Most women keep using IUDs, contraceptive implants

By Allison Bond NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – More than 90 percent of women who opt for long-term reversible forms of birth control keep using them for at least six months, a new study found. Those birth control methods include intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants. The findings mean most women did not have side effects, such as cramping or bleeding, that were serious enough for them to stop using their birth control. “There is the perception among healthcare providers that women discontinue these methods rapidly,” senior author Dr. Tessa Madden said.
