At Nurx, we believe women should be able to access their birth control on their own terms.

Last week, Mike Pence met with congressional Republicans, specifically about repealing the Affordable Care Act. He then tweeted, "We're going to keep our promise to the American people. Our 1st order of business will be to repeal & replace Obamacare." We're going to keep our promise to the American people.

World AIDS Day has been observed every year on December 1 since 1988. On this day, people worldwide unite in the fight against HIV and show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. This year on World AIDS Day, we at Nurx are launching our PrEP service and app in Washington, DC. According to CDC data, more than one million Americans are living with HIV, and more than 40,000 are newly diagnosed with HIV each year. In the nation's capital, the estimated rate of HIV diagnoses is 66.9 per every 100,000, which…

A plethora of barriers prevent women from accessing reproductive health services, but did you know that only 1 in 50 women have easy access to clinics that provide contraceptives in the U.S.? Even though 81 percent of Americans support women’s rights to access birth control, the right for women to obtain safe, affordable, and accessible health care is still attacked. On the surface, birth control seems easy to access with the Affordable Care Act requiring all insurance companies to cover FDA-approved contraception and several states allowing patients to get birth control from their pharmacist without a doctor’s prescription.  …

Shortly after being elected, President-elect Donald Trump promised to bring the country together and hinted that he might not dismantle the Affordable Care Act after all. Well, it appears that was short-lived. Earlier this week Trump selected Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), one of the ACA's most vocal critics, as his pick for the Health and Human Services secretary. By doing so, it appears that Trump most likely does intend to dismantle Obamacare. Price has led efforts to replace the Affordable Care Act and introduced bills which would not require insurance companies to accept people with preexisting conditions, increase Read More

Did you know there are birth control methods you can use to skip your period? Continuous birth control methods allow you to safely skip your period and not have to worry about your cycle, even if it’s regular. So, how does it work? Instead of taking your placebo pills the week of your period, you would just continue to take your active pills without a break. With confirmation from your doctor, you can most likely use your current oral contraceptive, however, not every pill is designed for continuous use. If this is the case, your doctor can prescribe Read More

This Thursday, December 1, is World AIDS Day. On this day, we remember those who have succumbed to AIDS, recognize those living with HIV and AIDS, and recommit ourselves to fighting for a world free of HIV. An estimated 2.1 million people worldwide become infected with HIV every year, with 37 million people living with HIV and AIDS. It doesn’t have to be this way. While eliminating HIV is a very complex problem, with strategies like TaSP (treatment as prevention) and PrEP, a global reduction in the number of new infections is a real possibility. Now, more than ever,…

Recently, Boxed.com announced that the company has lowered the prices of goods targeted at women, which are often priced higher the same or very similar products marketed to men. Last year, two major studies showed that often times, women pay more than men for many consumer goods. A Canadian study showed that women pay on average 43 percent more for toiletries and personal care products than men do, and a study in New York showed that women are paying seven percent more. Now, another organization has joined the fight to end unequal gender pricing. Asha Dahya, founder of Read More

What would you do if you were homeless and got your period? This question is what inspired Chelsea Vonchaz to create #HappyPeriod when she saw a homeless woman who was visibly on her cycle. After speaking with several shelters, Vonchaz learned that homeless and low-income women are most likely to get donations for toothbrushes and toilet paper, but not pads or tampons. It’s as if people forgot these women experience menstrual cycles as well. As stated on their website, “Our initiative supports everyone that has a monthly flow, including teenagers, nonbinary, and the LGBT community.” A few weeks Read More

Birth control is widely considered a female health issue since condoms and vasectomies are currently the only FDA-approved form of male birth control. Along with America’s lack of comprehensive sex education programs and the fact that only women are able to get pregnant, very often, men especially lack knowledge about women’s reproductive health and contraceptive methods. In order to get the inside scoop, BuzzFeed took to the streets of Hollywood to test men about their birth control knowledge. So, how much do guys know about birth control? The results were surprisingly mixed: some guys were really knowledgeable while Read More

According to a recent CDC study presented at Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI in 2016), if current trends of new HIV infections continue at the present rate, 1 in 2 African American and 1 in 4 Latino men who have sex with men will become infected with HIV at some point in their lives. Those odds are staggering. The CDC has aimed to address these numbers with their High Impact Prevention plan, which includes the utilization of Truvada for pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP. PrEP is a proven HIV prevention strategy, and according to the CDC as many…

A key goal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), has been to reduce the number of uninsured Americans. Since major provisions of the ACA went into effect in January 2014, the uninsured rate has dropped to the lowest rate in decades. President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to repeal the ACA when he takes office, while other times, he has stated that he would keep certain provisions of it. Below are six reasons why repealing the Affordable Care Act is a terrible idea. 1.) 24 million Americans will lose health insurance. Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was implemented, the…

Many people think that birth control is solely meant to prevent pregnancy. However, birth control has so many additional helpful tools to improve your daily life. Birth control can do wonders. Here are three OTHER reasons to use birth control: 1.) Regulate your period. Did you know you can control when you have your period or whether you have it at all? Birth control can allow you to never have your period again, or to always have your period every month and know when to expect it. You can also choose to have it 3-4 times per year and…
