where can i get low cost birth control without medical insurance

i looked at planned parenthood but they want to charge me a 75 dollar fee annually and 30-50 a month for the prescription, i don't have that!

i need the mini pill because i am nursing. well i don't need it but my husband won't use condoms anymore, sex takes forever with them and it hurts me.

  • try applying for womens medicaid perhaps, they usually cover everything. If not everything a big portion of it

  • wal-mart sells most of the basic brands for like $9 a pack... I was geting trisprintec (generic Ortho) from them for 9 bucks... I think Kroger has them at that price too.

  • health department - condoms. they give them out by the bag full.
    or buy condoms at the store for cheaper than what you would pay for the pill.

  • Just about every town has a Health Department. Look in your phone book under the listings for your city. They are usually at the front of the book.

    On a side note, if you can't get BC from PP or the Health Dept., your husband might need to just use a condom anyway. There are many brands, some not so thick and some well lubricated.
