FDA Approves the First Over-the-Counter Oral Contraceptive

On July 13, 2023, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first oral contraceptive available over-the-counter (OTC) to prevent pregnancy without age restrictions. Opill (norgestrel 0.075 mg tablets), a progestin-only contraceptive, is the first daily, oral contraceptive approved in the United States for use without a prescription. Opill's OTC approval will allow for consumer purchase at a variety of retail outlets, including drug stores, grocery stores, convenience stores, and online. Opill will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2024. Pricing information for Opill has not yet been released.
