Brook Randal, a doctor who works for Nurx and with Whole Women's Health in Texas, told Daily Mail there has been a history to this confusion, originating from when birth control was first approved.

"In the 60s, when [birth control pills] first came out, there was some confusion about how they worked. And when it was first approved by the FDA, the regulators hedged themselves by saying 'nobody understands precisely how drugs work, even penicillin.' Not longer after, it became clear that we do know how these drugs work. But conservative groups who are opposed to even condoms have used that phrasing to defend their views," Randal said.  

Despite the hesitation, plenty of women are applauding Nurx and its innovative approach for easier accessibility to birth control.

For those without health insurance, the affordable app offers birth control for as low as $15 per month, while users with health insurance can get the birth control for free in most cases. There is no cost for consultation or standard shipping.
