NARAL Pro-Choice America and Amy Schumer Join Forces in Hilarious Video

Thanks to Amy Schumer, we can all have a good laugh about the hoops we jump through as women to get our birth control. Can you relate? Taking birth control is our decision and it often feels like the path to refilling our prescription is filled with road blocks. Who’s business is it anyway? Ours! This is the very issue that PrjktRuby continues to fight.

Deciding to start a birth control routine is your business and yours alone. This is just one of the many benefits of online prescribing:

Benefits of Online Ordering

  • Confidentiality – Your package will not have any labels on the outside revealing the contents within. Also, your medical info and ordering history are protected under the same laws as your normal medical records in the doctor’s office – HIPAA. Even if someone calls to ask about your medical information, they will be denied.
  • No Unnecessary Driving – Between driving to the doctor’s office for refills and heading to the pharmacy to pick up your pills, it can start to feel like a whole lot of extra miles. Ordering online allows you to still have a licensed physician write your prescription but it can all be done over the Internet, with your medication arriving directly to your home or office.
  • Get 3 Months of Pills at a Time – Most women need to make monthly trips to the pharmacy for their BC refills. Ordering online allows you to get up to 3 months of pills at a time.
  • Helping Women in Need – One of the most rewarding things about ordering BC online is that you are actually helping women in the developing world get their birth control too! For each month of birth control purchased through PrjktRuby during 2015, a 25 cent donation is made to help these women also gain access to birth control.

What are your biggest pet peeves when it comes to getting your birth control each month?
