Lovely experience 5/5
They were so wonderful throughout the whole process. Even when I wanted to change the brand I chose last minute. I can’t recommend Nurx enough. Whether you have insurance or not; it is super affordable and shipping is free!!!!
Amazing service 5/5
Using NuRx was easy and convenient. The customer service was excellent and answered all my questions quickly. A doctor reviewed my request and sent information. This will save me so much time with the auto refills being sent. I recommend this app highly!
Sending orders to wrong address 1/5
Don’t use this. They will literally send your birth control to other peoples addresses and then say it your fault even though you informed them of an address change.
Very Impressed 5/5
Doctors visits are expensive and unnecessary—nurx seriously helped me out! My order was shipped punctually and when I plugged in my insurance information—my prescription was free! I recommended it to a friend and it was simple for her too! Definitely glad I decided to try it.
Skeptical at first, then blown away! 5/5
I came across an online ad for Nurx roughly 6 months ago, read every online source regarding it along with reviews and decided to see for myself what the hype was. Needless to say, it has been better than when I would go to my OBGYN! The online medical staff really paid close attention to what I was searching for, since the pills were on were only good for regulating my flow (which is why I was put on)— the cramps were unbelievable, the acne- terrible, and don’t get me started with the mood swings/depression! They took the time to evaluate my concerns and were very understanding to my situation as well as being open to other brand/options if one didn’t seem suitable for me. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. I thought I was going to have to take myself off BCP for good and just live with 2-3 periods a month— this team is just fantastic and I will continue to do business with them as long as they keep up the phenomenal job they’re doing!
What a sigh a relief ! 5/5
nurx is an amazing company . I recently lost my insurance and had trouble obtaining birth control due to cost . nurx is user friendly, fast and cost efficient. I wish I found this app earlier.
If you are wondering if you should pull the trigger and use nurx , do it !
The concept of this app is truly innovative and amazing. I heard about it on Facebook so I figured I’d give it a try. It was very simple and straight forward. It asked me simple questions concerning my health and offered different birth control pills, but I already knew which one I wanted. This app is so convenient personally for me because I do not have insurance. It costs me about $170 to just see my doctor to ask to be on the pill again. I was able to sign up through this app and pay $45 for 3 months worth of bc pills and it was delivered to me really fast. Thank you NURX!!
I never write reviews and I was really worried about this app because I thought it was too good to be true. But the process is so easy and fast ! I’ve been taking Trinessa and I also have no insurance. I had to pay 30$ every month for my prescription but I’m out of refills now and have no insurance to visit the doctor anymore. So I decided to check this out and it saved me money. Will be using this app for now on.
Bug! Please fix! 2/5
This app seems like a game changer, so I downloaded it and answered all the questions. I picked my birth control and everything, then chose to use my insurance and took a picture of my card. The issue was after I chose to use the photo the screen went blank. I closed the app and tried two more times same result. Please fix! Otherwise this app is useless to me.
This app is a real bro. 5/5
By irritated and bothered
No annoying doctors visits that cost $$$. Just answer questions about whether birth control is right for you and they go through your insurance to help cover costs. Or you can just pay out of pocket if you don’t have insurance (most are like $15 per pack). Honestly the best app ever. I’ve recommended it to ALL of my friends (I blasted this app on all my social media because power to the people) and 7 of my friends have joined so far.
They have pills, patch, ring, plan B and more. Like WHATS better than THIS????
Oh. My. Goodness. 5/5
I first heard about Nurx maybe 2 months ago and thought I’d give it a try since it’s difficult for me to get in to see a doctor with life getting in the way. I got a form of BC that ended up not working out for me so I decided to switch. The doctors I spoke with about my questions and concerns responded very quickly (within the hour) and they were so professional in a modern kind of way. The idea of all of this is just brilliant beyond belief!
Yesterday I signed up, typed in my info and selected the specific brand of pills I wanted. Less than 24 hours later the prescription is filled and on its way to my house, priority mail. The whole process was easy, fast and super inexpensive. I was paying twice this for my pills through a family planning provider that also required a hefty doctor fee, not to mention time off work to go to the appointment and pick up the pills and refills. This service is amazing!
If I could rate 0 stars, I would. 1/5
Don't even waste your time. After waiting a month to receive my birth control from Nurx, they messaged me they were out of stock. I paid $12 to have the prescription sent to my local pharmacy. After picking it up, my receipt showed I only have 4 refills. I messaged them asking why I did not have enough refills for the year. I was then informed they could only send me enough to last me 90 days. I already compromised and chose a birth control they carried since they didn't carry mine. When they were out of stock for the one I ordered, I paid $12 for the birth control (which again wasn't even the one I wanted originally). Now I'm being told that is only good for 90 days, and I'll have to pay out of pocket for future months. So they accepted my insurance for 3 months but not for the next 9 months? Sounds like a scam. Stay away.
DO NOT USE THIS APP 1/5
I got this app because it is practically impossible to get in to my gyno. I wanted birth control to help with cramps and regulate my period. Of course, I took their survey and answered all of their questions. They ended up prescribing me a pill. After 1 month of taking the pill, I started getting extremely sick, was bleeding(not really like a period) for over 12 days, and I was puking. When I went to them about my problems, they would not give me any information. All they said was that it takes time for the body to adjust. So I continued taking the pill throughout the second month and my problems continued getting worse. I messaged them again to ask if i should stop taking it or what I can do. The same doctor that prescribed my pill told me not to stop taking it without seeing a doctor (ironic right). On my own, I decided to stop taking the pill. Within 2 days, the bleeding stopped as well as me getting sick. I talked on the phone with my gyno office and told them what I was experiencing to see if I should be checked out. They asked what prescription I used and when I told them, they were amazed. They said someone my age should never have gotten a pill with that hormone dose. They also said if I had continued usage there could have been permanent consequences! Of course, I went directly to nurx and tried to cancel my prescription. Although in the processing stage where no card had been billed, they told me I wouldn’t be able to cancel until next time. The app specifically states that the order can be cancelled at anytime before billing. I WILL NEVER USE THIS APP AGAIN. 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Super slow customer service 1/5
They take ages to review your request for medication. I wish they responded on demand or called you to answer all the questions instead of taking one day to respond to every message. Because I’m not too sure if I want to do BC, this long wait usually makes me end up not getting them. After almost a year, I am trying to request BC again and I feel like I’ve been waiting for awhile even though the messaging has begun. Why do they take days to look at requests anyway? That’s the perfect way to lose customer interest. This app has lots of potentials but seems to need more staff.
LOVE LOVE LOVE 5/5
I’ve been using Nurx for 5 months now without a hitch. They make you input your card info, but they never charge without asking. Even though my copay is $0 I still get a text every 3 months asking if I want my shipment processed. They’re quick and efficient and really nice. I always HATED going to my doc just for a prescription bc it was soooo expensive. I’ve been on the same pill for 6 years so I knew exactly what to ask for. This app is AMAZING
This app changed my life 5/5
I have severe social anxiety and a PHOBIA of doctors, but I’ve forced myself to go for a silly appointment every year just to have my birth control prescribed. This app sounded almost too good to be true, but I’ve had the easiest, most effortless experience so far. It took about 5 minutes to enter my information and request my specific birth control. I received the correct pills FIVE days after initially signing up. Some doctors/pharmacies have messed up my BC prescription, but Nurx delivered the exact brand I needed, at no cost with my insurance, right away. I couldn’t be more thankful for an easy, time commitment free method of getting my BC. I would recommend Nurx to literally anyone that will listen!!
Love this app! 5/5
For a college student this app is awesome. It can be a little slow and a bit confusing at points but in the end it gets you your prescription in and on time. They answer messages pretty fast.
Highly recommend for someone who doesn’t have time to go to a doctor or who can’t get to one.
Only available for 18 states. 1/5
You don’t don’t live in;
California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, or Washington,
Like myself then this app will not work for you. Don’t waste your time.
Life just got easier !!! 5/5
I had no idea my birth control could a) be delivered to my door or b) be delivered so quickly. This app was very easy to learn how to use and incredibly helpful in selecting the right birth control for myself. I answered the same questions i would in the doctors office and messaged with a doctor about my concerns for the recommended methods until the dr and i decided on yaz. It was a simple and painless process. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
I’m currently awaiting delivery of my BC but so far this app has been awesome! My normal provider couldn’t be bothered to renew my pills before a holiday weekend and their office is closed on Tuesday so I was going from Sunday to Tuesday without pills. Maybe not a problem for some people but I take mine to skip periods due to severe dysmenorrhea. I put in a request for a prescription on Saturday of a holiday weekend and by Tuesday was told it was in the mail! Unfortunately I still have to have a period this month but the response time and convenience of them was worth it.
Doesn’t work 2/5
I don’t know if it’s a bug or what, but when I search for my BC and it asks me what state I’m in, it sends me to an error page. Was really hoping that this would work :(
Can it be in all states yet? Cause that would be great
Great app. Life changer. 5/5
I was skeptical at first but I ended up getting birth control that my insurance covers. No issues whatsoever. I have recommended to my friends due to my satisfaction.
I didn’t think getting birth control would be so easy. I’m so busy and I rarely have time to get to the doctors for anything. This took about two weeks from download to front door. Amazing, I love it!
Only took a few hours to get my BC! 5/5
I requested birth control at 11pm, and had birth control in hand by 5pm the next day! Such an easy seamless process and I’m very happy!
I’ve been using this app for about 4 months now and I honestly been having the best experience. I was a little skeptical in the beginning but once I began messaging with one of the doctors there, they began to give me options on what type of BC i should get. I got my BC ordered and shipped, I believe it took about a week in total to have my BC shipped and delivered. Overall I am happy with this app. I think the only one complaint that I have is that the app freezes most of the time. At first I thought it was my old phone but then I upgraded to the iPhone X and realized it was actually the app. Other than that, everything is good.
Attempts to stay true to its purpose, but... 4/5
I wanted to try this out to see if this was too good to be true. To start, do not expect this to be an easy process. It could be or it may be incredibly difficult. Here’s what I experienced:
#1 definitely call your insurance company first to find out which BCs are covered and which aren’t. Nurx won’t have this information. Once you’ve found out and compared which would be cheaper... next step
#2 submitting your form seems easy. 12-13 questions then a way to select the BC you want along with whether you want to go through insurance or POP.
This is where I had THE most difficulty. My insurance covered my BC so ultimately I could have just gotten it through them, but that would require going to a doctor in person, etc. (I don’t have that time). My prescription was declined through NURX twice!! Even after confirming that my insurance was approving it, so WHY IS IT BEING DECLINED. Turns out the pharmacy they use in my state doesn’t “use” my insurance so the pharmacy declined it. (Mind you, there’s no information of this and i had to call nurx 4-5 times, not including already having called back my insurance 4-5 times as well). To say I was annoyed is putting it mildly.
The only saving grace in this was when I got in touch with Sela, a nurx rep, who ultimately waived the $12 fee they would usually charge for sending it to a local pharmacy instead. If this hadn’t happened, I would be giving this service/app a 1-2 stars. All in all, the nurx reps are great. They seem to understand and empathize with how annoying the process can be and I did get my 3 month supply from my local pharmacy for free.
Tread lightly and be weary when giving this a try. If you come across road blocks, I warned you.
Easy to begin, but there are caveats 2/5
I used this because I’m on state insurance and getting in to see a doctor is pretty much a battle in itself. The initial set-up was easy, but they failed to tell me my current birth control (which I use for painful periods) wasn’t in their list, and after two days of them telling me it’s getting filled, I am now being told I can either pay $12 for a random local pharmacy to fill it or cancel my service. Currently trying to cancel and then set up for a different brand.
Easy to get, difficult to end. 3/5
By Elyse De
I have to say the process for setting up Nurx was pretty simple and straight forward. I felt the service itself was pretty good. I loved never having to remember to refill or get to pharmacy on time. HOWEVER, I have been trying to
Cancel my subscription for weeks and keep getting refills sent to my house no matter what I try. I’ve contacted them three times and I’m still getting notifications about my refill and today, a delivery! Pretty annoying!
Was Skeptical But WOW 5/5
I had a prescription that was given by my doctor at Kaiser and had just began 2 months before I had to change my insurance. My new doctor didn’t have available appointments until 2 months from now and I can’t go without my BC for 2 whole months so I tried this app and they work waaay faster than expected. They sent me a message when my order was in, when the pharmacy was preparing it, when it was shipped, and when it was delivered (which took literally a day). I got 3 month supply and it was so simple because they give you exactly what you’re looking for and have better options if you’d want to change. Def. recommend.
Very easy 5/5
I have to say, I was really skeptical about this app, however, it worked out really well. As long as you know what you want and have your information, all you have to do is upload it. I started the process on Monday and it was delivered on Saturday. Super happy I don’t have to spend a bunch of money on doctors visits until I get some decent health insurance.
Really convenient service 4/5
I am truly grateful for this service, once I was set up with my prescription I have not even had to think about it since. It refills automatically, it’s through my insurance, and ships at an honestly impressive speed - for me 2 days I’m not sure if that’s the norm. Overall I’m really happy it helps me stay on track with my medication
Wish it were available everywhere 5/5
Happy to be living in California right now - would be great if this were available throughout North America!
Who knew you would be able to get BC without going for an invasive pelvic exam. My OBGYN was holding my BC hostage until I came in for an exam and shelled out another $200. Thank goodness for this app, I had my BC in less than a week, so easy to use.
I’ve never written a review before until now. 5/5
Total game changer. Love it
Doesn’t really make anything easier which I thought was the point 2/5
So, my care provider is a hostage care provider who refused to refill my bc prescription unless I paid for a bunch of unnecessary services. I had to cancel the appointment to start with because I couldn’t afford to go. I have an ovarian cyst and pmdd so I really need my birth control. It keeps me from bleeding constantly(I bled for a solid 2 months prior to being put on birth control because of the cyst) and it helps my emotions be manageable. Well, after she refused to refill my prescription, I tried this hoping it would help. It took them a week to even have customer service review it and now they’re telling me it’s going to take another 2-3 weeks to even receive my bc and that’s if they approve it. I feel so stressed and honestly abandoned by the healthcare system. This app is not helping me. It’s not timely or efficient. It’s great that they want to provide a service for women but honestly they have a long long way to go. It feels like I’m dealing with a trial version on an app instead of a fully developed service. At this point I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. So I guess thanks for being just as difficult as the hostage care providers you claim you’re better than.
Seems okay 4/5
By Eva Pierce
Placed an order on Monday and it’s already out for delivery and if it’s the right birth control then this app is a life saver kus I definitely need it!
Just when I thought it wasn’t possible! 5/5
By Christinee <3
After running out of refills I didn’t think that I have any other alternatives but this is definitely a game changer !!!!! I don’t really do reviews but this is a must :)
Game changer! 5/5
This app is amazing. It shows you how much better life can be with easy access to birth control! Unfortunately since I’m employed by a major pharmacy chain I can’t use the delivery option as a part of my insurance. However, just being able to get the prescriptions sent to my pharmacy without the hassle of trying to squeeze in a doctor’s visit for something I’ve been taking for almost ten years is wonderful! Great customer service, great app. I’ve been recommending to every woman I know!
Good concept, poor execution 2/5
I needed assistance with my order and it would take days to get a response.
Finally I just called up my actual doctor and he sent the prescription to the pharmacy and it was ready to pick up in an hour.
I really wanted to support this app because I know not everyone has those options but they need to figure out a better way to communicate
Great concept, but staff speed needs to improve 3/5
First of all, I seriously love this concept. The fact that you don’t have to go to the doctor? Awesome! However, it takes them FOREVER to get back to you. If they can get it together and get faster at replying and putting in orders, than this would be revolutionary.
I was skeptical of this app because of the bad reviews, I wasn’t sure if it was going to work or be legitimate. I was surprisingly happy! I got a three month supply and am super excited about the rest of the year they are autoshipping! I am definitely recommending this app to everyone.
This is the most helpful app I have ever used. It is easy to navigate. The staff you chat with are polite and succinct. If one kind of birth control doesn’t work for you, it’s so easy to let them know and have them send you another one. I love it!! I’ve told all my friends.
I can’t believe how seamless this process was. In less than a week after downloading the app for the first time, I had my first three month supply delivered to my door, completely free and processed through my insurance. Being a woman can be a hormonal nightmare and adding any level of convenience to dealing with such is honestly priceless. Thank you Nurx and your incredible team!
Super Easy! 4/5
Had to write a comment about my fave app lately. It saves your time and life! First of all, if you know what you gonna have, it’s so easy! But if you don’t, your questions will be answered. I knew what I wanted to have so all I did was requesting my pills, uploading my insurance card and other info. What I couldn’t believe is my insurance covered pills with $0 copay and Nurx didn’t charge anything else! Even shipping! I didn’t pay anything. Package came with all the info I need. Not giving 5 because...I requested pills on April 3rd and got them on 16th. It took a little bit long, so I recommend you request your pills 2 weeks in advance before your period starts. Otherwise, it’s an amazing service!
I love this app !
I was quite skeptical at first but for convenience I figured I would give it a shot. I was very impressed. My order was reviewed within 24 hours. I also had put a note to the doctor that I wanted something free of charge with my insurance. They followed my instructions and 4 days later I received my 3 month supply. Happy to learn that they also offer PrEP! Very impressed and will share this with everyone I know!
YAZ AND YAZMIN HAVE BEEN RECALLED 1/5
I’ve seen many commercials of these two birth controls causing internal bleeding and death. I don’t think this is the most trusted birth control app
In love 5/5
In love with this app!! The prices they get you for the pills are always great, free shipping that always arrives within schedule!!! I had to suspend my account for one month and had no issues, had a billing issue and they solved it right away too! Their service is amazing and their customer service is also excellent. Definitely never going back to pharmacies!
