In brief: Yes.
Frequently a doctor doesn't need to do a pelvic exam before prescribing the pill.
Occasionally it is important. Sometimes an ultrasound can be substituted instead of an exam.

In brief: Depends on variables
There are many over the counter products that need no exam or prescription.
There is also good reason for pelvic exam and disease screening in anyone that is sexually active. The issue should be discussed with the office staff of the location you use.
