  • well I know you can go to your local planned parenthood and pay little to nothing for birth control. You can also ask your doctor. I'm getting my tubes tied but in the past I was on the depo since I'd always forget to take my pill.

  • MINERVA. It's an iud. Lasts for 5yrs and i've had it for 3 and is great. I have private insurance so i payed $0. =) The needle i believe is every 3 months and tends to make you gain weight. The iud can only be placed if you're in a monogomous relationship or/and have been pregnant. Hope this helps!

  • Paragard is good if you cannot have hormonal BC. That's what I have and it's great!

  • go to Buy the book, somewhere between $10 - $16. You will also need a thermometer and might want some condoms til you get used to the FAM method. Super cheap and no hormones.
