I'm posting this question on behalf of a friend, since she didn't want to be anonymous or use a sock account.
I have an IUD, and have been raving about how happy I am being off HBC & the hormones. I received my IUD for free from planned parenthood back in November, and now my friend has come to me with an interest in getting one. She has spoken to PP & her insurance provider about the cost, which for her would be about 850$ for either place, and she is going away to college in the fall so she doesn't have that kind of money to spend. After we had a discussion about this, I remembered that here on VP I had seen people talk about having gone to Canada & the UK in order to get their IUD put in free of charge. My friend is more curious about Canada (As it's a lot closer to us, we live in PA) and if she could just go up there on a trip and come back with a souvenir that would last for quite a while. Google hasn't helped us much VP, so we're looking to you for answers! Thank you in advance, my friend is incredibly appreciative for the advice & knowledge :)
