  • I think you can order it from mexico. I think if you go to Planned Parenthood it's cheaper.

  • You have to have a prescription. Go to Planned Parenthood, bc pills are like $20 a month.

  • Are there any free community health clinics near you? I know when I was in high school I got all my bc totally free from the local clinic. I'd be nervous about ordering from another country. And I personally wouldn't support Planned Parenthood in any way.

  • goldenfox: why wouldn't you support PP? I know for sure that the one in my city doesn't mention abortion nor do they perform abortions, they can lose their federal funding if they do so. PP can be a lifesaver for a lot of people that don't have insurance and have nowhere else to go. I don't know of ANY free clinics anywhere.

  • If you want to get the real thing online, it is going to cost more than a doctor would.

  • Go see your doctor. Tell him/her your financial issues. They should be able to give you some samples (my friend took her daughter & the doctor gave her 6 months worth of samples). Do not use online pharmacies-many of them are scams.

  • You have to have a prescription. There are multiple pills out there, and they want to get you the right one. You should look into Planned Parenthood. There are different free clinics out there, but PP is trustworthy.
