IUDs Regaining Popularity

More women in Northern Colorado are asking for Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) for birth control. This trend is reflected nationwide. There are several reasons why.

IUDs are safe, convenient, and effective for birth control. They provide continuous birth control for several years. And they are easily removed if you decide the time is right to have a child.

IUDs were once used only for women done having children.  Today’s IUDs may be safely used by women of all ages and stages. Proper care must be taken when your healthcare provider places the IUD. You must also remember IUDs do not protect against infections passed sexually.

IUDs more than 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy and are a especially good birth control method if you want to avoid pregnancy for a year or more.  Talk to the healthcare providers at NOCO Women’s Wellness for more information.
