Birth Control Questions?

  • How much does birth control from Nurx cost?


    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

    Please note that at this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee.

  • How is birth control from Nurx shipped?

    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.

  • What types of birth control does Nurx offer?

    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.

  • Can I get a refill of my existing birth control through Nurx?

    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 Our Nurx Medical Team will be able to better help you after you answer some basic health questions.

  • Does Nurx replace my primary care provider?

    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.

  • I don't know what birth control to order. Can Nurx help me choose?

    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.

  • Can Nurx help me switch to the generic version of my medication?

    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.
