All About IUDs

Quick Hit — for anyone who hasn’t seen it already, we have a great piece up (not to toot out own horn) on IUDs over at RH Reality Check. It actually had an interesting genesis — there had been a lot of good coverage of IUDs in the press lately, bringing out a lot of women who shared their own experiences with IUDs (and of how their doctors refused to put one in).

While the piece, and Feministing’s subsequent coverage of it, is definitely worth a read, what I really found fascinating were all of the comments both pieces got. They ranged from women sharing their own horrific side effects to raving about how getting their IUDs were the best thing they’d ever done. I recommend reading all of it, especially if you’re considering getting the device. Rarely do you get such candid shots into individuals’ experiences with a form of birth control.
