    Mini pill Cerazette for $1

    Just wanted to let BF mothers know that in the follow up postnatal appointment at the MCHC, you will be asked if you would like a family planning consult. This costs $1 HKD and they will provide you with birth control. As I am breastfeeding they provided me with information and gave me a supply of Cerazette. When you need more all you do is go in anytime during the clinic session and pay $1 and head to their pharmacy to collect. Very straightforward! I had asked at my private local clinic and was told they do not stock the mini pill....

    Wow - really $1. What is MCHC? I was paying $150 a month for my prescription of Cerazette at my doctor.

    Thanks rani. I assume that the super cheap price is only for so long as you are breastfeeding? I am still taking it but finished breastfeeding.

    And last week I went for a follow up consultation, saw the nurse and Dr and then off to the pharmacy for 3 months supply of cerazette - all for $1. Visit took about 40 mins so actually pretty good!

    Do you know if it's necessary to have given birth at a public hospital in order to sign up at the MCHC for post-natal care?

    Riley - I'm not sure, but I DO know people who have had their babies at private hospitals but then take them to the public MCHCs, so I'm sure it's an option. You can look them up and give them a call to ask them.

    I'm off to the family planning place this afternoon to see if I can get myself some Cerazette - I've been paying for it myself for the past 6+ months! Wish someone had told me about this option earlier :)
