About Estarylla (Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol)

How does it work?

Estarylla is a form of contraception that contains Norgestimate (a progestin) and Ethinyl Estradiol (an estrogen). These hormones prevent pregnancy by:

  • Stopping ovulation (the release of an egg)
  • Thickens cervical mucus, making it harder for the sperm to reach the egg
  • Thinning the uterine lining so eggs can’t implant as easily

What symptoms or conditions can it help manage?

  • Endometriosis pain and inflammation
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Moderate acne
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Painful periods
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) symptoms

What forms does it come in?

This form of birth control comes in a blister pack with 28 tablets. It’s monophasic, so all the active pills have the same level of hormones. Each pack contains 21 active tablets and 7 placebo tablets.

Estarylla vs. Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol

Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol are the hormones in this medicine that help prevent pregnancy. Other brands can also contain these hormones. They might have different hormone levels or packaging, though.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a birth control prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Estarylla (3 28-tablet blister packs) start at $16.97.
