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.
Women who can’t tolerate estrogen often turn to progestin-only pills such as Errin. Errin prevents pregnancy by thickening the vaginal fluid and changing the uterine lining so that it’s difficult for sperm to reach the egg and a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. About half of the women who take Errin stop ovulating. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
Camila is a mini-pill that prevents pregnancy using a form of progestin known as norethindrone. This hormone thickens the vaginal fluid so that it’s more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg. It also changes the lining of the uterus so that an egg, if fertilized, would have trouble attaching to the uterus. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Camila at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
