Since you don’t really have a choice, I would wait to start them until insurance covers them again.  Yes, your body will probably be messed up, and you should wait 7 days after starting the new pack before having unprotected sex but it’s probably the best option.

Buy the pills now. It’s not just a matter of waiting 11 days; you’ll have to wait to start them until you have your next period, and even then, you’ll have to use back up protection for another two months AFTER you re-start them to be sure your body is readjusted, so that’s about three months from now. Is saving the money worth that? Can you trust yourself and your Fiance to always use other protection for three months? Wouldn’t it be safer to stretch your money now than accidentally get pregnant and then you’d really have to stretch your money? Sorry, I think it is easy to take the idea of birth control lightly even though its consequences are anything but.

Save yourself the worry and buy them…maybe explain the situation to your guy to see if he can help pay. 

Also, by the sounds of it, you’re rounding into the most fertile time of your cycle (14 days before period), however I’m not sure if that applies when you’re on the pill.

It’s a pain in the butt now, but it’ll be way less stress over the upcoming month!

If you just bite the bullet and pay for them, you’ll have to pay whatever they cost. If you wait, you’ll have to pay for (and use) condoms until your body has re-adjusted to being back on birth control pills. Either way, you’ll be spending money on some sort of contraceptive. Personally, unless the pills were really expensive, I’d go with them over condoms.

It was just last night?  If you can wait til tomorrow, call or go to your Dr’s office or even a clinic asap.  They should be able to give you a pack.  Once I skipped a whole day and I just doubled up the next day, no big deal.  Cool Good luck to you.

Yikes. You poor thing! Abbee’s right that it’s possible that your doctor’s office can give you a sample pack.

Since you just started BC, though, it might not be a huge deal to just wait. Just remember that you’ll need extra protection in the meantime.

Did you actually call your insurance company?  Sometimes if you (not your pharmacy, but you) call and explain the situation, they can override the copay (not always, but sometimes).  It wouldn’t hurt to try

Ask for the sample pack. Or go to Planned Parenthood and get some for free or for a lower cost, especially if you explain the situation. They do that sort of thing all the time.

@kate169: About the pain you have during sex, I think you should consider going to a specialist.  I did and it has helped quite a bit.  I still have days where I don’t feel well enough but it has helped so that every time I have sex doesn’t hurt horribly.  Also, look into positions that don’t allow him to go in as deep, it helps with the pain.  Sorry for the Too Much Information there!
