Offer women IUDs, hormone shots after abortions: study

By Shereen Jegtvig NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Women who get an abortion may be interested in long-acting forms of birth control, but they might not come back for another visit to get them. A new study suggests offering women those types of contraception right away may lower the chance they’ll have another unintended pregnancy. Researchers wanted to see if offering women long-acting reversible contraception immediately after an abortion would mean more of them would opt to use it. Long-acting reversible contraception methods include intrauterine devices (IUDs), contraceptive implants inserted in the arm and hormone shots.
