where to get birth control

I have been off birth control for over a year and am thinking about going back on it. I know it probably all requires a prescription, but I'm wondering if there's any other place you can pick it up, like at a pharmacy or Fred Meyer or something. This may be a really stupid question. I don't really care much about the price, more about just getting a hold of it within the next week.

You can technicially pick it up at any pharmacy, but you need a doctor's prescription. No business is going to give you birth control without a prescription.

There are a couple of online pharmacies that will mail you birth control when you consult with one of their physicians.

Yes unfortunatelty for bc pills you need a doctor prescription. However if you just want something for quickly well there is always condoms. Getting a doctor prescription is not a bad idea anyways as one should get checked by a physician when becoming sexually active.

You can go to your local health department and get them for free. You still have to be exmained by a doctor and then they give your a three or four month supply right there. Then you go back when you run out. Thats where I get mine that way I don't have to pay for them.
