Nortrel 7/7/7 is a combination birth control pill that uses progestin and estrogen to prevent pregnancy. The color of the pill corresponds to a specific time during your menstrual cycle, which means the dosage of progestin in the pills varies. This is to make sure your body has more hormones during the times you’re more likely to get pregnant. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Nortrel 7/7/7 for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $25 without insurance.

How Does Nortrel 7/7/7 Work?
You'll receive 28 pills and take one per day — 21 of them will be active pills with hormones, while 7 of them will be inactive and without hormones. Because the different colored pills have varying strengths of progestin, it's important to take them regularly and in the correct order.
Where Can I Buy Nortrel 7/7/7?
Nortrel 7/7/7 is available by prescription at most pharmacies across the U.S. You'll want to check with your insurance provider to see if it's covered. But if it isn't, don't worry! Our experts here at Nurx™ can help you find affordable birth control that works for you. We can also enroll you in an automatic renewal plan that delivers medicine discreetly to your door, so you'll never have to worry about forgetting to pick up your prescription again.
What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Nortrel 7/7/7?
Nortrel 7/7/7 may contain products that can cause an allergic reaction, so talk to your doctor or one of our professionals here at Nurx™ before you start taking it. Some of those allergies include itching, swelling of the hands and feet, and a rash. Also be sure to mention if you're allergic to estrogen, as that's one of the main ingredients.
Keep a list of the products you use (supplements, over-the-counter medicine, other prescriptions, and even recreational drugs) to share with your medical provider during each consultation. Being honest and proactive about your health is one of the most important steps you can take.
What Are Some Side Effects?
Unfortunately, the risk of side effects is a normal part of taking any medication. The good news is that combination birth control pills don't usually cause severe side effects in patients. More common ones are headaches, bloating, breast tenderness, vomiting, and fluid retention. Those symptoms may be more prevalent during the first few months of taking the medication. If your symptoms don't go away or get worse, check in with your doctor or our professionals at Nurx™.
Even though they're rare, some serious side effects to watch out for are severe stomach/abdominal pain, lumps in your breasts, depression, sudden dizziness, or vision problems. These are signs to contact your doctor immediately.
Nortrel 7/7/7 can potentially raise your blood pressure and sugar levels, so check those regularly if you have a history of diabetes or hypertension.
Does Nortrel 7/7/7 Interact With Any Other Drugs?
HIV, hepatitis C, and some cancer medications will interact with hormonal birth control pills, so do not take them together. More common medicines that may have a reaction with Nortrel 7/7/7 are acetaminophen (Tylenol), antibiotics for infection (some penicillins), anxiety medication (like diazepam or temazepam), and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). This isn't a complete list, so always tell your doctor what medicines you're taking before starting something new. Even though interactions are not guaranteed to occur, it's in your best interest for the professionals to have the necessary information before they prescribe medication.
Does Nortrel 7/7/7 Stop My Period?
No, it won't stop your period, but it should make it lighter and more regular. Nortrel 7/7/7 is designed for your period to begin once you start taking the inactive pills, so you'll still have one every month. If you're looking for something that makes your period more seasonal, you may want to try an extended-cycle pill like Seasonique.
Does Nortrel 7/7/7 Treat Acne?
It isn't specifically for acne, but one of the great side effects is that it tends to clear up your breakouts. The hormones lessen the secretion of oil on your face, which can prevent pimples from forming. Like any medication, Nortrel 7/7/7 won't produce the same side effects in everyone, so we can't guarantee that your acne will get better.
Does Nortrel 7/7/7 Protect Me Against STDs?
No, Nortrel 7/7/7 will not prevent STDs, STIs, or infection from HIV. Please take the proper precautions to protect yourself and your partner from those diseases.
