How to get a birth control prescription?

You can get a birth control prescription through a licensed Canadian healthcare practitioner. If you have a family doctor, they will be able to prescribe you birth control. A walk-in clinic can also provide birth control prescriptions. You may be asked when your last Pap smear was, and if you’re overdue for one the doctors may only give you a prescription for a few months, encouraging you to get your regular Pap smear and then come back for a longer prescription.

The easiest way to get a birth control prescription is through an online healthcare provider like Felix. Your prescription will still be written by a licensed healthcare professional, as is legally required in Canada, but you don’t have to visit them in person to get it. Instead, you can complete an online consultation, provide the necessary information about your medical history and anything else that may be relevant, and get your prescription without having to leave your home.

You can then order your birth control directly to your doorstep through Felix, so you can skip the pharmacy trip, too. With recurring deliveries, you don’t have to worry about realizing you’re at the end of your pack of pills without a refill ready to go.
