Where can I buy Nordette contraceptive pills?

If you're thinking about beginning this birth control pill, you've got a few choices on where to get it. It's worth noting that, similar to other contraceptives, you can't just buy it over the counter. To buy the Nordette pill, you'll need a valid prescription from a licensed medical doctor.

The tablet Nordette can be purchased at three places:

  • Online Services(e.g. Through Get My Pill)
  • Private pharmacy/Clinics
  • Government clinics


Using Online Services to buy the contraceptive pill

Through online contraceptive and family planning services like Get My Pill you can purchase both your prescription for the oral contraceptive pill and have your medication delivered to your door without having to leave your home.

You can even schedule a telephonic consultation with a medical doctor at Get My Pill if you're concerned that Nordette may not be the right pill for you.

How to get your pill delivered

  • With delivery: You will purchase your medications directly from our delivery partner, Clicks Pharmacy through their EFT option (after paying our prescription fee, details will be sent via email). Medical aid is also accepted to cover your medication.
  • Without delivery: If you prefer not to have your medication delivered you can order your prescription only and use it to purchase your medication at any local pharmacy near you.


South African Pharmacies

In order to start using the birth control pill you are required to have a valid prescription. The prescription can be issued by a doctor, dispensing nurse, or dispensing pharmacist. You may be able to receive your birth control pills immediately during your appointment, or you will receive a prescription that can be used to purchase your pills from a pharmacy.


Government Clinics

The third method to get oral contraceptive medication is through the government clinic. There is no fee for the consultation or medication as long as you are a SA citizen but be aware, the waiting time can be extremely long. It might take you several weeks to get an appointment and a whole day to receive the medication.




The price of Nordette pills at Dischem?

The price range for a pack of Nordette pills at Dis-Chem pharmacy is usually between R 113.65 and R 191.95.

But remember, this is only an estimated cost. Finding the exact price of the pill online (or any other prescription medication) is nearly impossible because rules set by the government don't allow prescription medication prices to be advertised on the internet.

The price of Nordette pills at Clicks?

You can expect the price of Nordette pills at Clicks Pharmacy to be around R 113.65 to R 191.95.


What sets apart telehealth services from scheduling an appointment with a doctor?

Doctor's appointments require you to go in person, which means traveling and setting aside time for it.

On the other hand, telehealth services let you easily talk to doctors from home or wherever you have the internet. They can speed up access to medical advice, reduce waiting, and be a cheaper option for minor health problems.

For instance, services like Get My Pill have licensed medical experts who can prescribe your birth control online safely. They use a secure online form, and private virtual consultations, and deliver your medication to your doorstep. It's a way to avoid the hassles of visiting a doctor for no reason.
