  • Great app but needs updating

    By kmann76
    Please update your list! There’s new stuff out there, and I use this app all the time to guide my decisions on which pill to give.
  • New interface is great

    By Kappavgk
    I've always found this app to be a fast pocket resource. The redesign has made it more attractive and, more importantly, easier to use.
  • Please update

    By Lisalou54
    GREAT APP but as a gynecologist who prescribes oral contraceptives daily please please update this. I feel that generic OCPs are added to the market so frequently it would be wonderful to have this periodically updated.
  • Great Resource

    By GuzzyRon
    As someone who prescribes OCPs for women, I find this to be a great reference tool. It gives you the brand & generic names, phasing, cycle and equivalent pills. You can also arrange by estrogen dose, progestin type etc. They also threw in a contraceptive efficacy chart. My only complaints however, are that the app has not been updated since 2011, which makes me wonder if the information is up to date. Also, the interface needs to be updated and optimized to keep up with current technology. The interface looks like one that was designed for iPhone 3 (certainly not optimized for 6-plus that I’m using).
  • Good app but don't buy if you wrk n canada

    I was so excited & bought this app. In their first info paragraph they state 'ocps in the US.'. Kickn myself. The ocp i need to find an equivalent isn't listed. Plz add Canadian meds. Iwork n both countries.
  • Great!!!

    I'm a public health nurse and this has helped me a lot! It would be great to have other forms of birth control (depo, nuva ring, nexplanon, etc). Overall, this is great!
  • Just what I needed!

    I'm an ob/gyn and have been looking for an app just like this. This provides comprehensive info on OCPs in an easy-to-use format. Things I like: The thorough list of generic/equivalent pills (for all those times a patient asks for a pills just like .....) and the efficacy chart that will be great for counseling patients.
  • Good App for OCP

    By SarahMaria5280
    There are so many birth control pills on the market. This app provides great information only about OCPs. There is a handy chart for contraceptive methods' effectiveness. The chart lists methods other than birth control pills (i.e. Depo, Patch, NuvaRing, IUDs). Perhaps this app could be expanded to include other contraceptive methods since many women use methods other than OCP. A reference tool that includes other methods besides "the pill" would make this a 5 star app!
