Fast, affordable women’s healthcare options — 100% online
Women’s health—it’s as complex as the bodies it cares for. As women, taking care of our health is something that’s important to prioritize through every life stage. From our awkward teenage years to becoming an adult—and possibly a mom—and beyond. But with so many women’s healthcare options, it can be difficult to know how to get the care you need when you need it. Is it always necessary to take the time to see your gynecologist or primary care provider in-person? Are there other more convenient and affordable options?
Enter: Virtuwell. Our certified nurse practitioners are here to help you with everyday women’s health issues—100% online, 24/7. How? Read on to learn more about some of the women’s health conditions we treat.
Stop the burn
Let’s start with one of the most common ailments Virtuwell treats—urinary tract infections (UTIs). Ugh, the familiar urgent twinge that you have to go, the burning when you pee, and all only to produce a few drops. These are the telltale signs that you have another UTI or bladder infection. Thankfully, 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.
Get back in balance
But UTIs aren’t the only common women’s health condition that can easily be treated online. Virtuwell can also safely and discreetly treat yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis (BV). Both vaginal conditions that are characterized by changes in discharge and itching, pain and swelling. Virtuwell’s certified nurse practitioners ask the right questions to decipher whether you may have an overgrowth of fungus (yeast infection), or an overgrowth of bacteria (BV)—all without labs or tests.
Virtuwell can prescribe an antifungal medication—no creams, no mess, just one pill taken by mouth—to treat your yeast infection fast. Or, if you have BV, a short course of antibiotics can help get you back in balance.
Get birth control online
Having easy access to birth control options is an important component of promoting women’s sexual health.
Hormonal birth control can play a pivotal role in a woman’s health, offering benefits that go beyond preventing pregnancy. Birth control can help regulate your menstrual cycle, relieve PMS symptoms and reduce hormonal acne. Additionally, birth control can be used to reduce your risk of developing ovarian cysts, anemia and uterine and ovarian cancer.
But finding the right birth control option can be a journey. Connecting with a care provider online is an easy and affordable way to explore your birth control options—all from the comfort of home.
Get emergency birth control online
If your primary form of birth control fails—maybe a condom broke or you forgot to take your pill—we’ve 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’s important to note that emergency contraception shouldn’t be used as a main form of contraception and won’t terminate or negatively affect an existing pregnancy.
Over-the-counter medications are most effective when used within 72 hours of having unprotected sex and prescription medications can be effective up to five days after unprotected sex. Online clinics like Virtuwell provide a fast, convenient option to connect with a nurse practitioner and get the care and peace of mind you need.
Relief for breastfeeding moms
When you’ve got a new little one at home, all of your energy is spent making sure your baby is safe, fed and happy. So when a breast infection or a clogged duct happens, you likely don’t have the mental capacity or time to deal with scheduling an impromptu doctor’s appointment, packing up the diaper bag and stroller and going into a healthcare clinic. A better option for new moms? Get treatment quickly without disrupting nap time.
With online care, you can connect with a certified nurse practitioner who will help you discover how to get relief and feel better. If necessary, an antibiotic can also be sent to your preferred pharmacy.
Discreet STI treatment
STIs are common and can negatively affect your overall sexual health. At Virtuwell, we believe that nothing should get in the way of you getting swift, safe, discreet and affordable treatment.
That’s why we’ve made it easier than ever to take control of your sexual health. So you can get tested and get treatment for STIs—all online and all at an affordable price.
Plus, if your partner received a positive STI test, or you were recently exposed, some states will allow us to treat you for chlamydia, gonorrhea and 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. And our certified nurse practitioners can offer tips to help ease discomfort and prevent future outbreaks.
