Refilling prescriptions is a pain. But now, refilling your birth control is easy! You may be familiar with Glow, a period tracking app. Glow is already loved by people who menstruate thanks to its helpful health tips, its period and ovulation tracker and its lack of pink and flowers compared to its competitors. Now, Glow is stepping up their game even more.
Glow has partnered with Walgreen’s and Duane Reade to allow you to refill your birth control prescription right on your phone. If you’ve previously told Glow that you use a birth control pill, it will know to ask you if you would like to refill your prescription. When Glow reminds you that your period is approaching, it will also ask if you are interested in refilling your prescription with Walgreen’s. Glow will fill the prescription at the nearest Walgreen’s or Duane Reade free of charge. Simply scan the specific type of birth control you use and Glow will do the rest of the work. This new ability will make it even easier to you to ensure that you’ll never miss a dose of birth control.
Glow’s mission to make periods a little easier is one we can get on board with! Now all you’ll have to remember is actually going to pick your birth control up. For those of us who hate the phone and making awkward chat with your local pharmacist, Glow’s new ability is heaven sent. This is sure to make reproductive planning easier and more reliable. You won’t have to worry about forgetting to refill your pills and then missing a few days of your birth control. Anything that makes your period less of a hassle is welcome, and Glow and Walgreen’s move has certainly done that!
