Brown Glass Bottle
Enovid came in two doses, 10mg and 5mg. Like all pill prescriptions of the time, it was delivered in a small bottle. When the Food and Drug Administration approved it for birth control use in 1960, it had already been on the market for almost two years, as a treatment for menstrual irregularities.
