Default Old School Contraception

So, my insurance won't cover birth control. Doesn't seem like a smart financial move, since it covers pregnancy and childbirth almost completely, but hey, whatever.

I recently stumbled across a home recipe for birth control in Pliny's Natural History (29.27.85). Feel free to try it out.

tertium genus est eodem phalangi nomine araneus lanuginosus, grandissimo capite, quo dissecto inveniri intus dicuntur vermiculi duo adalligatique mulieribus pelle cervina ante solis ortum praestare, ne concipiant

"There is also a third type of phalangium, a hairy spider with an enormous head. When this is cut open, there are said to be found inside two little worms, which, having been attached to women in deer skin before sunrise, ensure that they do not conceive."

Anyone know where I can find a tarantula?

Or you could try Archaea's version of Old School contraception . . . abstinence.

My insurance doesn't cover birth control, either! What's up with that? How have you gotten around it, or are you just paying the uninsured price like me?

Seriously, the BYU student insurance is atrocious anyway, and the noncoverage of contraceptives is probably somebody's not so subtle statement against them.

One word: Trojan. No bitchy side effects and it makes for an easy clean up.

Get a couple of boxes and hide them in the car and everywhere else and you're good to go for a couple of weeks.

coitus interruptus is the best form to create parents.

69 is a great form of birth control.

Health insurance doesn't cover fresh fruit, vegetables, vitamin pills, natural spring water, and lots of other things.

It's called lifestyle choices. You'll be happier when you realize that, instead of complaining about it.

I don't know if it's accurate to equate noncoverage of vegetables to a prescription oral contraceptive. And it's not uncommon for insurances to cover contraceptives.
