Interview Transcript

Announcer: The Health Minute, produced by University of Utah Health.

Interviewer: Buying birth control online, is that a safe and reliable option? Dr. Kirtly Jones, what advice do you have?

Dr. Jones: So there is more than one way to get birth control online. One way is through the clinics that now have services where you can have an online, face-to-face interview with a licensed clinician to get a prescription. Some websites will take insurance. Some will deliver the prescriptions to your home. Of course, you won't have access to the most effective methods of reversible contraception online like IUDs and implants. You have to go to clinics to have those placed. But getting birth control online is an option available to women because the most important issue is to give options to women who have limited access for some reason and allow every child to be planned and wanted.
