Birth control pills are prescription oral contraceptives that contain progestin and/or estrogen. There are multiple types of birth control pills, combination pills, progestin-only pills and extended cycle pills, each with varying amounts of hormones that prevent pregnancy.
Aubra is a daily birth control pill taken orally. If you take this pill at the same time every day following the guidance of your doctor, Aubra is more than 90% effective at preventing pregnancy. This is why many women turn to this pill option when they are not ready to have kids. This pill is not currently offered by Nurx™ but is still used by many women.
Aubra uses two hormones, progestin and estrogen, to regulate hormones and the menstrual cycle. This means that many women experience other benefits while on Aubra, like lightened periods and better hormone balance.
Nor-QD is prescribed primarily for women who experience issues with birth control pills containing estrogen. Because Nor-QD is a low-hormone pill, it may be suitable for women with a history of blood clots, high blood pressure, or migraines. Since Nor-QD contains no estrogen, it is also ideal for mothers who are breastfeeding. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Nor-QD at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
Jencycla is a once-a-day oral contraceptive that works by thickening the cervical mucus at the entrance to the uterus in order to keep sperm from passing through.
Because Jencycla is a progestin-only pill, it should not interfere with breastfeeding or affect milk production. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Jencycla at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
Heather is a progestin-only, once a day mini-pill. Heather does not contain estrogen, which makes it the ideal choice for women who are breastfeeding or have adverse reactions to estrogen birth control products. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Heather at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
There are no reminder tablets with Heather; you finish one pack and start the next. Heather does not prevent STDs.
Nordette a combination birth control pill containing two hormones — progestin and estrogen — that work together to prevent pregnancy. These hormones interrupt ovulation by preventing the release of an egg during the menstrual cycle, while also interrupting fertilization by making vaginal fluid thicker to prevent sperm from reaching an egg. Nordette also changes the lining of the uterus to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Nordette at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Levora for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
