Planned Parenthood Direct: Birth Control now from your phone 

With the Planned Parenthood Direct app, it's now quick and convenient to use your mobile device to access quality healthcare. 

*Planned Parenthood Direct is now accepting Medicaid in Minnesota 

Planned Parenthood Direct Birth Control Refills

Getting Started

If you get a birth control prescription through the app, the pills will be shipped directly to your in-state address.

Birth Control Refills

If your birth control prescription includes refills, you can manage your refills directly in the app. The app allows you to confirm refills, update your shipping address, and add or update payment information.

Automatic Refills

In your initial request, you can order a minimum 3-month supply of birth control pills and sign up for automatic refills for up to a year. If your birth control shipment is a 6-month supply, you can also get auto refills on your prescription for up to a year.

Pharmacy Refills

If your prescription was sent to a pharmacy, do not use the app to request birth control refill. Instead, please contact the pharmacy directly for any and all refill requests.



Planned Parenthood Direct Payment Options

Payment on the app is simple. We do not accept insurance in Planned Parenthood Direct, so costs are paid out-of-pocket. We accept most credit, debit, and prepaid cards.

If you live in Minnesota, you can use Medicaid to pay for birth control pills. You cannot use Medicaid to pay for any other Planned Parenthood Direct services. 

What can I do on the Planned Parenthood Direct App?

Birth Control 

After a clinician has reviewed your medical history,  your birth control will be mailed to the address you provided in the app. In select states you may request a prescription to be picked up at your pharmacy. 

Emergency Contraception

In select states, you can request a prescription for emergency contraception to be mailed to you. We offer a version of the pill, ella®—85% effective on any day you take it, up to five days after unprotected sex.

UTI Service

You can get a UTI diagnosis and request medication for UTI treatment through the app. (Only available in Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota.)
