If by ‘birth control’, you mean the pill, then there are different ways you can get them and the cost depends on a few factors.
If you get a prescription from a doctor and go to a pharmacy to get it filled, the pill will cost about 15 – 20$ a month. Depending on your age, you may be able to go to a youth clinic and get free pills. Also, Options for Sexual Health has clinics throughout BC and you can usually buy pills from them at a reduced cost.
How many packages you can get depends on who you see and how long you have been on the pill. For example, if you go to a youth clinic and are starting the pill, you may get free pills for 3 months. If you are seeing a doctor and have been on the pill for a while, you may be given a prescription for 12 months.
There are many types of birth control. Check out Options for Sexual Health to learn more about the different birth control methods.
