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