That’s about what I was paying with insurance.  Without, I was paying $75/month, but I figure a kid costs even more so it was worth it!

I was paying $30 through my school. And without insurance, before school it was probably close to $60. Someone else was talking about it, recently, just look for insurance won’t cover Birth Control thread. 

If it’s expensive, try planned parenthood. Nuvaring also does a one month trial I think (check their website). You can try and see also if you get a discount for getting more than a month at a time also.

I pay $192 for a three month supply.  That being said, I’m also self-insured and have a much different plan now than I did in corporate America.  I also pay a hell of a lot less per month, so even though I pay out the $%@# for the Nuvaring, I actually come out on top month after month.

I used to have Blue Cross Blue Shield and it was $30 per month. My company changed insurance providers to Harvard Pilgrim and now it’s a bargain $15! 

I’ve read too that sometimes insurance companies will give you the option of getting prescriptions at reduced rates if you do prescription-mail-order services. They’re cheaper, so in the end it costs the insurance company less and therefore you less. But you’d have to check with your provider about that.

Nuvaring is awesome though, I hope you find a way to make it affordable!

$90 for each one without insurance, $25 each with insurance.

Some places won’t let you order the Nuvaring by mail because it’s supposed to be kept refrigerated and they can’t guarantee that it will be refrigerated properly when shipped.

@QuietOne-I hated it .. a friend of mine suggested I switch b/c she loved it and I was having trouble remembering to take the pill b/c of my crazy schedule .. but I just didn’t like it .. I gave it 6 months and switched back

However, like I mentioned — she loved it and still does

I had it free after insurance, but that was through university insurance.

I liked it, but apparently I’m pretty sensitive to synthetic hormones, so I’m no longer on it.

@QuietOne: I was on the BCP before (can’t even remember for the life of me now which one… I’ll think on it) and experienced a lot of emotions and anxiety. I didn’t realize it was connected to my pill until about a month after I stopped taking them. (my Fiance is in the military and he was away so my BC wasn’t a concern and my prescription had ran out)

When I went back to my doctor, I told him my experience. I’d also had a friend who took Yaz and had a similar experience and she’d switched to the ring with much success, so my doctor agreed to put me on the ring too. My mood swings and anxiety are practically non-existant, and I never have to worry about taking it at the same time each day. It’s amazing!

@QuietOne-I was always paranoid it was slipping out .. I never “felt” anything but it made me nervous .. I also just didn’t like leaving something in that long.  It was really  more of just an “in my head” thing than something specific.

@QuietOne-I definitely think it is great to try though!  It has soo many positives and if you are comfortable with it, then I really would use it.  I wish I could have gotten comfortable
