Birth Control Spermicides (cont.)

Obtaining Spermicides

Several brands and types of spermicides are available over the counter. They can be obtained at drugstores, some supermarkets, and family planning clinics. Planned Parenthood lists the cost of applicator kits for foam and gel at about $8, and refills at about $4-8. Film and suppositories are priced similarly. In some states, the cost is covered by Medicaid when provided by clinics or authorized by a private doctor.
