For most women, birth control isn’t exactly an easy item to pick up. First, you have to make a doctor’s appointment and wait for an opening. Then you have to get yourself to the clinic, taking time off work to wait some more to get a health exam you might not even be due for — which you may not have the insurance to pay for. Then you take the prescription to the pharmacy, where there’s more waiting. The whole process can easily take weeks.
