10. Not true. Birth Control pills are prescribed for conditions that involve excessive bleeding
during menstruation. Also used in treatment of endometriosis. Also used in treatment of some endocrine diseases.

I know, because I had to get a prescription for it filled when I was 50 and the doctor had to verify to my insurance company that it was for a medical condition and not for pregnancy prevention. Interestingly, my insurance would've covered the most expensive delivery, C-section, and post-natal care. A complicated pregnancy, delivery and premature baby hospitalizations can easily exceed $500,000. That would cover a lot of birth control.

I don't understand their "Risk management" logic
