Birth control, babyyyy. While it’s not the sexiest conversation, it is a necessary one. Unless you’re looking to procreate, having a discussion with your partner about what birth control measures you need to use is vital. If you’re single and just want to be sure, finding the right option can be a hassle. I’m not going to discuss every viable option though, I just wanted to write about online contraception service providers I’ve seen on my Instagram ads.
Bless that little photo app (although it really isn’t one currently) – because the ads? They’re scarily accurate most of the time. Recently, I’ve seen a few ads for online birth control delivery services. I was intrigued to see how this would work out. I’m pretty lazy and will easily pay for convenience when it makes sense. So, I thought I would check out what these services were all about, in case anyone else was curious.
Disclaimer: I aim to make my content as inclusive as possible. Birth control isn’t just a cis women’s issue. All information shared was accurate at the time I found it.
And if you have any other suggestions to share, please let me know!
MyContraceptive® by Zoie Health is an online contraceptive delivery service in South Africa. It offers some of the most effective birth control methods, all from your mobile device in the comfort of your home.
In the last couple months, MyContraceptive was the first ad I saw on Instagram. The service was conceptualised by Dr Nonhlanhla Sithole and Thato Schermer, who have also co-founded Zoie Health, Africa’s first digital women’s health clinic.
