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