Ok, so I want to start using the pill for several reasons. I get really bad cramps when I'm on my period and a friend says it totally relieves you of that pain. Plus, I think it would be a good thing just in case things get out of hand with my bf. Anyway, I just had a couple of questions. Do you have to go to a gynecologist, or can you just go to your regular doctor? And does most insurance cover at least part of the cost??? Thanks guys!!!!!
