    I use to pay $50 a month when I was taking pills. Then I got the IUD and only had to pay my $25 copay (thank goodness OBGYN’s aren’t considered specialist under my plan)

    When I was on bc it was a $15 a month copay.

    I like the idea of it being free though. If someone has trouble coming up with their copay or the cost of generic bc, then they DEFINITELY shouldn’t be getting pregnant.

    The co-pay with previous insurance company was $25. With the new company, we have to pay full price $80 per month until the deductible is met.

    If I were to pick it up at the pharmacy once a month, it’d be $10/mo.

    I get though an online prescription filling service though and get 3 months worth at a time for $25. So about $8/mo.

    with the insurance through my grad school, ortho-tri-cylclen lo is $40/month. so freaking expensive! it adds up to almost $500/year. with the insurance at my old job the copay was like $15/month–much more reasonable…

    Contraceptives have long been free through the NHS in the UK. I’ve now got a Mirena coil (also free).

    I get it for $9 a month at walmart. I use a generic, its crazy not to, why pay more for the name on the package. that being said at $9 a month its still $108 a year and thats crazy. I am all for free birth control if it really happens (I dont trust the crazy people to let this one go)

    I used to use an ortho tri cyclen generic and that only cost me $9/mo (yay!) but then I got switched to the Lo (which doesn’t have a generic) and that started off as $30/month which then got raised $60/mo (argh!). So I called and yelled at them and they told me if I do 3 months at a time (which is a pain in the ass to do) its the same price as 1 mo. So now I do that and its $60 for 3 mo = $20/mo.
