most insurance plans have to cover prescription birth control under the Affordable Care Act, but the laws differ state by state for birth control without a prescription.
