I have been reading weddingbee for awhile but never posted before. Ironically my first post has nothing to do with weddings but I always see some great advice on here and I need some!
I am a US citizen that has recently moved back to the US with my husband from overseas. We don’t have jobs yet and very little money so we can’t afford health insurance – I’ve researched and have only found plans for over $500 a month. I have tried to make appointments with doctors to get a prescription for birth control but no one will see me because I am not “their patient”. I only have 3 days left of pills – any ideas what I can do to get some birth control pills?

Go to planned parenthood, I believe that you can get BC through their docs. And it is cheaper I think.

Try Planned Parenthood. When my friend temporarily lost her insurance, she went there to get birth control pills. Give them a call and they should be able to get you in. They won’t just “give” you pills though…you’ll probably have to have an exam.

wow just called and the one nearest me is booked out until January!
Theres another one thats about an hour away that has walk in hours – guess I will try my luck there. Do you guys know about how much an appointment will cost?

Planned parenthood! (if there is one near you)
I grew up in a pretty rural area with no planned parenthood within 50 miles. The health department there offered affordable pap smears and birth control to everybody.

I was going to suggest the Health Dept. too. That’s where I went for mine before I had insurance! But I know they were booked pretty far out too – hopefully yours won’t be!

Planned Parenthood is your friend in cases like these!

I don’t think the appointment will cost very much because it is meant for people who can’t afford to go to a regular doctor. Just let them know you are uninsured and they will work with you I’m sure!

Planned parenthood does prescribe bc without an exam. Did you tell them about your situation? Its always possible they could squeeze you in just for the bc…
