Thanks to This Company, You Can Get Birth Control Without a Doctor’s Visit

How many times have you found yourself out of birth control without a backup pack at the ready? Too many to count? You’re not the only one. Fortunately, there’s a company that’s taking the hassle out of female contraception. Meet Nurx.

Their mission is to make everyday health care needs—essentials like birth control, PrEP for HIV prevention, home HPV tests and more—affordable and accessible for everyone. More specifically, they aim to deliver on three things they believe every person needs in terms of health care: choice, control and freedom. Gone are the days of being blindsided by unexpected costs, judgy doctors or pharmacists, long waits for appointments and other health care woes.

How Does It Work? 

You’ll start by answering a few easy health questions so the Nurx medical professionals can prescribe what’s right for your body. After that, your prescription will be delivered right to your door in less than a week (and in discreet packaging because, you know, privacy). Plus, you’ll get a three-month supply and automatic refills so you’ll never have to wonder if you’re set for the upcoming months.

Oof, This Sounds Pretty Expensive. 

Actually, it’s quite the opposite. You’ll only have to pay a flat rate of $12 for Nurx medical providers to review your information (and this cost covers a year of unlimited consultations). If you have health insurance, you’ll get your birth control for free (seriously); without insurance, prices start at only $15. In addition to those already-low costs, you don’t even have to pay a delivery fee to get one of the 50+ brands of contraception Nurx offers.


Here are a few testimonials from real women who have relied on Nurx’s affordable and convenient service:

“It’s completely changed my quality of life. The customer support team is incredibly helpful. Every time I have a question, like if I’m getting weird symptoms, I always hear back right away.” —Ileana

“I had just moved, and when you move, all sorts of stressful things come into play, including birth control. Before I knew it, it was time to get back on the pill, but my prescription had expired. Thanks to Nurx, getting a new prescription wasn’t as complicated as I thought it was going to be.” —Melina

“I was in the middle of changing my medical insurance and I was without a doctor or coverage right when my birth control pill was running out. If I hadn’t found Nurx, I would have missed my pill and risked the chance of pregnancy. So grateful you exist!” —Jilian
