It will be a historic first.

The maker of the first over-the-counter birth control pill says to expect their product (Opill) on store shelves in the next few weeks.

The Food and Drug Administration approved the first over-the-counter birth control pill in the United States last summer. We discussed this news with practicing clinician Dr. Sara Gottfried, a New York Times best-selling author who has focused primarily on women’s health and hormones. Our conversation spans not just what to consider with the arrival of this new over-the-counter pill but what to watch for in women’s health trends in general, benefiting from Dr. Gottfried’s unique perspective as a patient, mother and clinician.
