In light of the coronavirus pandemic, access to healthcare is more important than ever. That’s why the launch of Pandia Health in Atlanta is exciting for anyone looking for birth control. According to co-founder and CEO of Pandia Health, Sophia Yen, Pandia Health is the only doctor-led, women-founded and women-led birth control delivery company.

“Anyone in Atlanta, and [all of ] Georgia, with a birth control pill prescription can use our free delivery service,” said Yen. “If you need a prescription, you can use our birth control expert doctors for just $20 once a year. You get unlimited follow-ups for one year.”

This is good news in a time when going to the doctor can feel unsafe and paying for medical care is difficult for many. Plus, Pandia Health eliminates the need for a trip to the pharmacy, which can cut down on potential illness exposures.

“We want to make sure no one runs out of birth control on our watch,” said Yen. “We are providing cutting edge, evidence-based care, convenience and confidentiality. "

According to Yen, one of the most common reasons for missed birth control pills is running out. Pandia Health has free delivery, automatic refills and annual reminders to see your prescriber to make it easier to stay on track.

“We’re also educating people that birth control is used for things other than birth control, such as painful period cramps, so much bleeding that you get anemia, acne, PCOS, endometriosis and more,” said Yen. “As the only doctor-led company in birth control delivery, Pandia Health will always share what’s best for your health, even if it doesn’t help our bottom line.”
