I haven’t been there for years and years now, but I thought that PP had a sliding scale type payment schedule.

You have a few options… you can see if they have any cheaper hormonal options, you can look and see if there are any free or low cost clinics in your area, or you can use condoms to prevent pregnancy.

@imalittlebirdie:  This is what I’d look into too.  My sister is on a generic birth control, she doesn’t go through her insurance to get it because it’s $10/month without it instead of a $20 co pay through her insurance.

@MissBoPeep:  Haha, yea. I was a bit upset when my Gn switched me from generic to brand. The difference was  from 8 dollars to 30$ a month.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Iforget them quite often, so we double up condom and pills. I thinkwhen I had the generic  our combined bc cost was  13 $ 15 if we were extra frisky and got the big pack.

If you don’t want to use pills then keep up with the condoms and make sure to use a spermicide with them for extra protection.  Never reuse a condom, make sure they stay at proper temperature, and use a water based (spermicidal) lubricant to prevent it from tearing or breaking.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Honestly I thought I couldn’t remember either, but I set an alarm on my phone to remind me every day and I’m doing fine.

Also, look into manufacturer’s websites to see what they offer.  I was able to qualify for a discount on the Guardasil shots here: http://www.gardasil.com/what-is-gardasil/hpv-and-gardasil/coverage-for-gardasil/index.html

Depo Provera: http://www.pfizerhelpfulanswers.com/pages/Programs/programdetails.aspx?p=1

NuvaRing: http://www.nuvaring.com/consumer/savings-and-support/index.asp

What would be the cost of Mirena?  Would that be a viable option?  No discounts from what I can tell but PP usually offers payment plans and sliding scale costs on these.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  The Olny way mine screws with me if I have to double up ( or triple/ quadruple up…hahah) is I get a stomach ache. get some pretty terrible Af momenttodo BC is a must.  It also keeps me regular even if I miss a few days here or there.

I think the pill with the phone alarm is a great option. A little personal responsibility telling yourself “I MUST take this pill as soon as the alarm goes” should do the trick. Set it for a time when you’re usually not busy like 7:59pm so you can take it right before your evening shows come on or 10am a time you’re usually at your desk or something…

I take the pill and set the alarm on my phone to go off at 5:30. Right after I get home/as we’re making dinner, and I leave the case on the coffee table, so I can just grab it and take it. It’s really not that hard. Honestly, suck it up, because you may not have another choice.
