My fiance wants to bring birth control pills with her on the  plane to America.  

She wants to bring a year supply,

but many people tell her she cannot bring that much.

 

Does anybody know for certain what the rules are?

See previous thread .... did like comment re ... that is a long flight ! 

http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/PostmarketDrugSafetyInformationforPatientsandProviders/ucm111085.htm  make sure it is on their list ....if generic drug note make-up "just in case"

 

flyertalk - same issue -different site - suggestion was:

 

She might want to see if her doctor would write something, in English, stating the quantities she will bring with her, and the necessity for those. I realize they're OTC, but her doctor should still be aware she is taking those, and should be willing to state that she will be bringing:

X number of OTC BCP for her personal use (daily dose, plus a few extra in case she loses one or has to stay longer in the US for some reason)

Y number of the morning after pill. This quantity should be enough to cover 1 or 2 incidents, based on how long her visit is.

The doctor can just say that she is taking them under his/her supervision. The letter should be on the doctor's letterhead, and should list contact information of the doctor.

I know it's ok, I brought a year supply of all my medicines, BC included. For good measure I attached to the medicine the prescriptions from my doctor (even though BC in my country doesn't need prescription, it looked respectable), but I don't think it's necessary.
