Do you remember a month ago when I started getting my birth control online through Nurx? It was awesome, but I had to quit. The future isn’t quite here.
My insurance shut me down.
Nurx delivers a monthly prescription of the birth control of your choice to your door. My health insurance also has a delivery service (that costs hella money) and prefers that birth control prescriptions be sent out in three month batches. I got a nice and only mildly terrifying letter asking me to have my prescription amended or they would no longer cover it. So, I’m on the same exact patch (haven’t died!) and now look like I’m stocking up birth control for the apocalypse. A month of patch boxes takes up a lot of space.
I still think Nurx is a great idea if you’re uninsured, because they have some cheap generic options available. Getting a prescription doesn’t make you miss half a day of work.
I also think they were great for me while I was between doctors, though I did get a very grumpy face from my new one when I told her that I was getting my prescription online.
Check the internet for coupon codes if you decide to use them! It looks like they typically give discounts as they get approved in new states, or when a politician tries to block birth control access. If you can’t find anything, my code for $20 off is still active: IVY-74G2.
