FDA Approves the First Over-the-Counter Birth Control Pill in the United States

Another reproductive health battle has been won, as the FDA voted to approve the United States’ first over-the-counter birth control pill. 

The Associated Press reported Thursday, July 13, that the US Food and Drug Administration approved the once-daily birth control pill Opill to be sold at pharmacies and online retailers without a prescription. There are no age restrictions for sales. Perrigo, the company that manufactures Opill, will begin shipping the drug early next year.
