Many online pharmacies have emerged. Some specialty fertility pharmacies sell a large portion their medications online and many of the larger pharmacies have their own comprehensive websites as well. Since just about anyone can set up a website, it is critical you use only reputable and safe online pharmacies. A good pharmacy website should be located in the U.S., have a licensed pharmacist available to answer your questions, require prescriptions from your doctor, provide access to a customer service representative 24/7, and have a VIPPS Seal of Approval indicating they abide by strict standards and are a National Boards of Pharmacy Verified Internet Pharmacy.
Online pharmacies can be both convenient and cost-effective. You simply submit your prescription and your medications are sent directly to your door (usually overnight and sometimes even with free shipping). Always check and make sure you have easy access to a pharmacist who understands fertility medications in case any issues come up. There might also be hidden costs: some online pharmacies will charge you a fee to join their services or for extras like syringes and sharps containers. Always read the fine print and know what you can expect.
