Product details

Yaz and its generic counterparts are some of the most popular birth control pills on the market. But when it comes to birth control, one size does not fit all.

Yaz was developed primarily to prevent unwanted pregnancy. The FDA has also approved Yaz to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder — a severe form of PMS. Women who are at least 14 years old might also use Yaz to treat mild cases of acne. 

While Yaz has a lot in common with other combination birth control pills, it also has some key differences. Yaz only has 4 placebo pill days, resulting in shorter periods for those who take it. Yaz, like some other birth control pills, may also help prevent excessive bleeding or the development of ovarian cysts.

Our team at Nurx cannot prescribe and deliver Yaz, but can offer the generic equivalent Nikki for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance. The generic version of Yaz has the exact same active ingredients and costs less when you are paying out-of-pocket.

What should women know about Yaz? Our medical team often gets the following questions about it.
