Who would have thought that the day would actually come where you can have emergency contraception delivered to your door within two hours?!
Well, it’s now available to women who live in London.
Not only do they save themselves time by having it delivered, they can avoid the embarrassment of the face-to-face questioning at the chemist.
Thanks to DrEd, an online medical practice, and Shutl, the internet start-up that delivers what you want, women can now order the morning-after pill online and have it delivered to their front door in the time it takes to watch a chick flick.
DrEd’s founder, Amit Khutti, said “Our new service is helping patients get the most effective treatment possible. Clinically, emergency contraception works best the sooner it is taken. Also, our service negates the embarrassment that people often report when having to get the morning after pill in person. We’re also taking every effort to protect young people and avoid misuse. If the service is a success then we plan to roll out to other UK cities in due course.”
To protect minors, the service can only be used by those with a credit card and the online questionnaire screens to determine the applicant is of the appropriate age.
Commenting on the partnership, Tom Allason, CEO and founder of Shutl said “We’re delighted to be working with DrEd to make healthcare more accessible. In particular, we are excited to see another business develop a highly compelling proposition on top of our platform and enabling delivery of what customers want, when they want it.”
What do you think of this? Would you consider using it?
