    Not an Option, Evidently

    Had a conversation today with a patient who is adamant about wanting non-hormonal birth control. I referred her for the IUD, but it is not covered by her insurance.

    "What are my other options?"

    "You're looking at barrier birth control. That would be the diaphragm or condoms."


    "Well, there's celibacy."

    "Oh, you're funny."

    And that was the end of that.
