Ortho Evra

If you don’t like taking a daily pill, try the patch instead! Ortho Evra is a transdermal contraceptive patch (meaning a patch that goes on your skin) that you wear for three weeks. You can place it on your arm, back, stomach, or butt, and it will release hormones over the course of three weeks. At the end of that time, you remove the patch for a week before replacing it with a new one. For maximum effectiveness, instructions must be followed closely.

Our team at Nurx can prescribe Ortho Evra at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Xulane for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $180/three patches without insurance.


Get in control of your reproductive health with Xulane, a combination birth control patch. Forget daily dosing: Apply and change the Xulane patch each week for 3 weeks, then go patch-free for the 4th week. The patch works by giving off hormones that prevent your ovaries from releasing eggs.
