Combination Pill

Combination birth control pills, are oral contraceptives that contain estrogen and a progestin. Combination pills keep your ovaries from releasing an egg. They also cause changes in the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg.


Larissia is a contraceptive tablet taken by mouth at the same time every day to prevent pregnancy. Larissia is a combination of the hormones progestin and estrogen, which work together to prevent ovulation and fertilization. This hormone combination also serves to treat acne and can treat endometriosis. Right now, Nurx™ does not carry Larissia.


Falmina, not offered by Nurx™, is a combination birth control pill that women take daily to prevent pregnancy. A combination pill means that the medication uses both a progestin and an estrogen. Each packet contains 21 days’ worth of active medication and seven pills that serve as placebos. The placebo week helps you maintain regular periods while keeping you in the habit of taking a daily pill. While you do not need to take the placebo pills, it is essential that you take one active pill daily during the 21-day cycle.


Delyla is a daily birth control pill that uses a combination of progestin and estrogen. The packet of Delyla that you will use comes with 21 active pills that contain these two hormones, along with seven inactive pills. The inactive pills allow you to maintain a regular menstrual flow while keeping you in the habit of taking birth control daily. While Delyla is not currently offered by Nurx™, we offer similar combination pills that you may want to use.

Delyla is primarily a birth control pill. However, patients may experience other benefits like lighter, shorter periods, lessened cramps, and fewer premenstrual symptoms.


Previfem is an oral contraceptive made of two hormones — estrogen and progestin — that work together to prevent pregnancy. Previfem prevents ovulation (release of an egg) while thickening the vaginal fluid to make it more difficult for fertilized eggs to attach to the uterus.

Previfem is highly effective when it is taken at the same time each day in a continuous cycle of active and inactive tablets. Right now, Nurx™ does not carry Previfem.


Estarylla is a once-daily oral contraceptive containing the combined hormones of progestin and estrogen. These hormones work together to prevent ovulation and to interfere with fertilization, which helps to prevent pregnancy. Right now, Nurx™ does not carry Estarylla.
