What is Opill®?
Opill® is a progestin-only daily oral contraceptive (birth control pill) that’s safe and effective when used as directed to help prevent pregnancy. It’s the only over-the-counter birth control pill available in the United States. Opill® helps prevent pregnancy in women and people who can become pregnant. It’s not an emergency contraceptive (morning after pill) and won’t prevent pregnancy when used after unprotected sex. It also doesn't protect against HIV/AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Why should I use an over-the-counter birth control pill?
Opill® is a full prescription strength birth control pill that is more effective at preventing pregnancy than any other over-the-counter method available. You can find it in the aisles at most major retailers nationwide and online. This way, you can save time and avoid the inconvenience of visiting a doctor. According to a recent study, almost 1/3 of adult women who have tried to get a prescription or refill for a birth control pill, patch or ring have had trouble or were unable to get their next supply in time*. Opill® provides a hassle-free and convenient way to prevent unintended pregnancies.
Where can I buy Opill®?
Opill® will be available in the aisles of most major retailers nationwide and will be available online.
