Late last night while removing my menstrual cup, I accidentally dislodged my IUD. (sorry for TMI). I immediately had a freak out since it would be a really bad time to get pregnant. (FH and I are living 1.5 hours away since we have crazy jobs and seeing each other on weekends and sometimes during the week, dealing with lot of stress, and I am on an acne medication that causes birth defects.) I called my doctor and was initially told I couldn’t get in, then found out they would work me in, but they couldn’t get a replacement in for 2 weeks. After a whole bunch of calls, I finally got an appointment with a different doctor for tomorrow for the replacement. I am switching to the copper IUD and so nervous about it- both the insertion (first one was awful) and the periods are supposed to be pretty rough.
Then I called the insurance, and despite prevention being covered 100%, they said my birth control isn’t prevention, it just goes toward my deductible, so will cost me $800. Planned Parenthood would be “at least $600, probably more,” so I am stuck with it. We can afford it, but I am so kicking myself!
Then to make matters worse, I found out my grandma’s cancer is back. I lost my grandpa not long ago and she is my last living grandparent and it just makes me so sad.
The only upsides of this whole endeavor is that I will get the new IUD in tomorrow, and FH has been awesome. Even though his job is super busy, he called me as soon as I woke up, on my lunch break, and again tonight. He sent me several sweet texts and didn’t freak out at all.
Anyway, I am just feeling sad and frustated with myself and would appreciate any prayers, positive thoughts, etc.
