Chewable Birth Control Pill, Is This For Real?

Always forget to take your birth control pill? Or maybe you're one of those people who just can't swallow a pill?


Introducing Femcon Fe ($44 wholesale but who knows how much the pharmacies will actually sell it for), which is an option for women who would rather chew their birth control. The chewable tablet, which is aimed at women who occasionally forget to take their pills, contains the same hormones as standard oral contraceptives. The only difference is that you need to drink 8 ounces of water with it. The spearmint-flavored tablet can also be swallowed without chewing.

I am not sure as to why exactly chewing instead of swallowing would help us remember to take our pills, but maybe it will work for some women.

This sounds like a commercial but ask your doctor if Femcon Fe is right for you.
