On Tuesday I’m getting my contraceptive implant bar replaced. It’s been about 2.5 years since my first one was put in, and it’s starting to wear off.
The total cost of this process, the bar, the applicator, the double doctor’s appointment and the check up later to see how it’s going is $6. Thank you Australian health system!
Don’t you dare tell me that healthcare isn’t important. Imagine how many teens and young people in general could benefit from 3 years of contraceptive treatment at the cost of just $6?
The US needs to sort out its priorities.
