Birth Control App Offers Free Birth Control to Women in Minnesota

(May 17, 2017)

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - 17 May, 2017 - Nurx, makers of a birth control app, are offering new users up to two months of free birth control with the promo code ?MINNESOTA today until June 30, 2017. The telemedicine start-up and mobile health platform makes birth control and PrEP (HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis) more accessible to everyone through an app.

New users will receive a $30 credit, which equates to up to two months of free birth control with the promo code. After choosing their birth control type and brand, users answer a few questions and enter their shipping and insurance information for a licensed physician to review. Once the review is complete, the doctor will issue and fill the prescription, which will be delivered to their home at no additional cost. The promo code ?MINNESOTA can be entered during checkout through June 30, 2017.

?Research shows that the easier and more affordable birth control is, the more women will use it, said Dr. Edvard Engesaeth, co-founder and COO of Nurx. ?Individuals should not have to jump through unnecessary hoops in order to access care. With Nurx, we are changing the way birth control is issued and accessed by allowing women to get the care they need on their own terms.


The app works for both new and existing birth control users and the service and shipping are often free to anyone with health care coverage. For uninsured patients, the delivery is still free and Nurx can connect the user with some brands for as low as $15 per month.

?Nurx bridges the gap many face by providing discreet, low-cost, effective contraception care for those who need it, regardless of where they live or how much money they make," said Dr. Jessica Knox, the medical director at Nurx.

Evidence has shown that abstinence only programs have done nothing to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy rates; however, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently credited increased access to low-cost reproductive health services as a contributing factor to the overall decline in teen and unintended pregnancy rates nationwide.

"At Nurx, we are focused on reducing the barriers women face, and making birth control as accessible as possible. Our promotion is a reflection of that. Nurx will continue to serve as a low-cost option for women during these uncertain times, said co-founder and CEO of Nurx, Hans Gangeskar.
