  • You can find many birth control pills in Indonesian pharmacies (or "apotek" in Indonesian). Some brands you can expect to see are Levonorgestrel Pill, Microgynon, Microgynon-30 and Nordette. To conduct a search on drug availability, check out the MIMS website.
  • You can find condoms ("kondoms" in Indonesian) in many supermarkets and grocery stores. However, some Indonesians feel shy about buying condoms in public, so there are also online companies where you can buy condoms from the privacy of your own home. For example, here are some online vendors based out of Indonesia. There is also a company called Asmaraku, which sells condoms and other intimate products online for Indonesians. You can find brands like Vivo, Simplex and Dasoni sold on Asmaraku, ranging in price from about RP 35,000 to 5,000 per box. The website supposedly also sells vibrating condoms. For a survey of some of the condom choices in Indonesia, here's an amusing article.
  • It appears that the contraceptive ring, like Nuvaring, is not available in Indonesia (though we'll need to research this more but to be certain).
  • For local recommendations on places to get contraception, please visit the city pages, such as the Jakarta or Ubud pages.
  • You can also consult the Indonesian Planned Parenthood Association (IPPA) for family planning services and advice. Address: Kebayoran Baru, 12120. Tel: (021) 720 7372 / (021) 739 4123 / (021) 724 5905.
