I've been on Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo for almost 2 years now... I just graduated college and do not have any health insurance. It was costing me $15 a month with my parents insurance but once this pack I just started runs out, that is it. I think it's something like $47 at the pharmacy I've been going to without any insurance.
Anyone run into the same problem, ever? Any suggestions on possibilities of where I can get the pill for the cheapest without any insurance? Does Planned Parenthood prescribe BC without an exam? I am not due for a pap smear until June. I could very likely still get a script from my doctor, but if so I'm trying to find my cheapest options for continuing to stay on the pill because I prefer it much much more than just using condoms.
Anyone have any advice? I heard of birthcontrol.com where you can get 3 packs for $47, but how valid is that?
Hey i have the same problem, and only get payed $8 ph, so i understand the need to find cheep bc. If you go to planned parenthood, they will have you fill out papers, and one of the questions is how much you make, depending on how much you make is how much they charge. I have to pay 15 for my pills so thats affordable. I usualy pick up 2 packs for $20 the first couple months they were okay w/o giving me an exam. I think since you dont need one yet you should be fine. Planned parenthood is great! Also, you dont need to, but everyone there is a volenteer so when ever i have alittle extra money i give it to them.
$47 isn't horrible I actually had to pay $75 for mine at one time because my insurance didn't cover birth control!!! I would have to go with the girls on this one and say that the planned parenthood is the best way to go otherwise cut back on some other things to pay the higher price.
Yeah, you can go to Planned Parenthood or the local free clinic and they can give you a great discount, if not free birth control.
It might depend on your income though. Either way, it's probably cheaper.
Don't NEED planned parenthood. Check out walmart, walgreens, CVS, etc. they all have lists of Rx's that are $4, $9, and even 3 months of an RX for $10. Ortho Tricyclene and Ortho Cyclene are both on the cheap list at Walmart for sure. If you are paying more than that you are not so smart.
about cheap birth control Ä± think you should read this article
All children born into this world should be planned and wanted. It is for this reason that men and women who are sexually active should have access to or practice the use of contraceptives. Religious convictions aside, there should be no reason why one who engages in sexual activity will not use contraceptives if having children is still out of oneâs plans. With our advancing technology, contraceptives are now cheap, effective, and very accessible. Perhaps the cheapest and easily bought types of contraceptives are the birth control pill, the condom, and spermicide.
The pill is available in many different brands and type. You can buy a generic brand or one that is under an expensive brand name, which is usually bought with a prescription. Generally speaking, the pill is effective in preventing conception by up to 98 percent. It is available in drugstores or pharmacies anywhere. The price of the birth control pill ranges from under $10 for the generic brands to much higher amounts for the branded ones. Those who cannot afford to buy the pill at the standard prices can try obtaining them in family planning clinics in the community. If you are under an insurance plan from the company you work for, try to find out if the plan can cover prescription for the pill....
