  • Locate your states Family Planning Organization. They'll typically do it for free or at a low cost for women who don't have insurance that covers birth control.

    And as a side note, depending on what state you live in a pharmacist legally has to give you birth control even if you can't pay for it.
    (My husband is a pharmacist in Illinois and that's how it is here.)
