Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) such as implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs) are effective methods of birth control. These methods are safe and effective, yet underutilized. This provider toolkit is designed to provide up-to-date resources and information for ob/gyns to guide patients in areas such as immediate post-partum LARC, and birth control for adolescents and what makes the most sense.

Birth Control
Awareness and use of contraceptive methods

Awareness of most types of birth control was generally high among both white and non-white women, according to a prospective study that examined racial differences in contraceptive awareness and use among women seeking care at family health centers.

IUD and risk of ovarian cancer

The ever-use of an intrauterine device (IUD) reduces the risk of ovarian cancer by an average of 30%, according to a rigorous meta-analysis in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
