How Can I Choose a Safe Online Pharmacy?
It seems like anything is available online these days—with a couple quick clicks of the mouse, you can have everything from clothing to electronics delivered right to your door a few days later. Plus, there are entire websites dedicated to getting you your over-the-counter supplements as easily as possible. But what about your fertility drugs? Is it okay to order them online as well?
If you’re considering ordering fertility drugs through an online pharmacy, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. First, remember that anyone can start a website. That means before you order fertility drugs from the Internet, you need to do a little research. Be sure that the pharmacy you are considering has a VIPPS Seal of Approval (which indicates they follow strict standards) and is a National Boards of Pharmacy Verified Internet Pharmacy.
Some red flags to watch out for: Be wary of pharmacies that aren’t based in the U.S., don’t require a prescription from a doctor, and don’t have a licensed pharmacist available to answer your questions.
If you choose a reputable online pharmacy, you may save both money and time. But if you still have any questions regarding the legitimacy of an online pharmacy, check with your fertility doctor.
