dwrash: fiddlehead: dwrash: ManateeGag: dwrash: Birth control should be available over the counter without prescriptionreally? so women, who have no idea what their needs are medically, should just randomly pick some form of birth control pill that will do God knows what to their physical and mental health? Birth control pills are not one size fits all.Karac: What's the over-the-counter cost of an IUD?yeah, just sit up on the counter and the pharmacist will put it in for you. or you can get a hand mirror and do it yourself.This isn't my idea.. its the idea of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.. you know, the doctors that prescribe them?https://www.acog.org/Resources-And-Publications/Committee-Opinions/C om mittee-on-Gynecologic-Practice/Over-the-Counter-Access-to-Oral-Contrac eptivesYou are aware that oral contraceptives and IUDs are two completely separate things, right?Absolutely, and my response was to the first section of the quoted post.. and addressed her assertion that you should have to go to a doctor to get a prescription for the pill... the doctors disagree with his/her opinion.
dwrash: So would a woman prefer to pay a 30 copay for a doctors visit and then a 10-20 copay for her birth control pills or just go to CVS and pay $25-$30 for a months supply. I think the answer is obvious. Over the counter is cheaper for everyone involved.
dwrash: Such BS from the left... NOTHING is free.. NOTHING.Birth control should be available over the counter without prescription.. and the Republicans had that in their latest bill, and it was defeated.FYI, More and more drugs are being available over the counter and not covered under insurance anymore...Like the mantra of 'free' preventative care.. free is a load of crap, you still have to pay co-pays out the wazoo.So would a woman prefer to pay a 30 copay for a doctors visit and then a 10-20 copay for her birth control pills or just go to CVS and pay $25-$30 for a months supply. I think the answer is obvious. Over the counter is cheaper for everyone involved.
