Sure, the 21st century is alllll kinds of messy, but there *are* certain things we have today that I, for one, am v thankful for. Like being able to order a bottle of wine without having to venture out to the liquor store. Or hitting a few buttons on my phone and then poof, a hot meal is greeting me at my door post-evening commute. Or the other amazingly convenient straight-to-your-door service that is birth control delivery.

I know. Ordering meds online sounds a little sketchy, but just hear me out. There are literally so many reasons why online birth control is a great resource. For example, let's say you have access to birth control, but it's not super easy for you to actually get it, like, if you’re on a college campus and your regular doc isn’t nearby to hook you up with your monthly pill packs. Or if you're in a pharmacy desert and have to travel miles to a drugstore. A birth control delivery may be your best bet (And FWIW, it's also equally fantastic for those of us who just hate making an out-of-the-way trip to the pharmacy (hi!)).

And get this: None of your neighbors will feel the need to be all nosy because these delivery services use super discreet packaging. Contrary to what the Supreme Court thinks, it’s no one’s damn business what you’re taking for your reproductive health—especially if you need that Plan B, stat. Yup, some sites also offer emergency contraception with a fast turnaround so you don’t have to make that morning-after trip to the pharmacy.

If none of that has eased your concerns, know that nearly all of the delivery websites and apps have licensed clinicians and require consultations to get a prescription. It’s all legit, promise. That said, we did some homework so you can figure out which BC delivery service is the one for you. Below, find our picks for the best birth control websites and apps on the market right now—along with everything you need to know about them.

Alpha Medical

Have you ever searched for an ob-gyn clinic for literal hours, finally found one, booked an appointment, and then showed up only to realize your insurance wasn’t accepted? That was me literally last week until I heard of Alpha Medical and basically had my entire life changed. Not only are most insurances accepted at this virtual clinic (all you gotta do is upload your insurance card!), but it also offers the patch, ring, and pill. And! Those v annoying paperwork processes are not a thing here. You just fill out a super easy-to-follow medical questionnaire, then an Alpha Medical rep reaches out for a consultation appointment—which costs at most $15. Together, you and the rep will go over your personal treatment plan before they shoot your Rx off to their mail-order pharmacy. Alpha also has subscriptions: $25 for a month's supply of pills or $45 for a three-month supply. And that’s the non-insured price tag, so it’s super reasonable for everyone. Yes and amen to saving those coins!


  • Prescribes the birth control pill and the patch monthly and quarterly

  • Virtual visits cost $15, which covers the online consultation and shipping fees

  • Offers emergency contraceptives


  • The ring is only available on a monthly basis

  • Depending on your insurance, you might need a pre-authorization form for your online consultation

Amazon Pharmacy

Listen, the Amazon-industrial complex deserves some real side-eye, but including Amazon Pharmacy on this list was a no brainer because it's truly so good, convenient and accessible. If your ob-gyn is prescribing you BC for the first time, they can send it to Amazon Pharmacy, like they do any local drugstore. Or, if you have an existing prescription, you can transfer it to Amazon Pharmacy yourself. Pricing all depends on insurance—which Amazon does take—and the brand you choose.


  • You do not need an Amazon Prime subscription to order from the pharmacy

  • Ships to all states, and Prime Members get the standard two-day free shipping

  • Has a 30-day or 90-day supply option

  • Accepts most insurance plans

Amazon Clinic

You get a few options with Amazon Clinic, which yes, is different than it's sister up above. Not only can one of their licensed clinicians prescribe you a brand new birth control order (yep, even if you've never used BC before!), but you can also use the service for refills. For both, just fill out the intake form, which won't take you more than 10 minutes, tops. After it's submitted, one of the healthcare workers will reach out for a consultation to determine if the pill, patch, or ring is right for you. You can have the Rx filled through Amazon Pharmacy, or you'll have to make a trip to an IRL drugstore to pick up your meds.
