IUDs are safe for teenagers

(April 8, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Texas - A new report published in Obstetrics & Gynecology finds that IUDs are as safe for teenagers as they are for adults. Researchers studied the insurance claims from nearly 90,000 IUD users aged 15-44, reviewing any complications, failures, or discontinuation of the devices. They found that serious complications from the IUD only occurred in less than 1% of the women, regardless of their age. As well, early discontinuation of the devices was similar for older and younger women.
