I’ve never written an App Store review before, but this was worth the effort. This is truly a game changer for how we treat birth control.
Greatest app ever!! 5/5
This app is a life saver! After a horrible and traumatizing experience with my last gyno, a birth control prescription about to run out, and a medical condition that needs continuous birth control, I was panicking. I found this app and was hesitant at first and questioned if this was even legit. I submitted my info and didn’t expect anything to come back. I was amazed to hear back from a doctor and my insurance paid for it completely. I did however have to pay a small fee to use an out of nurx network pharmacy ($12 for a year prescription) my prescription was promptly filled and I now have a years worth of birth control pills I can take continuously (something my last gyno said my insurance wouldn’t cover) this app will help so many women! Thank you!!!
Not serving patients in certain states 1/5
They don’t serve patients in my state (KY)! But they do serve in Ohio and Indiana, so that was upsetting. Seemed like a super cool idea but I was extremely let down. Just don’t get your hopes up if you don’t live in one of the 17 states they actually ship to.
I was skeptical in trying this app because I didn't know if it would be convenient or beneficial for me but boy was I wrong. I did the whole thing where I placed my order and pick the birth control I wanted. One thing I should mention is that I did want a specific brand that my doctor had originally prescribed me and I really didn't feel like changing BC cause of how I may or may not react to it. Anyways I placed my order in advanced and it had been over a week before I finally messaged them asking what was taking so long. Apparently, the pharmacy has been out of stock with the specific brand I requested and they failed to tell me...so then they suggest that they could have my prescription sent to my local pharmacy... Are you kidding me?! If I had wanted that, I would've never bothered with trying to get it delivered from you guys ?! Ugh what got me was the lack of communication from them about not letting me know that my B.C. Is out of stock. That is something I would have liked to know so I can anticipate not taking my B.C. You guys are screwing people over by not communicating and your inability to actually deliver BC like your whole app is meant to do is such a failure. I would not recommend to anyone.
App won’t even open 1/5
I was so excited about this app. Finally downloaded it and all it asks for is my thumb print and then stays on that screen. I’ve tried deleting the app and re installing it but nothing works.
Needs Improvement 5/5
This is an amazing idea and I love it but the app is such a pain!! It crashes frequently and at this moment I can’t even get into the app to pay for the next prescription.
Aside from the technical issues, they give you a lot of information on different options and I haven’t had any other problems with it. I would vote 4 stars because of technical issues but I appreciate the app enough I don’t want to bring its rating down!
App doesn’t open 1/5
Does not move beyond initial loading screen.
The app does not load 2/5
I like Nurx and the concept of Nurx, and I’m extremely glad I can access it on a regular browser, because the app will not load at all. I’ve updated the app, reinstalled it, etc. and it the loading symbol just spins and spins. It does ask for my Touch ID but since I’ve never logged into the Nurx app before, that doesn’t help with logging in!
Needs update 02/11/2018 4/5
Won't even start please fix.
New Update 4/5
By The Real Jessiwhoo
Look, your services are awesome, A++ but this new update has made it unable for the app to load up. It just sits there for ages with the loading screen. Please fix ASAP
Does finish loading ever, never opens 1/5
By Arabic newbie 30
The website is great and I love the company. I hate the app. It never stops loading so the app never opens. I’ve deleted and redownloadws the app, forced quit and reopened the app, restarted my phone. Nothing works. Waste of space on my phone
So simple. 5/5
Wow. Thank goodness for this app! Support is awesome, service is awesome and I got a prescription for plan b in less than 6 hours. Can’t rate this high enough.
App is awful 1/5
I can’t even register. Bogus
It took 12 days 1/5
I like the concept of this app but the execution is poor. The FAQ states you'll get your bc in 3-5 days (though other sections say 2-4 and 72 hours so ???) It took me 8 business days (12 days total). A doctor didn't look at the request for three days and then it sat at the pharmacy for another few. They gave me the right brand but I don't get why it took so long. They need to be more up front about wait times if they're going to profit off of very time sensitive prescriptions. I don't think I'll be using this app again.
LOVE THIS APP 5/5
Honestly this app makes me so happy! Whoever created this is a great human so thank you! Their response time is ridiculously fast. I had some questions when I first started and the doctors responded very quickly. It’s very cost efficient, you don’t have to drive to the doctor or get those weird looks when you ask to be prescribed birth control. Refills are quick and easy. And most importantly the pills certainly work! I can’t describe how appreciative I am for this app!! It’s a life saver.
So easy! 5/5
By Poison Ivy 1989
So easy to navigate, and several ways to find a birth control for you!
Worked with my insurance, and my copay was $0. The doctor was really great at helping me find the right form of birth control for me, and my medical concerns. She was very knowledgeable and asked plenty of questions. Very satisfied.
This saved me an $80 copay at the doctors office as well. Highly recommended.
I already received 3 months of birth control in the mail. It did take a few days to work out which pill would be good for me, but I received the pill before my older prescription ran out, and got it in time to start it without a lapse.
Need a $20 credit use my referral code TINYBIRD-XQNR.
Poor response time 3/5
They need to respond quicker
Great company! TERRIBLE app 1/5
I would like to start this review by saying I’m talking about the app itself, not the desktop website nor the service, which are both great! This app is horrible! I’ve never used such a buggy app from the App Store before. For starters, it logs you out every time you exit the app. It’s a birth control app? Even my finance apps keep me logged in or at least keep my username. Secondly, chatting in the app is the worst experience I’ve ever had! This is not because of how slow they are to respond (which is due to the large amount of new customers and a growing company), but because I can’t see what I’m typing. Anytime I click the text box to type, the screen moves upwards and I can’t drag it back down to see my typing. The typing still works, but I have no idea if I made any spelling mistakes and cannot scroll down to reread what I typed. THIS IS A MAJOR ISSUE! Please fix this! It’s been this way for months now and is not acceptable in any app! It makes it extremely difficult to chat with the doctors and wastes their and my time (especially when it takes 5+ days for a response) if I send something that doesn’t make sense because I’m unable to read it!
Great app w/ a little room for improvement 4/5
I’m new to BC and thanks to Nurx I can get it easily and w/ my insurance. They do a good job. ONLY PROBLEM is communication! They’re a bit slow to respond to questions in the messages area. I hope they improve it, as if we have a question about the pill sometimes we need an answer faster than 4-5 days!
Amazing, Easy, Convenient Service 5/5
I used this service for the first time. I skeptical at first, but the process was extremely simple and easy! I would highly recommend! I have been on the same medication for 8 years and this was an incredibly simple way to have my prescription refilled. Within a week my prescription was shipped. Thank you for having this service available! I wish you would offer this for other recurring or maintenance prescriptions as well! I highly recommend women to use this service! This was billed through my insurance with no problems at all. Thank you again for offering this service!
Best app ever 5/5
It was easy and convenient to use. Sometimes you don’t have time to wait for Dr appointments to get on birth control. This was simple and you can talk with someone, if you ever have questions. Bravo Nurx!
Prescriptions aren’t $15 a month 2/5
Almost none of the pills are $15 a month which is misleading and disappointing. Mine was $60 a month which is pretty expensive. Also my questions were never answered and they never would reply to me. The only messengers received were new messages about another topic
Not worth the trouble! 1/5
I got the app because my employer's insurance doesn't prescribe birth control and this seemed like a great alternative. However, I began my refill order 2 weeks ago and it was supposed to have been here 3 days ago. I'm supposed to be taking my pack right now and it's nowhere to be found and I can't get anyone to respond from USPS or nurx. Birth control is a time sensitive medication and isn't something to mess around with. Not worth it at all.
I never write reviews but.. 5/5
By Jessica's ITunes Acc.
Ok I don’t think I’ve ever written an actual review for an app but I HAD TOOOOO!! This app is a GAME CHANGER! I’ve always been meaning to get birth control but having to make the doctors appointment and all of it was just not scooting itself in my school and work schedule sadly.. I found about this app I won’t even lie about a year ago? And I thought to myself wow.. what a great scam these people are hosting over here, then later now a year later I stumbled upon it again and I saw all these reviews and finally said you know what? What the heck let’s do this. First this app is EXTREMELY easy to use! Second they respond in less than 3 days to you and the whole process was actually very easy and stress free. And best part it WAS FREEEEE?!?!? I know it’s a steal. I totally recommend this for everyone who knows their daily lives are a bit hectic, this is a trip to the doctors and phracmacy you’re saving yourself a month! Don’t knock it till you try it :)
DO NOT TRUST!! 1/5
DO NOT TRUST THIS APP! They are thieves and a rip off! Save yourself the hassle and frustration, don't be fooled by the good (probably) fake reviews.
Told me conflicting stories about my bc 1/5
I had multiple people contact me about my refill in the SAME day. Each person told me something different (one about how I need to get a generic, one about how my prescription is cancelled, one how they need me to spend more money going to an actual pharmacy). And then they don't respond for days when I ask what is going on.
Best App Ever 5/5
There are a lot of women who will be so grateful and relieved once they download the app. It isn’t just the convenience — it’s the customer service too. Getting any medicine should be this stress-free.
Not everywhere 1/5
By Breana Olive
I was sooooo excited about this app. It seemed too good to be true. And it was. They don’t serve people in Arizona. If you are going to make a service like this, might as well make it available to EVERYONE. I won’t change my star rating till You make this available in my state.
So incredibly fast and easy! 5/5
All I can say is how incredibly impressed I am with this app. Thank you to the Nurx team! As a teacher, time is NOT something I have, let alone to be able to see my doctor for my birth control refill. This made the whole process so fast and easy, and my insurance covered it all! I will be recommending this to EVERYONE. It’s an absolute game changer!
THIS IS A SCAM 1/5
Don’t trust this company to deliver your birth control needs. They’ve stolen my insurance money for 6 months and I never received my birth control shipments. Every time I try to message them, they would dodge my messages. Funny because prior to me not receiving the shipments, they were really quick to respond. I trusted this company initially because it was fine for the first 6 months. Then the shipments started to magically “get lost in the mail” or only come with 1 pack when 3 packs were charged to my insurance. I have sent them numerous messages regarding this issue and I have yet to hear back. I probably won’t hear anything unless I threaten a law suit, Huh?
nurx: I’m a fan! 5/5
My Rx from my Dr expired and rather than going back into the office or having to call to ask him to refill it, I decided to try nurx. I made the request on Saturday giving myself a week to get my refill. It’s now Thursday and I got 3 months worth of BC in the mail today! And they sent me the exact BC I asked for; my local pharmacy was switching back and forth month to month between Mononessa and Femynor and I was not a fan of the latter. I couldn't be any more pleased with the app or this service! All the thumbs up 👍👏🙌
Such an awesome invention! 5/5
I’ve never written a review for an app before, but nurx is so great! I’ve tried a lot of different bc pills over the past 5 years and my gyno office has gotten tired of prescribing me different pills. Even tho that’s their job lol. But in order to avoid calling one more time, I decided to try nurx. I’m so glad I did. They have a lot of different pills to choose from and other methods of bc too. My gyno was pushing an IUD after I had tried a few pills and didn’t like any of them. I’m so glad I didn’t have to get an IUD, and that I found nurx!
Not as easy as it seems 1/5
The only positive to this app is that you do not have to physically go to a doctor. I set up my account over a week ago, still waiting for my prescription to be shipped. Even though it says 1-3 days. Also, they said I would get 3 months at a time, order says that I’m only receiving one pack. Also you do not know how much it will cost you until they actually ship it which could potentially be a lot of money. I would not recommend.
Amazing experience! 5/5
If I could rank this app with more than five stars, I would! It’s super easy to use, customer service is timely and helpful, and real doctors were available to answer all my questions.
Best thing EVER 5/5
I never even write reviews for apps, but I figured since this is truly the best thing I have found on the app store for women's health(besides other period apps). I started seeing a obgyn about 4 months ago for the extremely painful periods that I get every month. Though I told the doctor I wanted to try bc to see if it would help, she never returned my calls when I asked for her recommendations and took forever to schedule an appointment for me. So when I saw the advertisements for this on various social media I was thrilled! Not only is this app completely legitimate, but they also provide knowledgeable information about the pill you are prescribed as well as answering any question you may have. Even if the form of bc I am prescribed doesn't relieve my symptoms, I will still be using Nurx to try out other options of bc due to their caring nature and amazing doctors/staff. Keep up the good work Nurx!!!
Can’t Believe It! 5/5
Just got my BC delivered today so I’m finally reviewing now that the whole process is complete. I can’t believe I got birth control delivered to my door without seeing a doctor. Oh...and with no cost to me! I was a little uncertain if this app/process would work or not but the whole team has been responsive and informative. They use real doctors and real pharmacies. I love Nurx and will continue to get my BC through them!
App doesn’t work 1/5
They should have never switched from the website to solely app usage. I can’t even open the app, it continuously loads. Not worth it.
Won’t load 1/5
The App won’t load. It opens and shows the loading symbol but never makes it passed that screen. I placed an order last Friday and am trying to get an update on it/see if it’s shipped but I can’t even open the app (or the webpage for that matter)
LIFE SAVER but app bugs 4/5
I absolutely love this app, I’ve been using it for about 6 months but I was trying to get on the app because I had a question but the app won’t open!! can you guys fix this problem ASAP it’s kind of an emergency question!
Doesn't open. 1/5
I've tried downloading it 3-4 times and it never opens. Very annoying.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Chicago blackhawkette
I want to give this app a try and order BC, I’m in one of the qualifying states, but when I go to open the app, it just spins. I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled, tried using WiFi, and my data; nothing seems to work! Does anyone else have this issue?
Doesn’t open 1/5
Downloaded this app because I’m in a pinch to get birth control. I’ve heard good things about them but I tried downloading the latest version (which was updated a week ago) and I can’t get past the loading screen. It shows a loading circle and nurx above it.
I thought maybe I needed to update my phone to iOS 11 but that didn’t work either. So rating remains at 1 star. Hope they get this fixed soon. I really wanted to use their service.
App won’t work 1/5
The application won’t open. It just keeps loading and never opens.
THE BEST 5/5
By MK Johnson
This app is THE BEST. I’m a very forgetful person, so having BC come on subscription is so good for me. I also have a chronic illness and getting pregnant would be very dangerous for me - Nurx is actually saving my life. Customer service is amazing, quick, and kind. Highly recommend.
Game changer! 5/5
By Stina :-)
Nurx is reliable, informative, and affordable. I was able to order three months of the birth control of my choice within minutes. With it being so close to Christmas and the new year I haven’t had time to visit my doctor and this eliminated the anxiety of possibly running out and facing irregular cycles.
Great app and company 5/5
With my insurance my pills are shipped with no cost to me! Great customer service! They got back to me in a good timely manner and explained everything so well......deffinitely reccomend. Thank you for making my birth control more accessible!
Nurx is incredible! 5/5
I love this app so much. This is one thing that actually makes me optimistic for the future. Nurx is hands down the most efficient way to get birth control. I’m telling everyone I know about it!
So far so good!!! Tired of inconvenient doctors visits! Heard about this on a website and have it a go. I’m now awaiting my prescription. Love this idea.
Discount Code 5/5
use code DAWN-VX9C to get $20 of.
I can’t say enough about this 5/5
By Camlann _Avalon
I was initially skeptical, but after reading reviews, I decided to give it a try. My bc ran out a while ago and I haven’t had time to go get a Pap smear to get it refilled. I got the exact same bc as what I had been taking before. I do have insurance, and for whatever reason I would have a copay when I had them last time, but for a three months supply I paid 0. This is great for women who don’t have health insurance and therefore have trouble seeing a gyno to get bc prescribed. This is a life saver to many women out there!! Please don’t ever stop what you’re doing Nurx. You’re fantastic. My pills arrived within the week I ordered them. Nurx constantly kept me updated with my shipping. I will continue to use them.
