i have been to parent planning and here where i live it is at the health department. i have been going there for 5 years now and i have never had to pay a dime. the only kind of physical i have received was a pap smear and breast exam. it is very confidential and your parents don't have to know and i did have to call and make an appt. so good luck and hope this really helps.

-How much money is it to buy the pills?
~When you fill out paperwork, you put your monthly income and it is based on that. I never paid for the exam but paid a minimal amount for the pills. Can't remember how much, it's been a while ago.

-Do I have to have a physical?
~To get birth control anywhere you have to have a pap smear done prior and once a yr. after.

-What is involved in the physical?
~They do a pap and breast exam-same as they do when you find out your preg. and afterwards.

-Is it confidential? Do my parents have to know?
~It's confidential. They ask if they can call and state who they are and you can say no. Or they will send you a letter in the mail in an blank envelope if your pap happened to come back abnormal.

-Could I just walk in or do I need an apt?
~You'll need to make an appt for the exam. They're usually very busy. When you need more pills you can just walk in.

You can visit www.plannedparenthood.org for more information
