What is Kin Fertility Claiming to Offer?
“The contraceptive pill delivered to your door. Kin lets you ditch the in-person doctor’s appointment, without compromising quality healthcare”.
Kin is Australia's first contraceptive subscription service, assisting time-poor menstruators by connecting us with GP's and pharmacies, removing the hassle through a fully-online service.
A Kin annual membership is $55. This membership includes online doctor’s visits, consults with an Australian-based doctor and pharmacist, discrete delivery of the pill to your door, automatic script refills and access to a well-priced pill, with over thirty types available.
My Experience with Kin
I was shocked by the efficiency of Kin. I signed up on a Saturday morning at 8am. Signing up included a series of straightforward health questions including my medical history and my experiences with the contraceptive pill. By 11am I had a prescription emailed to me by my assigned doctor, I then purchased my pill (Estelle) which cost twenty bucks for a three month supply, by Tuesday the pill was on my doorstep. Essentially, you’re paying for convenience. For me, this means not inducing a festival of bleeding by pure consequence of forgetting to book my doctor’s appointment or fill out my script in a race against the uterine clock. Kin is a prime product for a specific audience. Kin is aimed at the time-poor and is an efficient and effective product with clear and consistent pricing, funky packaging and a progressive attitude. I will be enjoying many more years as a Kin member as I am allergic to wasting days off on doctor’s appointments, chemist queues and accidental organ shedding. However, it is a mildly pricey service in which you are primarily paying for delivery.
The Extra Bits:
What else was noteworthy?
It included a groovy casing for a blister pack of pills, some funky stickers and a lovely discrete purple box. I love having things delivered and the bit and bobs they include just make it a more fun surprise to come home to.
A series of journals exploring culture and women’s rights by Kin. From stories, musings, experiences and health pieces, it’s one of the few email subscriptions I genuinely enjoy in my inbox.
Kin has a range of health guides providing insight into fertility, menstruation and sexual health. Featuring topics ranging from egg freezing to self-isolation to maternity leave, Kin allows users to explore a range of research, it’s not the kind of thing I actively read about BUT each time I return to check my account I ALWAYS end up on an hour long deep-scroll and learn a heap of info I had never considered before about reproductive health.
