24. Never, but never, count on a doctor to get it right where contraception is concerned.

I had one doctor prescribe a NuvaRing for me. When he suggested it, I specifically reminded him of the medications I was taking and asked if that would be a problem. He said it wouldn't. I went home, read the prescribing information included with the NuvaRing and discovered that the med I was concerned about was mentioned, not just by drug category, but by its specific name, as something that would render the NuvaRing useless. And the drug was associated with birth defects, which is why I wanted contraception in the first place.
