Combination Pill

Combination birth control pills are oral contraceptives that contain estrogen and 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.

Asumate

Asumate is a daily oral contraceptive that regulates menstrual flow while preventing pregnancy. In layman’s terms, Asumate is a daily birth control pill. With Asumate, patients take the pill for 21 days and then take a seven-day break during their regular menstrual flow. This is similar to most pills, where patients take 21 active and seven inactive pills, except Asumate does not provide the inactive placebo pills.

Asumate may be a good option for women who do not want to take the seven placebo pills that typically come with birth control packets. It is also a good option for women who are able to remember to start taking active tablets after the inactive period.

Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Asumate at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Amethia-Lo for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $45 without insurance.

Pimtrea

Pimtrea is a combination oral contraceptive tablet that contains the hormones estrogen and progestin. Pimtrea is designed to prevent pregnancy by working mainly to stop ovulation. If ovulation happens to take place, Pimtrea works to prevent fertilization by thickening vaginal fluid to make it harder for sperm to reach an egg. Pimtrea stops implantation of a fertilized egg by creating changes to the uterine wall so fertilized eggs can’t attach.  Fertilized eggs that don’t attach are passed out of the body.

Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Pimtrea at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Azurette for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance. Contact us to discuss your options and to help you choose the right oral contraceptive for you.

Kimidess

Kimidess is a once-daily oral contraceptive that prevents ovulation, fertilization, and implantation. A Kimidess kit contains 28 color-coded tablets with the majority of tablets consisting of the female hormones progestin and estrogen. This combination acts to stop the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation) and prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization). Kimidess does this by thickening vaginal mucus to impede the progress of sperm. Kimidess also creates changes to the lining of the uterus so that fertilized eggs can’t attach to the uterine wall. Fertilized eggs are passed out of the body if they don’t attach.

Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Kimidess at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Azurette for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

Ashlyna

Ashlyna is a daily birth control pill that follows a three month (90-day cycle). This is different from most birth control pills, which only follow a monthly flow. With Ashlyna, instead of taking seven inactive pills after 21 days of active pills (so you have a normal period), you will take 84 days of pills followed by seven days of sugar pills. This makes your period seasonal, something that only happens once every three months, rather than a monthly occurrence.

Ashlyna is an ideal birth control option for women who suffer from PMDD or who have excessively heavy and severe periods. Many women take this pill as a way to control their periods along with pregnancy prevention.

Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Ashlyna at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Amethia for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $45 without insurance.

Daysee

Daysee is a combination, extended-cycle oral contraceptive that protects against pregnancy and works to inhibit ovulation. Daysee contains the female hormones estrogen and progestin and comes packaged in a kit with instructions for proper dosage of the 91 tablets.

Daysee mainly works to prevent ovulation by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). Combination oral contraceptives also work to prevent fertilization by thickening vaginal fluid to make it hard for sperm to reach an egg. Implantation is prevented when Daysee creates changes to the lining of the uterus to make it difficult for an egg to attach to the uterine wall.

Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Daysee at special request, or we can offer the generic equivalent Amethia for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $45 without insurance. Contact us to discuss all your contraceptive options.
