The Stride of Pride Will Only Take You to Your Front Door With This Pill Delivery Service
Sponsored by Youly
Let’s face it: talking to a doctor or pharmacist about your sexual health has to be one of the most awkward conversations you can have. While you’d ideally like to share every detail about your symptoms or situation with them so you can get the best possible prescription or treatment, when you’re actually sitting in the doctor’s office or standing at the pharmacy counter, you more often than not find yourself unable to open up.
What if they judge you? Or start grilling you on what you did or didn’t do, and make you feel really bad? Or, even worse, what if they grill you and everyone in the line behind you hears? It’s shudder-worthy, to say the least.
Enter Youly. Designed to be a (much needed) refreshing approach to health care, Youly is an online health platform that eliminates all those in-person, cringe-y chats by letting you text a doctor or pharmacist and then get your prescription or treatment delivered straight to your door instead. It’s fast. It’s convenient. And, most importantly, considering you never know who you’ll run into at the doctor’s or leaving the pharmacy, it’s discreet.
So, how exactly does it work?
Firstly, you’ll need to complete a detailed online assessment. Those intimate details you felt too ashamed to share? Forget risking the chance you might get prescribed the wrong thing because you weren’t totally honest and outline every gory symptom or embarrassing part of your situation here. After all, the more information the doctor or pharmacist has, the better.
Next, an Aussie doctor or pharmacist will hop into the system within 24 hours to review your responses. Then, if they need more info, they’ll reach out to you via text with their questions.
And finally, you’ll pay for your treatment and then wait patiently for it to show up at your door a few days later — or, in the case of the morning-after pill and provided you live in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra
or the Sunshine Coast, within two hours of your order. (New locations for the morning-pill, two-hour service are being added weekly. All other products are shipped nationwide.) Oh, and if it’s a repeat prescription, you’ll get it continually sent to you in the mail. And if it’s an existing script you’re looking to fill, you can upload it at no extra cost and get it sent to you at pharmacy prices. The icing on the cake? All deliveries are sent in Australia Post packages so your neighbours and housemates will have no idea what you’ve ordered. Talk about health care that’s hassle-free.
What kind of womens’ health treatments does Youly offer?
In a nutshell, quite a few with contraception delivery being what it’s best known for. Which is pretty great considering you might not even know what your issue is. Youly treats cold sores, thrush and genital herpes, and offers emergency contraception (it’s Australia’s first morning-after pill delivery service) and subscriptions to the NuvaRing and the contraceptive pill, which you can cancel at any time.
How can I trust that I’m getting the right treatment?
Good question! Youly uses Aussie-only GPs and pharmacists that not only have years of experience, but are also extremely passionate about women’s health. Each patient is assessed on an individual basis and if the doctor or pharmacist determines it unsafe for you to receive a specific prescription or treatment, it won’t be issued to you. If that’s the case, however, they’ll provide you with some recommendations on next steps, which might be visiting another GP in-person for a further assessment. Your membership will be fully refunded (for prescription-based treatments). So yes, you can definitely rest assured that with Youly, you’re definitely in safe hands.
