So I am interested in getting on birth control…..

……  But I don’t have insurance and I do not have a lot of money either.  What do you all recommend I should do?

Thanks for asking! At Teen Clinic, we try to make our services as accessible as possible!

 

Someone has to make an appointment at Teen Clinic to get started on any birth control method.  During your appointment, your clinician will talk with you about your personal medical history as well as your family medical history. Then together, the two of you can discuss which method might be best for you. Then, the clinician will give you a prescription for whatever the method is.

If you are interested in The Pill, or Nuva Ring, or The Depo Shot there’s a good chance you can leave the clinic with your method.

If you decide you are interested in a more long term method like an IUD or a Nexplanon, we can schedule you another appointment to get that method.

If someone has insurance or is on their parent’s insurance plan and feel comfortable using it, they can! But if someone does not feel comfortable, we also have a Teen Clinic sliding scale.

If you are 17 and under:

  • You can receive services at no cost or donation basis! Donations are encouraged if possible, so we can continue providing low cost services to our patients. 

If you are 18 or 19:

  • You can receive services at a donation basis or at a low-cost. Most services will slide down to $0, but some services will be $5-50 based on your income. Again, donations are encouraged if possible.

If you want to make an appointment at Teen Clinic, you can give us a call at 303-442-5160
