    AAPC: Back to School
    I posted this on the OB/GYN board with no responses yet... wonder if anyone has an suggestions?

    GYN fits patient with a Diaphragm (57170) for her to use as Menstral cup.

    What DX should I use with this?

    How about V53.99, fitting and adjustment of other device?

    The purpose of the diaphragm is no longer contraception, it is hygiene.
