Birth Control Insurance Coverage

Got Vagina?  Your vagina deserves proper health care coverage!

I don’t care if you have a Republican elephant or a Democratic donkey stamped on your vagina – your vagina deserves proper health care coverage! I don’t care if your vagina lives in a blue state or a red state or a purple state – your vagina deserves proper health care coverage!   I don’t care what color your vagina is – your vagina deserves proper health care coverage! I don’t care what country of origin your vagina is  – your vagina deserves proper health care coverage! I don’t care what religion your vagina practices (or doesn’t practice) –  your vagina deserves proper health care coverage!  I don’t care who your vagina sleeps with  – your vagina deserves proper health care coverage!

Birth control pills should be covered and available to all women.  The birth control pill has many uses that are important such as family planning, controlling endometriosis, acne issues, menstrual cramps,  Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI),  and as a hormone therapy option for menopausal women. Take a minute and read Christine’s story about her POI (premature menopause) expereince.

Make no mistake about it, women need to have birth control pills covered by their health insurance!  Our vaginas deserve proper health care coverage in the same unrestricted way that men’s penises receive coverage for medication dealing with Erectile Dysfunction.   As Chelsea says in her Netflix video below, “Getting hard is easy, getting birth control isn’t.”

Vaginas Unite!  We need to join together, speak up, and stand up, against this discriminatory regulatory infringement upon our health care rights.  Email and call your congressmen and senators to express opposition to these changes.

Are you with me?  If so, what are you doing about it?

Remember:  Suffering in silence is OUT!  Reaching out is IN.

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.

    Thank you. Vaginal health is vital. Plus it’s beneficial to ALL parties. If women are taken care of (birth control, exams, HRT, menopausal symptoms, Mona Lisa, etc), their men will be rewarded as well. It’s a win-win. Insurance companies need to be pressured to service half the population.

    • This administration needs to stop pulling back the regulations that provide needed health care for women.

  • No words. We have regressed.

    • It breaks my heart that we are having to fight for basic health needs for women.

    A-men!! As mother to three daughters, I agree wholeheartedly.

  • It’s heartbreaking to see all the moves we made forward starting in the 70’s get erased in the last year. We may as well be living in the 50’s wearing aprons and being subservient little dishrags. With you all the way!

    • So true, Rebecca. I just can’t stay silent when it comes to this!

  • It surprises me that such an advanced society takes so many backward steps – I hope things improve in the future!

    • Totally agree, Leanne. It is scary. We must keep actively speaking out and voting!

  • Lois Alter Mark

    What the Republicans are doing to healthcare in general and women’s healthcare specifically is despicable, infuriating and inexcusable. We must keep resisting, persisting and fighting.

    • I agree, Lois. I never ever post political blogs on my website. To me, this is a women’s issue. I tried to make that point in the blog. But, I must tell you that beginning early this morning so many women have unsubscribed to my blog :,(. I am saddened that we can’t even come together on this one issue. It truly breaks my heart. I am worried that we have become complacent and our basic human rights are being systematically taken away.

  • You are right Ellen! Legislation cannot regress to back alley abortions while men can get ED drugs paid for on their health plan!!! I will email my senator, Ron Wyden, reminding him I have supported him since his very first race and I know he agrees with me but he will get another email just to refresh his memory on this issue.

    • That is great, Haralee! Keep holding your Senator accountable!
