Birth Control Pills


Mono-Linyah is a once-daily oral contraceptive containing progestin and estrogen that prevents ovulation and pregnancy. Because Mono-Linyah is a combination pill, it can be an effective acne treatment. At this time, Nurx™ does not carry Mono-Linyah.


Mili is a combination pill containing the hormones progestin and estrogen. Combination pills not only prevent ovulation and pregnancy, but they can also prevent acne. At this time, Nurx ™ does not carry Mili.


Femynor is a combination, once-daily tablet containing the hormones estrogen and progestin. Femynor consists of 21 active pills and seven inactive pills that may contain different doses of hormones, so it’s important to take it at the same time and in the correct order. At this time, Nurx™ does not carry Femynor.


Ladies who are looking for a combination daily birth control pill can consider Kurvelo as one of their top options. This is a daily pill with 21 active doses and seven inactive doses. The seven placebo doses are meant to mimic the traditional menstrual cycle, so many women who take Kurvelo will still get a monthly period during this last week. Kurvelo is not offered by Nurx™, but learning about this form of birth control can help you make the best decisions for you.


Chateal is a daily birth control pill that uses a progestin and estrogen to prevent pregnancy. While not offered by Nurx™, it is a pill used by many women. Women who use Chateal will take one pill per day by mouth for 28 days before starting a new pack. The last seven days of the birth control pill packet are placebo pills, meant to reinforce the habit of taking a daily pill even if they aren’t doing anything. Some women skip taking these placebo pills altogether.
