About the NSW Pharmacy Trial

​Eligible women can visit a participating pharmacy to get a resupply of their oral contraceptive pill (the pill) as part of the NSW Pharmacy Trial.

To receive a resupply of the pill you must be:

  • aged between 18 to 35 years (inclusive)
  • taking the pill for contraception purposes only (to prevent unplanned pregnancy)
  • prescribed a low-risk oral contraceptive pill in the last two years by a doctor (GP) or nurse practitioner. If you have run out of repeats, or your prescription (script) has expired but was issued in the last two years, you are still eligible. Not all oral contraceptive pills will be available.
