What a waste of money!

I normally don't make posts like this but I need to vent.
A girl I know (who is on welfare) went to her OB and asked for the Mirena and he prescribed it. She is now posting pictures on FB of her playing with the damn thing along with captions "playing with what is SUPPOSED to be my birth control, but oh well. I'll just say I lost it and have a new one prescribed".
All I can think is "those things are expensive and welfare covers them 100%. Why waste that money? Idiot".

    She removed it fresh from the package.


    Quoting jynkx:

    Where I am from (Ontario) your OB prescribes it at an appointment. When you leave you take the prescription to the pharmacy and they special order it. After it arrives they contact you and you go and pick it up and keep it with you until your appointment to have it inserted.

    Quoting HotMichMomma:

    Why does she have possession of it? The doc is suppose to insert it

    Umm what? That's weird. I just saw the explanation about why she has it. Again, that's weird....can't it get contaminated? Wouldn't they want to NOT have germy hands all over something that is meant for inside the cervix?

    seems like she never had any intention of using it properly.

    Lies. LOL They don't just hand you the damn thing, they insert it before you leave. It isn't something that you can put in and out whenever.

    Medicaid will deny the second one and she will have to pay.

    That's why patients are to keep it in the sterile package.

    Wow! Medicaid here in the US won't cover it. It'll cover all other ones including Implanon but not Mirena.

    Want to see the photo?
    I can assure you that in Ontario you are given the package until your appointment. It was like this back in 2008 when I got one as well.
    Our OBs only keep one on hand to show his/her patients what it looks like and such.
