Oral Contraceptives Policy


Policy for Oral Contraceptive Prescriptions

Sonlight Pediatrics and Family Medicine 

Oral contraceptives (birth control pills) are an important part of your healthcare and we are happy to help you with that. It is our policy that all females on oral contraceptives are required to have a yearly physical exam in our office. At this time, your physician will renew your prescription for your oral contraceptives. (Prescriptions are usually written with 12 months of refills.)

PLEASE NOTE: A yearly exam is required for renewal of oral contraceptive prescriptions. There is a one-time one month grace period. Please schedule your yearly physical exam with our office 2-3 months in advance. We recommend making a reminder note on your calendar 3 months before the appointment is needed.

Thank you!
