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.Learning outcomes
