Birth Control Pills

Seasonale

Seasonale is a combination-style birth control pill that uses a blend of two hormones, estrogen and progestin, to simulate pregnancy in your body so that actual pregnancy won’t happen. This tried-and-true strategy is used by most forms of birth control pills and is proven effective. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, Seasonale won’t be right for you.

Our team at Nurx can prescribe Seasonale at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Setlakin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $45 without insurance. Feel free to check out more FAQs below, review our list of generic alternatives, and talk to our team to learn how you can get your birth control delivered.

Safyral

Safyral is a birth control pill that uses two hormones, progestin and estrogen — what’s known as a combination-style pill. The hormones simulate pregnancy in your body so you don’t actually become pregnant. This is a common strategy of birth control pills, but the vitamin B folate is what makes this one unique and a top choice here. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a family history of blood clots should seek a different option for their birth control needs. At this time Nurx does not offer Safyral, but our medical team can help you find the best birth control for you.

Ovral

If you’ve experienced spotting or breakthrough bleeding when taking other birth control pills, or if you experience especially heavy periods, Ovral may be the solution. It contains doses of hormones that are higher than many other brands, allowing you to take control of your cycle and get some much-needed relief! Ovral is not for you if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a family history of blood clots. Our experts can help you decide if Ovral is your best choice.

Ovral is a combination-style birth control pill that uses two hormones, estrogen and progestin, to trick your body into thinking it’s already pregnant. That way, a true pregnancy won’t occur. Ovral provides a consistent and steady dose of hormones and works well for women who are used to taking birth control pills. At this time Nurx does not offer Ovral, but our medical team can help you find the birth control that’s right for you.

Ovcon-35

Ovcon-35 is a tried-and-true monophasic birth control pill. It provides a steady and consistent dose of hormones that are high enough to combat issues like spotting or breakthrough bleeding, while still low enough to prevent most side effects. There is, as with most birth control pills, a slight chance of potential risks, including increased risk for stroke and heart attack. However, if you do well with birth control in general, Ovcon-35 is a good choice for you.

Our team at Nurx can prescribe Ovcon-35 at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Balziva for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance. Feel free to check out more FAQs below, review our list of generic alternatives, and talk to our team to learn how you can get your first pack.

 

Ortho-Novum 10/11

Take control of your periods! With this daily pill, you can prevent pregnancy while lightening your period symptoms. Ortho-Novum 10/11 is a daily birth control pill with a 28-day cycle. The first 21 days include active medication, while the remaining seven have inactive compounds. You still take pills for the full 28-day cycle to reinforce the habit and minimize the risk of getting pregnant.

At this time Nurx does not offer Ortho-Novum 10/11, but our medical team can help you find the best birth control for you.  So check out our list of generic alternatives below and learn how you can get your first pack, or read more about this drug in the FAQs below.
