How do I approach SO with this?

I am a twenty-three year old liberated woman who has been on the pill for two years. It's getting expensive and I think my boyfriend should share half the cost, but I don't know him well enough to discuss money with him.

If you don't know him well enough to talk money, you shouldn't be screwing him!

This.

He must not be that significant.

How is he your BOYFRIEND if you aren't comfortable enough to talk to him about finances? It's either talk to him about helping with the pills or you will be dealing with him for the next 18 years chasing him for child support.

Wouldn't you be on the pill even if you weren't with him?
Have him splurge on condoms instead.
I don't think he should share an expense that you would have regardless of who you are with.

i completely agree!

it should also be 50/50... you take care of your portion- with birth control... and he take care of his portion, with condoms or spermicide or whatever guys have. i dont think i would've ever asked my ex to take on half of my birth control even though i knew his income and we were together for 5 years.... if i couldnt afford it, i also wouldnt be having sex... just b/c, knowing me, i'd probably end up pregnant and if i cant afford birth control, there's no way i could afford another baby!

If you don't know him that well you shouldn't be asking him to cover your medications
