Objective: To describe reasons for and experiences with obtaining contraception from pharmacists. Study design: Cross-sectional survey. Results: Our sample included 426 women presenting for hormonal contraception (n = 150 pharmacist prescribers). The most common reasons women chose to obtain their contraception from a pharmacist were because no appointment was required (25%) or their prescription had lapsed (24%). Women receiving contraception from pharmacists were highly satisfied (95.3% vs 100.0%; p = 0.007). Women recalled similar side-effects counseling points regardless of prescriber type (p = 0.30). Conclusion: Women chose to obtain contraceptive care at the pharmacy because it was timely and convenient.
