What is it like going to Planned Parenthood for birth control?

I just lost my virginity and took a Plan B pill. I need birth control pills asap and cannot afford to wait for the next available appointment with my ob/gyn. So, I will be going to Planned Parenthood. I've never been to Planned Parenthood, never been on any form of birth control (except the Plan B pill I just took) and have no idea what to expect. Did you go to PP for birth control pills, and how satisfied were you with the level of care? Generally speaking, have you consulted with both a Certified Nurse-Midwife and an OB/GYN? Which one did you prefer, and why?

Lowest-risk combination method of [condom + (insert preferred non-IUD, non-hormonal contraceptive here)]

Currently I live the starving graduating college student life and had to leave my previous job for an unpaid internship this semester. In addition to having no steady income, my family's new insurance policy covers zero of my prescriptions costs. This is making me consider alternative contraceptions that are: - Affordable to a rather strict budget, and - Non-IUD or hormonal-based What are your nominations for the lowest-risk contraceptive alternatives I could use in tandem with condoms, that are most affordable?
