Recommend an IUD or Implant for Teens BEFORE Other Contraceptive Methods
The approval of Liletta (LYE-let-uh) will raise questions about when to recommend an intrauterine device (IUD) for contraception.
IUDs are a first-line contraception option. But less than 5% of women use them...partly due to misconceptions about safety.
Help put these myths to rest. Explain that IUDs do NOT increase the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease...or ectopic pregnancies.
