    Help IUD birth control

    Advertisements
    I am enrolled in prime. It will start at the begining of next month. I would really like to get on a "permanent" birth control. Does prime cover IUD's? Do I have to see my primary care person and get a referral to an OBGYN to get the appointment covered? I am new, so any direction would be nice

    Yes they cover it. I'm not sure who to call since I have gotten it right after having a baby. I'd just call the appointment line and tell them what you need.

    Many tricare providers wont give it to you unless you have a child though so make sure you ask around.

    I already have one kid, and I think I am done "having" kids. I don't want to do anything really permanent yet though, DH and I are still done. We are pretty sure that if our family needs to get bigger it will be through adoption.

    IUDs are covered. You'll have some choices: Mirena (pr equivalent) or Paragard-- Paragard has very few hormones, but Mirena has a bunch. Talk to your primary provider and they'll help you out further.
