Pandia Health Review

Why We Like Them

Over 19 million women* in the United States between the ages 13-44 do not have access to pharmacy or healthcare facility that offers a comprehensive range of birth control options.

To make the situation even more alarming, a large number of women who are on birth control, whether it be the birth control, pill., patch or ring, face serious financial or transportation problems making it difficult for them to get to the pharmacy or clinic every month to get their prescription filled. Thankfully there is a solution – Pandia Health – the only founded and led by women in the field of birth control delivery.

Today we will be taking a closer look at Pandia Health., its background, how it works, its benefits and more.
