Ask LIU! Buying birth control pills in Gran Canaria

If you need to purchase birth control pills in Gran Canaria, you can easily do so at most pharmacies on the island. In Spain, you do not need a prescription to purchase birth control pills, so you can simply walk into a pharmacy and ask for them. It is important to note that while most pharmacies will have them in stock, the specific brand you use may not be available. It’s always best to bring enough of your preferred brand with you to cover your entire trip, but if you need to purchase more while you’re there, you should be able to find a suitable alternative. Our community members confirm this as well.

Where can I buy birth control pills in Gran Canaria?

You should be able to get in any pharmacy, I’ve moved around the island quite a lot and never had issues with buying them in the small local pharmacy’s as well as the larger ones in the town centres.
