Question:
My girlfriend wants to get some birth controll pills, are they by perscription in Russia as they are in the states?
Inventor
Answer:
Dear Inventor,
Thank you for your inquiry. In some cases, if someone knows the Russian equivalent of a birth control pill that is currently taken, these can be bought at some pharmacies without prescription. From a western medical perspective, we do not recommend simply going to a pharmacy to birth control pills especially if they are a first start. Birth control pills are a medication that requires monitoring, and can have potential harmful sideffects if given to the wrong patient. For this reason, she should have a proper initial exam first before starting them. We hope this information is helpful to you.
