Buy your contraception online. Never run out again.

We all love options, but too many can be a bit overwhelming. Picking a birth control is hard enough — then you have to call for appointments, take time off work and do it all over again just to get your refills. Not anymore.

We’re EveAdam, and we’re here to change how you get your contraception. Think of us as a subscription for your prescriptions. A regular supply of birth control, shipped from a UK pharmacy on a schedule you set. And while we do carry tons of contraception options, you’ll consult with a licensed prescriber to get tailored recommendations that work for you.

No phone calls. No in-person appointments. No trips to the pharmacy. Just birth control, delivered.

What types of contraception are there?

There are four types of hormonal birth control that you take by yourself, and a few others that need to be administered by a doctor or nurse. The birth control options we carry at EveAdam are all DIY — once you’ve got your subscription plan, you’re good to go. And we definitely won’t make you chase us for refills.

EveAdam carries both the combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP), which contains progestin and oestrogen, and the progestogen-only pill (POP), also called the mini pill. Pills need to be taken every day at around the same time to be most effective.

We also have the patch, which is applied to the skin like a sticker and changed once a week, and the vaginal ring, which is inserted once a month.

Other types of birth control include the depo shot, the IUD (hormonal and non-hormonal) and the implant. You can’t administer those by yourself so we don’t carry them. There are also condoms, female condoms and the diaphragm, which you can get at a pharmacy and are great back-up options if you’re ever worried about your protection.

Which birth control is best?

Well, that depends on you. If you like the security of taking something every day and knowing you’re protected, we recommend the combined pill or mini pill. If you’d like a more low-maintenance option, the weekly patch may be better. And if you’re a set-it-and-forget-it type, the monthly ring might be just the thing.

Formulations make a difference too. Some women prefer pills with a higher oestrogen dose, because it helps them with symptoms like vaginal dryness or low sex drive. Others prefer a lower estrogen dose, because they’ll be less likely to get water retention or heavy periods.

The progestogen-only pill is good for women who can’t take estrogen because of health factors, or who are breastfeeding.

Ultimately, you’re you. You’re different from anyone else. And contraception is a personal type of deal. Taking an EveAdam consultation with a doctor can help you find the option that’s best for you.

How effective is hormonal contraception?

All four of the main types of hormonal birth control (combined pill, mini pill, patch and ring) are over 99% effective when they’re used exactly right.[1] That’s what doctors call “perfect use”. This 99% effectiveness means that if 100 women use one of these types of birth control for one year, fewer than one will get pregnant.

“Typical” use is a little bit less perfect and a lot more realistic. That’s when someone uses contraception but makes occasional mistakes, like forgetting a pill or putting a patch on too late. Typical use drops the effectiveness to between 91% and 94%. That means that six to nine women out of a hundred would become pregnant over the course of a year.

The best way to ensure your birth control is as effective as possible is to take it exactly as directed, which is why it’s so important to find the method that works best with your lifestyle.

Can I get an online prescription for contraception?

Yes. It starts with an EveAdam consultation. You’ll answer a series of simple health questions so one of our prescribers can get a good picture of your health and what you want out of your birth control. Then, they’ll suggest the options they think are right for you. Once you’ve picked the birth control you want, the doctor will write a prescription and send it to our preferred online pharmacy, who will fill it and ship it to you. 

Our pharmacy is based in the UK and shipping is quick, secure and discreet. You’ll get your first package within one working day. After that, you’ll get refills based on a schedule you set in your EveAdam profile. It can be every 3, 6, 9 or even 12 months. It’s up to you.

We’ll check in after 12 months to make sure you’re still liking the birth control you’re taking, but you can contact a clinician any time through your account. If you want to try a different birth control option, we’re here to help. And if you’d like to change, pause or cancel your subscription plan, you can do so with the press of a button.

What is contraception?

Hormonal contraception (or birth control) is a way for you to temporarily alter your reproductive cycle. The synthetic hormones in birth control are similar to actual hormones in your body, and keep it from going through the time-to-conceive process every month. All in all, they make becoming unexpectedly pregnant a lot less likely. Certain types of hormonal birth control also have the added benefit of reducing some of the uncomfortable symptoms you may get around your period, and can make your period lighter and more regular.

Hormonal birth control isn’t permanent. You can keep taking it indefinitely, switch methods or stop using it if you wish to have a child. Some types of hormonal birth control are better for specific health issues or age ranges, so it’s good to check in with a doctor every now and then to make sure your birth control is still right for you.

Hormonal contraception is only available by prescription in the UK. A prescriber will help you narrow down the best option because there are quite a few out there, and it’s not a one-size-fits-all deal.
