What if I can't afford the shot?

I can't afford it.

Birth control can be expensive, especially with no insurance. But raising a baby costs even more.

If you’re on Medicaid or earn less than $21,660 a year, the shot might be free for you. If you have private insurance, the shot is probably covered and might cost you no more than your copay.

If those aren’t options for you, check out clinics in your area that may give you a discount or payment plan if you can’t afford the full price of the shot.

Another solution might be to ask your partner to help pay for the expense.
