If I was looking to get an IUD that lasts 5 years, and I am currently 17 years old, how much will it cost me in total for the process? Including the examination with the doctor? I would not be using an insurance company.

Getting a long-term method of birth control like the IUD is a great decision for lots of people. It’s convenient, easy to use, and very, very good at preventing pregnancy - less than 1 out of 100 people who use an IUD will get pregnant each year. 

Without using insurance, IUDs can be expensive, though. The cost can range between $500-$1,300. The good news is that lots of Planned Parenthood health centers offer programs to make it more affordable for people who don’t have or can’t use insurance. Speak with the staff at your nearest Planned Parenthood health center to figure out how much getting an IUD may cost for you, and what they can do to help you pay for it.
