So my new NuvaRing got thrown away (I’ve been having a lot of NuvaRing issues lately!). Somehow the Rx bottle got taken out of the pharmacy bag and the ring, with its flat packaging, well, oops. Great. So I call the pharmacy and they can tell me right now that my insurance isn’t going to fill it again. Oh. Well how much does it cost?

$150.

What?!!?

I’ve paid out of pocket for the NR in the past and it has never cost that much! I won’t be able to fill it through insurance until February 15 and I have PCOS, so that would mean more to me than a couple weeks of using condoms.

Panic!

Wait! Don’t panic yet, Planned Parenthood!

The NuvaRing is $35 at Planned Parenthood.

Long live Planned Parenthood.
