Whether you’ve heard of Nurx or not, I’m here to give you an honest Nurx review. I’m here today with some LIFE CHANGING information. Seriously, y’all better listen up.
Ok, so I’m a twenty-something-year-old woman, and, bear with me, it’s gonna get a little personal in this post. I’ve had issues with my reproductive health, so my first year of college, I decided to explore my options for birth control.
Now, I don’t know about you, but the student health center at my university was pretty awful. There was a long wait for appointments (even if you’re super sick) and even then, the care was pretty sub-par (I had a doctor try to illegitimize my well-researched reasons for needing medication, not cool).
Not only is it a hassle to go and even GET A FREAKIN’ APPOINTMENT, getting any sort of prescription medication requires a thorough checkup and eventually, you have to physically leave your house to pick up your prescription at your local pharmacy.
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU that there was a way to BYPASS literally all of what I just said?
Nurx, pronounced “Nu-arr-ex,” is a healthcare startup aiming to provide better, easier access to birth control pills. With Nurx, all you have to do is set up an account and fill out basic health info like your height and weight. You also need to know your blood pressure (my local CVS has a machine that takes your blood pressure for free!). Once you enter your basic information, you’re matched to a doctor. Your doctor will then make a choice as to what pill you’ll get based on your info and preferences. Then, if you have insurance, the cost is covered, but if you don’t, it’s $15 per month. That’s waaaay cheaper than the $95 CVS has tried to charge me! It sounded too good to be true to me. I didn’t really believe that something so arduous could suddenly be THAT SIMPLE.
But then, my friends, I tried it.
And it WORKS!
Each step takes a few days to process, and I did have to leave my house to get my blood pressure measured, but as soon as you receive a notification saying your medication has shipped, it will arrive at your door the NEXT DAY. That’s right, ONE DAY SHIPPING!
So basically, I had no reason to go to my student health center or CVS ever again thanks to Nurx. It’s totally life changing and I’m still in disbelief that it’s even real. If this sounds like your jam, you can sign up using my referral code HAPPYDAY-3XG2 for $20 0ff!
Nurx is currently available in CA, DC, FL, IL, MA, MI, MO, MN, NJ, NY, PA, TX, VA, and WA but they are looking to expand to more states soon! I hope one day that getting any prescription can be as easy as Nurx makes it. If you have any questions about Nurx, let me know in the comments!
