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.
Levlite is a combination pill containing two hormones — estrogen and progestin. Levlite works to prevent ovulation by inhibiting the release of the egg. Levlite prevents fertilization by thickening cervical mucus to prohibit sperm from reaching the egg. Levlite changes the lining of the uterus to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. Fertilized eggs that do not attach are passed out of the body. At this time, Nurx ™ does not carry Levlite.
Lessina is a combination pill containing both estrogen and progestin and is taken by mouth. Because Lessina is a combination of hormones, it is important to take the pill at the same time every day and in the correct order. The combination of levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol makes Lessina an effective acne fighter. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Lessina at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Lutera for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
Gianvi is a combination pill that is designed to prevent pregnancy and contains the hormones progestin and estrogen. Gianvi packs of 28-day tablets contain 24 light pink tablets and four inert white tablets.
Gianvi mainly works by preventing the release of an egg and preventing the attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus. Gianvi thickens vaginal fluid to help prevent sperm from reaching the egg. This medication may also be used to treat PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) and moderate acne. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Gianvi at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Nikki for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance.
Enpresse is a hormonal birth control pill that is highly effective at preventing pregnancy when used correctly. It contains two hormones, progestin and estrogen, that regulate your menstrual cycles.
Enpresse also has positive side effects. It can make your period lighter, less painful, and more regular, decrease your risk of ovarian cysts, and can help clear up acne. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Enpresse at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Trivora for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
Caziant is a hormonal birth control pill that is highly effective at preventing pregnancy when it is taken correctly. It contains progestin and estrogen, the two hormones that help regulate your period.
In addition to helping prevent pregnancy, Caziant also has a number of other benefits. It can help treat acne, decrease the risk of ovarian cysts, and make your periods less painful, lighter, and more regular. At this time, Nurx does not offer Caziant.
