Cost of the Pill
Hi, I would like to start using the pill. I am 19 and my parents do not know that I am sexually active. I don't have a lot of money, but would like to pay for this medication without having to ask them. What is the average cost for it monthly and where is the best place to get it?

Thanks

The cheapest option is to get them from your local Family Planning clinic. At a pharmacy, prices will vary between about R50 and R150
