The World Health Organization (WHO), American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and other health leaders have advised doctors that a pelvic exam/pap test is not medically indicated for women wanting birth control pills. In fact, women taking birth control pills can be at increased risk of a false positive pap test result due to altered hormone levels http://medicalcenter.osu.edu/mediaroom/releases/pages/birth-control-use-linked-to-abnormal-pap-test-result.aspx However, regardless of new research and recommendations, some doctors are continuing to withhold prescriptions until women first submit to a pap test/pelvic exam. In addition, some doctors are now linking sexually transmitted disease testing together with birth control prescriptions.
As a result, women have begun to find their own way around unwanted and unnecessary exams. Women who do not wish to submit to a pelvic exam/pap test/STD testing before being granted prescriptions are beginning to boycott doctors and unwanted exams by buying birth control pills online – no prescription required.
Here is what women are saying about buying birth control online:

- Haley, type in www medsmex dot com They have 13 different kinds of birth control pills; I used to order from them; they are fine. Look in the M section; there is one available for $5.88 per month. I’ll be ordering from them again if I get a decent tax refund check.
- Also, on Google, type in India pharmacy ethinyl estradiol * that is the chemical name for birth control pills. I have also spent countless hours searching online and would print the entire list of websites I have come up with, but always get my posts deleted when I do. I used to religiously order from a Thai place, but they shut down their website last March * I have five years’ worth stockpiled but need 130+ packs to last me through Menopause so I keep buying them every single time money permits.

I just received my package from New Zealand and professionally tucked inside were the 18 packs of birth control pills I’d ordered. I am euphoric; I don’t think it took 7-10 days to receive the package. I am elated. They were expensive, but as long as I have a way to stockpile them, I will continue to do so.

- buypharma.com sells several birth control, reasonably priced (I think), they ship worldwide, and although the site says, “Prescription is required for prescription medicines.” I have ordered and received good quality prescription medicine without a prescription from them. I received it in 1-2 weeks (In States). You can get other meds there too. It’s worth trying if you don’t want to get another invasive exam!!!
