Life is too short to wait in a doctor’s waiting room to get a repeat prescription for your usual contraception. We all know there are several methods of contraception available to Aussie women, including the oral contraceptive pill which has been available since the early ‘60s, giving women control over their health and fertility. But how easy is it for women to access the prescription they need?
Enter Doctors on Demand, an online service providing the ultimate patient experience making high quality health care accessible from the comfort of your own home. Prescriptions for your regular medication, including your contraception, can be requested simply by completing an online questionnaire, which is reviewed by our Australian registered doctors, to assess your suitability for the requested repeat medication.
The oral contraceptive pill, commonly referred to as ‘the pill’ has been used by over 100 million women worldwide. Australia was the second nation in the world to have access to this simple pill almost 60 years ago and now approximately 50% to 80% of Australian women use the pill at some stage of their reproductive lives. The pill comes in different forms and strengths and choosing the right one is an important individual choice and will depend on your general health, lifestyle and relationships. Different pills may suit you at different times in your life, so it is important to talk to a doctor about the choices available to you. While oral contraceptives are regarded as the most popular forms of contraceptives available today, recent studies have shown that more and more women are choosing alternative forms of hormonal contraception like injections, implants and the vaginal ring.
If you are stable on your course of contraception, then you simply need to regularly renew your prescription so that you don’t run short of medication. But do you really need to take time out of your busy schedule to visit the doctor when you are not actually sick?? Birth control in not an illness! Save yourself the risk of getting sick in a busy waiting room, by requesting your repeat prescription online.
And what’s even better is that you can request your script AT.ANY.TIME. There is no need to wait for an appointment to become available. Script requests placed within our usual business hours can normally be reviewed within one (1) hour and requests placed outside of business hours are generally completed within one (1) business day.
You can even have your medication delivered direct to your home or office, saving more precious time. You can do all of this for less than the cost of a regular doctors’ consult. Our consultation fee for a Quickscript review is only $25.
