Choose from the patch, pill, ring or shot
Choosing your birth control is highly personal. With more than 100 generic and name brand birth control options, our healthcare providers can help you find the one that works for you. Get started.
The most widely used birth control method, the pill is most effective when taken regularly, every day. Besides preventing pregnancy, the pill can improve acne, reduce symptoms of PMS, and help make periods more regular, less painful, and lighter in flow.
Worn on the skin like a bandage, the patch is a great option for women who prefer not taking a daily pill. Each patch is kept on for a week, then replaced with a new one. After 3 weeks, you take a 1 week break for your period before putting on a new patch.
The most low maintenance birth control option, the ring is a small, flexible ring inserted into your vagina. The ring is worn for 3 weeks at a time. After 3 weeks, you take a 1 week break for your period before putting in a new ring.
You inject the birth control shot in your stomach or thigh area every 3 months. Because it doesn't contain estrogen, the shot is popular with women who have had negative side effects on estrogen-based birth control or are breastfeeding. It's also a good option if you have difficulty taking a daily pill.
Whether you already know which birth control you want or need expert advice on choosing the best option for your body and lifestyle, we can help. We offer 100+ birth control options, and our licensed medical providers are women’s health experts.
Anyone who requests a birth control prescription will be charged a $15 consultation fee. This includes unlimited messaging with our medical team about your birth control for one year so you can request prescription changes or ask questions, any time during that period. At this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee. Patients will need to complete a new annual consultation, including any related fees, when a prescription is up for renewal.
Please note that at this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee.
For those with health insurance, your prescription will be free in most cases as it will be covered by your health insurance. Insurance companies set the “copay” for prescriptions and depending on your plan and the prescription, this will usually be $0. Please connect with your insurance company if you would like to learn more about your copay. If you do have a copay, Nurx will authorize a $30 amount at checkout and it will only be charged if you have a copay. If your copay is over $30 you will receive a notification.
For those without insurance, Nurx offers birth control brands that start at $15 per month. If you’d like a price estimate for a specific brand or type of birth control, please connect with our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nurx offers free shipping for contraceptives, delivered by USPS via 1-3 day priority shipping or first class mail for some refill orders. No signature is required for delivery of birth control. The packaging is generally discreet, and there is no mention of Nurx or a pharmacy on the outside of the envelope.
We are proud to offer more than 100 types of birth control, including name brand and generic pills plus the patch, the shot, and the vaginal ring. We are happy to try to order specific brands if you request them as well.
Absolutely! If you have used Nurx to get a birth control prescription within the last 12 months, we can easily refill that medication for you. Once you message us, we may have a few health questions for you or recommend some other steps, but we’ll do our best to make sure you get what you need quickly.
If you have a birth control prescription from another doctor, please submit a new request for birth control at nurx.com. Our Nurx Medical Team will be able to better help you after you answer some basic health questions.
Nurx does not replace your primary care provider, but helps you avoid making multiple appointments by allowing you to access basic healthcare in a more convenient way. We encourage you to continue seeing your primary care provider, especially for annual checkups and urgent care.
If you’re unsure what type of birth control may work best for you, our medical providers will be able to recommend healthy options for you. Just answer a few questions to submit a request and our medical team will help you find the right birth control for you.
If your birth control has a generic option, we’d be happy to write that prescription for you. Generics are just as safe and effective as their brand counterparts. Most people don’t notice any difference between brand and generic medications. If you want to switch to a generic, please just message our Customer Care team and they will update your subscription.
We are doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and physician assistants who are passionate about providing patient care. The Nurx medical team believes that everyone deserves access to personalized, non-judgmental healthcare, and that open and honest communication is key. Learn more about our medical team.
