Contrary to what many people think, having access to birth control is about more than just being sexually liberated. With the ability to control if, how and when we get pregnant, women have had more options in their lives beyond being a walking womb. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 62 percent of people with a uterus who are of reproductive age are currently using some form of contraception. 

But even though we've had some version of the birth control pill since the 1960s, it is only currently available with a prescription from a doctor. For some people, that's not a problem: They have a solid relationship with their primary care physician or OB-GYN and have no issues requesting and then receiving a prescription for birth control.

Unfortunately, that's not the case for everyone. Not everyone is in a position — geographically or financially — to get a birth control prescription from a doctor or pick it up from a pharmacy. Luckily, these five companies exist that allow you to get or renew a birth control prescription and have it delivered to your door.
