Hi Everyone,

I had my Mirena inserted at a Womens Clinic in Melbourne and paid $250 out of pocket. It my fault for not checking properly, but I assumed I would get something back.

Not happy Jan, not exactly swimming in money this time of year!!!

Had mine inserted a year ago at Marie Stopes in Sydney and paid about the same.

I had mine done privately, by the OB that delivered DS - and it was $100 out of pocket for the procedure plus $30 for the mirena. However, I didn't have to have an initial consultation because she already knew me and my history.  The follow-up appointment to check for placement and side-effects was bulk-billed. I was told of the costs when I booked in, so I had plenty of warning.

It's much better value long term than the Pill! But it's really annoying when you don't know up front and when it comes at a bad time of year.
