Ironic Product Placement: Teen Mom 2 sponsored by Mirena?

In case you missed it last night on Teen Mom 2, Kailyn sought out birth control from some beady-eyed OBGYN.  During the course of the episode, the word Mirena was uttered no less than 7 times. Mirena was mentioned thrice by the Doc and Kailyn and once by new boyfriend Jordan as if under coercion.We’re not talking about the word IUD, we’re talking specifically about the peppering of the pharmaceutical brand name “Mirena.”  Coincidence or profitable product placement?  The exam and “insertion” ran like a 5 minute commercial shoved into the show.  Did Kailyn get a free IUD in return for her enthusiasm?Marketing a long-term hormone based contraception to teenage girls is an interesting choice considering their high risk for contracting an STD during unprotected sex.  Personal opinion only here: keep the hormones and the foreign devices out of your body and keep the wenis wrapped.
