Relevance to General Practice

IUDs are an important method of Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARCs). They reduce unintended pregnancy rates and have demonstrated high patient acceptability and safety across the reproductive age-span. As most women seek contraception services from their GP, it is important that GPs and practice nurses have the confidence and skills to safely undertake IUD insertion and management of IUD-related issues in their own practice.
