This came in the mail for me this week from my health insurance provider. I thought I would share it with you, in case you didn't know. Oh, it was so helpful. I hope it's not toooo blurry, because you should read this. For serious.
Ah, the mysteries of the woman body. What should you know? Well, let me share some tidbits. How about...
It is? For reals. I did NOT know how fragile my reproductive system is. Did you?
And this is what it has to say about those said issues.
No way. Cysts on the ovaries? Endometriosis? Those are totally new terms to me! You can get an infection in you lady parts? Cervical cancer? OMG! This was all new information to me!
What really pissed me off about this pamphlet, aside from the obvious wasting of a tree... the fact that it has such limited and not even basic information about anything. There's no explanation for the crap in it, it's just like... "Go talk to your doctor." type of feel.
It mentions ovarian cysts, but not PCOS. What the hell? I thought PCOS was extremely common? Yet... not even a glazing over. Wow.
And furthermore, what universe do they live in where a doctor notices these things in you at a regular check up?Are you serious? I had regular check ups for years, and you know what? My PCOS and subsequent infertility were not diagnosed until I was trying to have a baby for awhile. After I had missed my period for a dangerously long time.
Thanks insurance company, I know you were trying to help. But you are a dumb ass. If you want to help, be more... I don't know, helpful?
I guess it really doesn't matter to you anyway, right? It's not like any of your plans cover infertility.
Ah, I feel better now :)
