IUDs linked to lower risk of cervical cancer
Women who use intrauterine devices (IUDs) for contraception might have a lower risk of cervical cancer than their counterparts who don’t use this form of birth control, a recent study published on Obstetrics & Gynecology suggests. Researchers examined data from 16 previously published studies with a total 4,945 women who had cervical cancer and 7,537 women who didn’t. Overall, they found women who used an IUD were 36% less likely to get cervical cancer than women who didn’t use them.
