Birth Control Pills


Azurette is a combination hormone birth control pill that when taken correctly is highly effective at preventing pregnancy. Azurette contains two hormones, progestin desogestrel) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol), that regulate your menstrual cycle.

In addition to helping prevent pregnancy, Azurette also has a number of positive side effects. It can make your periods lighter, less painful, and more regular, treat acne, and decrease your risk for ovarian cysts.


Aranelle is a tri-phasic birth control pill. Its two active ingredients are synthetic versions of estrogen and progesterone, the hormones in your body that regulate your period. It is a tri-phasic pill because each pack contains three different kinds of pills with differing hormone levels.

Aranelle may also have some positive side effects: It can lead to more regular, lighter, and less painful periods, and clear up acne.

Zovia 1/50

Zovia 1/50 is a hormone-based birth control pill that contains estrogen and progestin. These hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping the release of an egg during ovulation. This medication also changes the cervical mucus and lining to avoid conception.


Zenchent is a hormone-based birth control pill that avoids pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg. It also thickens the vaginal fluids which make it harder for fertilization to occur. Here at Nurx™, we often recommend Zenchent for its ability to treat acne and painful mensural disorders. Zenchent does contain estrogen so if you are allergic or have had a poor reaction to it before, one of our healthcare professionals will be happy to help you find an alternative medication.


Zarah is a combination-type birth control pill that avoids pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg. The pill also thickens the vaginal fluids to prevent fertilization. Zarah does much more than prevent pregnancy. It can also help regulate your periods, make them less painful, and decrease your occurrence of ovarian cysts.
