You might be able to get one low cost at Planned parethood or a county health center. One of my friends in Oregan got hers for FREE!!!
When I got a mirena, WITH insurance, I think I owed about 200 after insurance paid..so I'm really not sure. I know doctors always over charge the insurance company for things.
Good luck, I hope you can get one, IUD are really the way to go. Low side effects and you can't forget to take them like pills!
