IUDs: Safe and Effective

IUDs, or intra-uterine devices, are becoming increasingly popular in gynecology in Washington, D.C. Watch this video to learn why this birth control device is both safe and effective for many women.

A gynecologist recommends IUDs for healthy women of all ages who would like to prevent pregnancy. An IUD does not ward off vaginal infection or STDs and is only effective in preventing pregnancy. An IUD may be suggested for women who prefer not to take the birth control pill or who have had negative side effects from birth control pills or patches.

To learn whether an IUD or the traditional birth control pill is right for you, contact a gynecologist with The Washington Surgi-Clinic . You can reach us at (202) 659-9403.
