Fast, Affordable Women’s Healthcare Options — 100% Online

Time saver 4 min read

Women’s health: it’s just as complex as the body it cares for. Women’s health is something that follows women throughout our lives and important life stages: from birth, to our awkward and embarrassing teenage years, to motherhood, infertility, or to the choice not to have children, and beyond. With such a complex range of women’s healthcare options, it’s difficult to know what can be taken care of with an online visit, and what’s best left to your gynecologist, primary care provider, or clinic.

Enter: Virtuwell. Our certified nurse practitioners are here to help you with common women’s health issues, postpartum and breastfeeding care, and sexual health services.

Stop the burn

Let’s start with one of the most common ailments Virtuwell treats: urinary tract infections (UTIs). When you feel that telltale twinge—the burning when you pee, and the shiver down your spine, only to produce a few drops—you just know in your gut this is another UTI or bladder infection. Despite the common understanding, research shows that uncomplicated bladder infections don’t require a culture to safely treat the infection.

That’s right, Virtuwell can safely treat UTIs online – no labs or tests required.

Gain your balance back

But UTI treatment isn’t the only thing made easier with online care.
When things just feel off, Virtuwell can also safely and discreetly treat yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis (BV). Both characterized by changes in discharge, itching, pain, and swelling, Virtuwell’s certified nurse practitioners ask the right questions to decipher whether it’s an overgrowth of fungus (yeast infection), or an overgrowth of bacteria (BV), all without tests or labs.

Virtuwell can prescribe you with an antifungal — no creams, no mess, just one pill taken by mouth — to treat your yeast infection fast, or a short course of antibiotics for BV to get you back in balance in no time.

Get birth control online

It’s one of those things that can feel uncomfortable or embarrassing to talk about, but understanding and having easy access to birth control options is so important for your sexual health.

Hormonal birth control can be a pivotal piece of women’s healthcare, offering plenty of benefits that go beyond preventing pregnancy. They can regulate your menstrual cycle, relieve PMS symptoms, reduce hormonal acne, and reduce your risk for uterine or ovarian cancer, ovarian cysts, and anemia.

But finding the right birth control for you can be a journey. Connecting with a care provider online can be a great way to explore your birth control options, without the awkwardness of a face-to-face visit.

Backup protection

If your primary form of birth control fails—maybe a condom broke or you forgot to take your pill—we’ve still got you covered. Emergency contraception often called “The Morning-After Pill” or “Plan B” can be used to prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. It shouldn’t be used as your main form of contraception, and it won’t terminate or negatively affect an existing pregnancy.

Over-the-counter methods are most effective when used within 72 hours of unprotected sex, and prescription methods can be effective up to five days after unprotected sex. Online clinics like Virtuwell offer a fast, convenient option to connect with a nurse practitioner and get the care and peace of mind you need.

Relief for new moms

When you’ve got a new little one at home, all of your focus and energy go to making sure your baby is safe, fed, and happy. So when a breast infection or a clogged duct happens, you just don’t have the capacity to schedule an impromptu women’s health appointment, pack up the diaper bag, stroller, and car seat, and lug all of that to your appointment. Instead, you can get treatment quickly without having to disrupt nap time.

With online care, you can connect with a certified nurse practitioner who will teach you the best techniques for relief and, if necessary will send an antibiotic to your preferred pharmacy.

Discreet STI treatment

STI protection and treatment are crucial to your overall sexual health, and nothing should get in the way of you getting swift, safe, discreet, and affordable treatment.

Yes, it can feel embarrassing or awkward to talk about, but checking in, getting consistently tested, and getting treatment when necessary is so important, that we’ve made it easier to take charge of your sexual health with online care.

If your partner has received a positive STI test, or you’ve recently been exposed, some states will allow us to treat you for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis online.

For those who experience genital herpes flare ups, online clinics like Virtuwell are the fastest way to get the antiviral prescription you need to clear things up. Plus, our certified nurse practitioners offer tips to ease discomfort and prevent future outbreaks.
