ABSTRACT
This editorial comments on the two uterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) available to most women who seek birth control without chemicals. Studies show that most women who stop using IUDs do so because of heavy bleeding and pain during menstruation. The author says that this form of birth control is underused outside of China and believes that may be in part to the public experience with the Dalkon Shield in the 1970s and outdated stories about uterine infections.
