The Affordable Healthcare Act, also commonly referred to as Obamacare, is a highly debated political issue. However, regardless of one’s political stance on the issue, there is no questioning this is going to make Healthcare more affordable. This is going to result in the number of medications being prescribed to go up, because people who wouldn’t have went to the doctor can now afford to as a result of being insured. This includes women that are looking for a doctor to provide them with a contraceptive method.
One of the more popular contraceptive devices being marketed right now is the Mirena IUD, marketed by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The passage of the Affordable Health Care act means that more women are going to elect to use the Mirena IUD because they can afford both the costs of a doctor’s visit and the medication. However, in this very specific instance, this is horrible news.
Mirena is an extremely dangerous product. Mirena is known to migrate from the uterus to other parts of the body, causing internal havoc and perforating organs as it moves. There are a number of women that have reported uterine perforations, bladder perforations, and intestine perforations. Some women have become barren as their medical complications forced them to have a complete hysterectomy. In some cases the device shattered requiring painful surgery after surgery to hunt for and remove each and every plastic shard. The dangers cannot be understated. Mirena, simply is not safe for women to use. As a result, countless women are coming forward and filing suit against Bayer Pharmaceuticals.
Unfortunately, the proliferation and expanded use of the Mirena IUD was an unintended and unfortunate consequence of an otherwise legitimate piece of legislation. This is far removed from politics. Rather, this is a critique of a dangerous medicine that is hurting people and destroying families.
