Errin is one of the many brand names for a generic progestin-only pill that’s licensed in the US. Some of the other names for the same birth control pill are Lyza, Sharobel, Norethindrone, Jolivette and Jencycla. All these pills are names for the same generic equivalent of the branded birth control pill called Micronor.
A progestin-only pill contains just one hormone. Most birth control pills in the US are called ‘combination’ pills because they combine 2 hormones.
Progestin-only pills have a lower risk of serious side effects than combination pills. The down side of Errin is you have to take the pills at the same time every day.
We can give you a prescription for progestin-only pills even if you’re over 35 with high blood pressure and other health conditions that make it inappropriate to give you a combination pill.
Our doctors are licensed in the states where we operate.
