Let Patients Know That IUDs are Covered Under the Affordable Care Act
More women will use LONG-acting contraceptives...IUDs (Mirena, ParaGard, Skyla) or progestin implants (Nexplanon).
A common misconception is that IUDs should be saved for women who have had kids...due to concerns about infertility or pelvic infections.
But the newer IUDs are NOT linked to a higher risk of infertility in women...including teens. And pelvic infections with IUDs are RARE.
