How Is Low-Ogestrel Used?
Low-Ogestrel is a combination pill that is taken orally to avoid pregnancy. It works by preventing the ovary from releasing an egg. It also changes the cervical mucus and uterine lining to make it harder for sperm to reach the uterus. The dosage of Low-Ogestrel will begin when you take one tablet daily at the same time each day. You will continue this dosage for 21 days until you swap to the peach tablets for seven days. These inert tabs do not contain any estrogen or progestin and are meant to be a reminder.
Is Low-Ogestrel Easily Available?
You can purchase Low-Ogestrel at almost any pharmacy with a prescription. If you need a prescription, Nurx can help you get one. We are partnered with physicians in every state that can help you get a prescription. Working with Nurx, you receive the same quality care that you would at your doctor's office, without the inconvenience.

Nurx accepts many of the largest insurance providers. Low-Ogestrel is a generic drug, so if you do not have health insurance, you will enjoy the affordable prices that Nurx offers.
What Precautions Should I Take With Low-Ogestrel?
It is always recommended that you talk with your healthcare provider before taking a new birth control medication. A physician can identify any health risks that you should be aware of. In general, there is little risk involved with low-estrogen birth control treatments, including Low-Ogestrel. You should avoid taking Low-Ogestrel if you have a history of blood clots, stroke, breast cancer, or heart attack. Although unlikely, birth control medications can increase the risk of these health conditions. Always be aware of any symptoms that might indicate an allergic reaction to Low-Ogestrel including rashes, swelling, or itching.
Can I Take Low-Ogestrel With Other Medications?
It is always advisable to discuss your current medications with a Nurx professional before taking any form of birth control, including Low-Ogestrel. Certain interactions can prevent Low-Ogestrel's ability to prevent pregnancy. Additionally, some prescriptions and over-the-counter medications can increase your risk of side effects. You should avoid using Low-Ogestrel with acetaminophen, Vitamin C, antibiotics, seizure medications, barbiturates, and HIV medications.
