Why I Love My Pill Club Subscription

The Pill Club is an online subscription for women’s birth control. They have a range of prescriptions to choose from, including patches, pills and rings, and they have pharmacists on staff to write you a prescription. The Pill Club offers monthly, tri-monthly and yearly shipping options. I personally love the monthly option because I have a little something to look forward to each month! The Pill Club requires you to either submit a clear picture of your insurance card for them to run or a debit/credit card for them to charge if you do not have/want to use insurance. You must also answer a general health questioner and provide a shipping address. That’s it! There is no catch or any bog hassle when it comes to Pill Club. 

  1. 1. It is Super Affordable With or Without Insurance

    I personally have insurance, so I pay nothing, not even shipping! But, I love that even women without insurance have access to affordable birth control. According to the Pill Club website, they work with drug companies to offer the lowest rates for prescription birth control. 

  2. 2. It Comes with Free Samples

    Each month (if you choose to get it monthly), you get a free sample of some sort of health product, like a tampon, lube, a condom or face cream. You also get a really cool sticker and a sample of candy. My favorite sticker so far has been a fall-themed one that reads "harvest happy," and my favorite candy had been the chocolate *insert huge heart eyes.* Plus, there are sometimes coupons for the full-size versions of the samples that they send out. That way, if you love the product, you can get it for a discounted price! 

  3. 3. You Can Get Female Condoms and Plan B

    Most people don’t know this, but many people can get Plan B and female condoms through their insurance for no cost. If you request it with your birth control, they will send either the Plan B, the female condoms or both in a separate package from your birth control. This amazes me because Plan B in the store sells for about $50, which is ridiculous. 

  4. 4. It Comes in a Discrete Package (and You Don’t Have to Go Get It!)

    The Pill Club packaging is bright pink and has no symbols or markings that let people know what is in the package. This is great for people who feel embarrassed about their birth control (which they shouldn’t be) and for anyone that doesn’t want to put their business out in the open! Also, it is super convenient that it gets shipped right to your mailbox. I love that I don’t have to go to a pharmacy to pick it up! 

Overall, the Pill Club is my favorite package that I receive each month! Every time I see that little pink package, I know that I am in for something great. Whether it be a sample of face wash or some fruity gummy candy, I know that I’m going to love it!
