Hi

This will depend on your medical aid, your particular option and availability of funds. Some may and some some may not.

Your pharmacy would be able to tell you upon processing your prescription (you will require a prescription and will therefore have to see a doctor).

State clinics do offer SOME brand of contraceptive pills, and this will most likely be for free.
