Teens who want to take the Plan B pill, do they need to pay? or what if they cant afford it? If your under 18 do you need someone over 18 to come i with you?

Anyone — no matter your age or gender — can get morning-after pills like Plan B over the counter without a prescription at drug stores, pharmacies, super stores, or Planned Parenthood health centers. Sometimes the morning-after pill is locked up or kept behind the counter, so you may have to ask the pharmacist or store clerk for help getting it — but you don't have to have a prescription or show your ID.

Over-the-counter morning-after pills can cost anywhere from $11 to $50. Generics usually cost less. The brand you buy or how much you pay for it doesn’t matter — all brand-name and generic levonorgestrel morning-after pills work just as well. But you may be able to get the morning-after pill for free or low cost. Learn more about the cost of morning-after pills.

It's important to note that over-the-counter pills like Plan B may not work if you weigh more than 165 pounds.  If that’s the case, IUDs or another morning-after pill called ella are better options for you. Our handy quiz can help you figure out which EC is best for you.
