We're both snipped. My bilateral salpingectomy was covered by insurance, cost us less than $200 out of pocket. His vasectomy was partially covered and cost us $400 out of pocket.

You make a great point. There are states that have legislation requiring insurance to cover vasectomies. It’s required in maryland, for example. I bet there is a similar effort wherever you live! Check out your state’s NARAL website. I bet they would love to use your story to help their campaign.

That's rough. So sorry. Are you not eligible for the Essure procedure (inserts placed into your fallopian tubes that make your body seal them shut)?


abortion_access

Essure wasn’t safe and was pulled from the market in 2018

I see. I hadn't kept up with it. Thanks.

They don't make essure anymore because it was so damaging to so many women.


androidbear04

Yikes! Well, I wondered about that...


Amberfoxe

I asked my doctor and she said the don't do that method anymore.


androidbear04

Oh, that's too bad.
