​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)
  • be taking a low-risk oral contraceptive pill for contraception purposes (to prevent unplanned pregnancy)
  • have taken the pill continuously for two years, as prescribed by a doctor (GP) or nurse practitioner

If you have run out of repeats or your prescription has expired and you meet the above criteria, you are eligible for resupply of the pill. 

​Not all oral contraceptive pills will be available.
