Cheap birth control

Go to: Contraception Main Page

Are ou between 16 and 22 years old? The public authorities have created an arrangement for those between the ages of 16 and 22 where you receive financial support for birth control. As of today, this amounts to 118 NOK for 3 months of contraception. 

This means that a package with the cheapest pills will be free, and for those that cost more than 118 NOK you have to pay the remaining amount yourself.

If you want a long-term contraceptive (LARC) such as a copper IUD, hormone IUD or a contraceptive implant, the price will depend on how old you are. If you are 16, 17, 18 or 19 all three of them will be free of charge, but if you are 20 or 21 you must pay a deductible.

Below is a table showing the cost of the different methods of long-term contraception.*

NB! Only the copper IUD Nova-T 380 is included in the financial contribution scheme. We make sure you get a prescription for the right copper IUD. 

You need a prescription to get the IUD from the pharmacy. You can get the prescription from us. Take the prescription with you and buy it at a reduced price at the pharmacy. They will calculate what you will pay in user fee. You can then come back to our clinic with the IUD/implant where we give you information about the contraceptive you have chosen and we can do the insertion.

If you want to use methods other than long-acting contraceptives (LARC), it should always be examined whether it’s medically justifiable to use the contraceptive method. When using combination preparations (like most oral contraceptives are), it should always be examined whether it is medically justifiable for the woman to use the contraceptive. We do this thru what we call anamnesis (medical history). You also get a prescription for the contraceptive method you have chosen.

What we have to offer

We’re midwives with a long and extensive experience and certification with contraception guidance and insertion of IUD and contraceptive implants.

You can also come to our clinic for an IUD control. It is recommended to have the first check up after three months. Please contact us if you have any questions related to the chosen contraceptive method.
