The first approved over-the-counter birth control pill goes on sale in the US.

Norgestrel, the first oral contraceptive approved for use in the United States without a prescription and marketed under the name Opill, is on sale online starting this Mondayannounced the pharmaceutical company Perrigo.

”Since privacy is important to Perrigo, Opill will be shipped in boxes without prints or brands,” Sara Young, the firm’s vice president, explained in an email, adding that orders will be delivered in one or two days.

The contraceptive, which has already been sent to pharmacy chains, is available in one-month boxes for $19.99, three-month boxes for $49.99, and six-month boxes for $89.99.

Norgestrel is not new. It has been on the market for half a century as a prescription contraceptive until 2023. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined that it is safe for sale without that requirement in the country. These 75 milligram pills are oral contraceptives that must be administered at the same time each day and should not be used as emergency contraception.
