Product details

Levonorgestrel-ethinyl estradiol is a combination pill containing the hormones estrogen and progestin that work together to guard against pregnancy. This hormone combination prevents ovulation and fertilization by causing changes to the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. These changes make it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and for fertilized eggs to attach to the uterine wall. Levonorgestrel-ethinyl estradiol is prescribed in varying doses. Nurx carries Amethia, which contains levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol in 0.15 mg and 0.03 mg doses, for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $45 without insurance and the generic Lutera in the lower dose levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol of  0.1 mg and 0.02 m, for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
