Don’t feel bad – I would have told too, I’m not going to lie.

@laughingemotions: As long as the relationship that you have with your brother is still intact, and he doesn’t go off accusing his Girlfriend of anything, I think everyone will be fine. I would have done the same thing you did.

Wow… what is he going to do?

Hopefully he can have a calm conversation with her. Maybe focusing on the point that her medical bills are currently going to the wrong address?

I hope everything is ok and she just switched forms of BC.

I would’ve told my brother too. Good for you for saying something.

I also think it was the right thing to do.  It could end up being a misunderstanding but that’s soft of a big deal..

I’m very curious to see how this all pans out. If she just switched her BC, and I were her, I would be furious with you right now. Sorry – I know you feel as if it were your place to tell him, but I still disagree. It was her business to tell him.

i would have done the same, try not to worry about it too much, you’re just looking out for him.

I hope for your brother’s sake that this is simply a BC switch.  If that’s so (and this is probable), there was no reason for her to be ‘honest’ with him- we omit all kinds of routine medical stuff from our conversations. Lord knows I don’t tell Fiance about every cavity I get, lol. If she went off of BC completely though…there’s a problem! I think you did the right thing by telling your brother. I would have told my brother too if I was privy to such info- my loyalties are to him first.

@laughingemotions: I definitely agree that it was pretty crappy of her ex to be blabbing her medical information all over the place, but I think you should’ve talked to her about it rather than your brother. I know you have an obligation to him, but the bill could have been for the removal and replacement of the device and he only read one part of it…there could be a lot of different explanations, and I just think this is going to get very hairy for you.

Hmm…praying for them that it was a scheduled IUD removal (I know Mirena has to get switched out every 5 years) and she switched BC methods, or maybe the bill was read wrong and they put another IUD in.  In her defense, when I had my IUD switched out, I didn’t make a big conversation about it with SO..it was more of an “after the fact” convo since nothing was really changing…we were still protected.
