HI Doc

I have had two children and have decided not to have anymore
I am on medical aid (disovery) and between my two kids i used the Mirena loop the problem now is that i would like the same loop but the medical aid doesnt cover the cost anymore,
is there an alternative that is as safe. I dont want to take the pill as i forget..

Sterilisation is an option. Otherwise you could use the injectable.

Best wishes

Discovery only pays for the Mirena out of the Medical Savings Account, or when you are in the above-threshold benefit, depending which plan you are on.
They paid for my Mirena last year.

Hi V,

I was on discovery medical aid and they covered my Mierena cost this year. I had mine inserted on the 10 August 2006, my pharmacist advised me the discovery is the only medical aid that does cover the merina.

Good Luck!
