The intrauterine device in the present and future.

Rivera, Roberto I-cheng Chi; Farr, Gaston

Abstract

Good counseling and better selection of candidates would result in the intrauterine device's (IUD) safer use. Age and parity of the IUD acceptor do not seem to be associated with an increased risk of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). The newer generation of copper- and hormone-releasing IUDs are associated with improved safety and efficacy.
