Give me my drugs!

Today, my doctor's office called to reschedule. I hate sacrificing work time at all, but I have to have my contraceptive. The appointment had been set back once already due to insurance issues, and having to wait until November means I'm going to run out… so now I sound like a drug addict. FML

Call the doctor and/or pharmacy and they’ll usually give you enough to get by.

Not even close to drug addict behavior. You need this for your body as either a contraceptive, or for heavy/irregular periods, or whatever you use it for.

I also hate when docs make you go to appointments for refills. I feel like it’s a scam for them to get more insurance money. It’s annoying and yes often gets in the way of work.

Agreed! It's such a waste of time going in for just a refill. It's not like my circumstances have changed. Due to the pandemic, my doctor says I can have my pharmacy fax in my prescription renewal.

Contraceptives are used for more than just birth control; even then, you have no right to judge. Educate yourself and don't ever make such an ignorant comment again.

If you happen to have a gap in taking them just remember you need to take them a whole month before they become effective again. It might also be easier for you to set up a subscription plan. But heat usually makes them go bad and idk how hot they get in the delivery process.
