Here’s why many women are planning on getting an IUD immediately

We know that a lot will change once Donald Trump is sworn in as president of the United States. And while we don’t know what promises he’ll end up making “good” on, we do know that during the campaign he was vocal about the fact he plans on repealing Obamacare as one of his first acts as president — and that has some women online suggesting we all go out and get IUDs — right. now.

Under Obamacare, plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace are required to cover a variety of contraceptive methods, including birth control pills and rings, diaphragms and sponges — and Twitter is overflowing with tweets like the ones below because IUDs are notoriously expensive without insurance — they can cost up to $1,000 out-of-pocket — and plenty of women will be priced out if Obamacare is repealed and their insurers stop covering this long-acting reversible contraceptive. false
