No, you do not need a prescription from a doctor or pharmacist for Opill®. Opill® can be purchased over the counter at Kinney Drugs and on Instacart.

Around 1 in 3 adult women who have tried to get a prescription or refill for a birth control pill, patch, or ring have experienced difficulty or were unable to get their next supply in time. Opill® provides a hassle-free and convenient way to prevent pregnancy.


Opill® is a full-prescription strength birth control pill that is 98% effective at preventing pregnancy when used as directed. It is more effective at preventing pregnancy than any other over-the-counter method available.

Opill® works by thickening your cervical mucus, which helps to block sperm from getting to an egg. In addition, Opill® may prevent ovulation, but not in all cycles. You must take it at the same time every day to prevent pregnancy. Opill® is effective from 48 hours after you begin taking it.

Opill® is a progestin-only birth control pill (sometimes referred to as a POP or the mini pill). Many birth control pills on the market contain a combination of estrogen and progestin. Opill® only contains one type of hormone (progestin) and is estrogen-free. Like all daily oral contraceptives, Opill® should be taken once a day, at the same time. 

Opill® does not protect against HIV/AIDS or other STDs. Only condoms can protect against STDs.
