Leave the intrauterine device!
Despite recent improvements in contraceptive options, almost half (45%) of pregnancies in the United States remain unintended and only 60% of reproductive aged women are using contraception. The use of intrauterine devices (IUDs) among females ages 20–34 years old has doubled during the past decade. Concurrently, the unintended pregnancy rates are near historic lows in this patient population, thus highlighting the importance of effective, long acting reversible contraception (1). At the same time, there has been a dramatic increase in patients undergoing fertility preservation, particularly in this demographic.
