Groupon Deal! Rx birth control, medical consult & free shipping!

Birth control pills. They make life (and sex) easier but you need to remember to take them consistently for them to be effective. What happens when you run out because you didn't have a chance to get a refill? Something's going to be different in the bedroom. It's great to change it up but an unplanned pregnancy may not be what you had in mind. 

A better option is to buy prescription birth control online from Mint Pharmacy and get your prescription delivered right to your door. No worries!

Getting back to birth control being easy. Easy to use, doesn't necessarily mean simple to choose. There are so many options and it's not like deciding between chocolate or vanilla. Depending on your age, medical history and lifestyle, some birth control pills may be better suited for you than others. Let's take a look at how oral contraceptives work and the different types of prescription birth control pills available.

The basics: According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), birth control pills are 91% effective when taken as recommended. One month of birth control pills may contain 21 or 28 pills. 

What hormones are in birth control pills?

Birth control pills contain synthetic versions of the sex hormones progesterone and estrogen. In their synthetic form the hormones prevent pregnancy rather than support it. These synthetic hormones are called progestins and estrogens. 

Types of progestins include norethindrone, norethindrone acetate, ethynodiol, desogestrel, norgestrel, norgestimate, drospirenone. Ethinyl estradiol is the only synthetic estrogen used in birth control pills.

Combination birth control pills vs progestin-only pills

Birth control pills that do not contain estrogen are called progestin-only pills or POP and also the mini-pill. Combination birth control pills contain a combination of a progestin and an estrogen.

Norethindrone .35mg is a progestin-only birth control choice available in this offer. Other names for norethindrone .35mg are Lyza, Heather, Sharobel, Deblitane, Camila, Nora-be, Norlyda, Errin, Jolivette, Jencycla, Micronor, and Nor-qd.

POP pills are considered a safer choice for women

  • With a history of breast cancer
  • Who are over 35 and smoke
  • Who experience uncomfortable side effects with estrogen

Most birth control pills contain 30 micrograms (.03 milligrams) or less of estrogen. They are often described as "low-dose" because earlier versions of birth control pills contained up to 50 micrograms (.05 milligrams) of estrogen.

Ultra-low-dose birth control pills have .02mg (20mcg) of estrogen or less. They may be good options for women who have had side effects with the higher dose birth control pills. 

Ultra-low-dose birth control pills in this Groupon offer

Generic Yaz, also known as drospirenone eth estra, Gianvi, Vestura, Nikki and Loryna.

Generic Alesse, also known as levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, Aviane, Lutera, Vienva and Falmina.

Generic Microgestin Fe 1/20, also known as Norethindrone Eth-Estra Fe 1/20,  Tarina Fe 1/20, Blisovi Fe 1/20, Larin Fe 1/20, Junel Fe 1/20, Gildess Fe 1/20, Microgestin Fe 1/20 and Loestrin Fe 1/20.

Birth control pills with iron

The majority of birth control pills contain reminder pills. Reminder pills are 4-7 pills taken during the last few days or entire week of your cycle. These pills contain inactive ingredients to help keep you in the habit of taking a pill every day.

Like most things in life, there is an exception: Birth control pills with “Fe” in their name contain iron in the reminder pills. The iron is a non-active ingredient because it does not play a role in birth control.

So why is the iron included? Some women become slightly anemic during their period. Although 75mg of iron is not enough to treat iron deficiency, it is higher than the RDA. Your physician makes the determination.

How do birth control pills work?

COC pills mainly prevent pregnancy by preventing ovulation. POPs are more effective at preventing fertilization of the egg. They cause thickening of cervical mucus which makes it difficult for sperm to reach the egg. POPs also prevent the uterine lining from thickening. An insufficient uterine lining makes it difficult or impossible for the egg to attach and remain viable. Both groups of pills can have the same effect, but each has its main mechanic of action.  

Off-label uses for birth control pills

Birth control pills may be used to treat, manage or help prevent:

  • Acne in adults and children age 15 and older
  • Endometriosis
  • Menstrual migraines
  • Excess uterine bleeding
  • Irregular periods
  • Pain during menstruation (dysmenorrhea)
  • Risk of ovarian, uterine and colon cancer
  • Risk of developing ovarian cysts
