  • Planned parenthood offers well-woman care on a sliding scale basis. Some sites also offer services for men: www.plannedparenthood.org

  • Not sure. When I was 18 they paid for my BC, a vasectomy may be more cost effective.

  • I dont know about planned parenthood, per se, but in a local county here in N. GA, the health department does pay for them. You call them and tell them what you would like to do and then refer you to a urologist in the area and I think out of pocket its like $30 but you get it back once you go through with the procedure. I have had 2 friends go about it this way after they both had 3 children. I dont know if its specific to this county only or what. We had private insurance so we didnt qualify for this program and ours cost us $600 after insurance. Still paying on it. I felt kinda jipped but I wouldnt give up my private insurance for anything. I would call around and ask.
