    It's full of sugar!! The advert for it made me absolutely facepalm.
    The rest of the ingredient list is pretty horrific. Loaded with sugar and soy--what a genius idea.

    It sounds pretty iffy to me:

    I'm pretty sure that's what my OB's office quoted me after speaking with the insurance company. We have blue cross blue shield as well. Must be a freaky Alabama religious thing? They literally don't cover a single form of birth control.

    Wow that's odd. I don't understand why they wouldn't cover anything and why it would be so expensive. I'm sorry

    I saw a similar commercial with an elderly man, where he says that he wasn't eating well and his *nutritionist* daughter recommended drinking Ensure or something similar (can't remember the exact brand) to make up for the nutrients he was missing out on. Now I understand that sometimes, if someone has a compromised ability to eat, a liquid meal replacement might be the only option, but on what planet is a produce with "soy oil" better than getting your nutrients from a real food, like an egg or a piece of chicken?!?!

    Funny, because I got my Mirena for hormone problems I was having. In order for the insurance to cover it, my doc had to list it as "birth control" even though I wasn't using it for that.

    I lived with one for two years. I finally gave up. Too painful. I was either cramping or spotting or both half the time. I tried Mirena which has a low dose of progesterone. That made my periods lighter but I kept expelling them. Part of this is likely that my uterus is small, borderline for having an IUD at all. If I could have tolerated the Paraguard that would've been great but now it's back to condoms.

    Ugh, I could call myself a nutritionist if I really wanted to. Dietician is the term for someone properly qualified to give advice.

    These substitute things are rubbish.
