Progestin Only Pill (Mini Pill)

The minipill, also known as the progestin-only birth control pill (POP), is an oral contraceptive that contains the hormone progestin.

Norlyroc

Norlyroc is a progestin-only oral contraceptive often referred to as the mini pill. These single hormone contraceptives are ideal for women with sensitivity to medications containing estrogen. Norlyroc works to stop ovulation about half the time and causes changes to the lining of the uterus. Norlyroc thickens cervical mucus to impede the movement of sperm and interrupts fertilization. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Norlyroc at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

Deblitane

Deblitane is an oral contraceptive that contains only progestin and no estrogen. These oral contraceptives are commonly called POP (progestin-only pills) or the mini pill. The mini pill works to interfere with fertilization by thickening vaginal fluid and preventing attachment of an egg. Deblitane changes the lining of the uterus to make it more difficult for a fertilized egg to attach. Deblitane stops the release of an egg (ovulation) approximately 50% of the time. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Deblitane at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

Nor-QD

Nor-QD is prescribed primarily for women who experience issues with birth control pills containing estrogen. Because Nor-QD is a low-hormone pill, it may be suitable for women with a history of blood clots, high blood pressure, or migraines. Since Nor-QD contains no estrogen, it is also ideal for mothers who are breastfeeding. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Nor-QD at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

Jencycla

Jencycla is a once-a-day oral contraceptive that works by thickening the cervical mucus at the entrance to the uterus in order to keep sperm from passing through.

Because Jencycla is a progestin-only pill, it should not interfere with breastfeeding or affect milk production. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Jencycla at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

Heather

Heather is a progestin-only, once a day mini-pill. Heather does not contain estrogen, which makes it the ideal choice for women who are breastfeeding or have adverse reactions to estrogen birth control products. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Heather at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Errin for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

There are no reminder tablets with Heather; you finish one pack and start the next. Heather does not prevent STDs.
