Just opening the floodgates for some debate

Personally I dont think it ought to be.

All contraception should be free. Which is why im amazed Boots get away charging £25 for the MAP.

Nope, not if it's the daily one- there's a box at the bottom of the prescription in the exemptions saying 'contraception pill only'

Jeez... I'm glad! UK is far to expensive with prescriptions- £7 per item?!?! It's only £3.25 over here... And I hace a regular prescription I'm going to be skint when I go to uni
