Morning after pill 'less reliable' for women over 11 stone
Conclusion Overall the FSRH guideline gives additional clarity around the different types of emergency contraception that should be selected in different circumstances. These recommendations are based on the best level of evidence and expert understanding to date. However, they may change in the future as more evidence comes to light. In particular, related to the issue of weight on the effectiveness of oral emergency contraception, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) concluded in 2014 that the available evidence "was limited and not robust enough to support with certainty a conclusion that oral emergency contrac...

Conclusions The quality standard emphasises best medical practice on this issue – women requesting emergency contraception should be advised on the benefits of the copper coil or IUD for several reasons. Namely, it being the method: with the lowest failure rate that can be used up to five days after sex that provides a long-acting ongoing method of contraception Despite the IUD's known effectiveness and benefits, in 2014/15, the vast majority of emergency contraception issued by sexual and reproductive health services was for the morning-after pill.

The Truth About Sex After Menopause
When I started my blog in May 2014, I had been re-singled for a year-and-a-half after a long marriage. I was dating up a storm and feeling at the top of my game intellectually, sexually, and simply as an empowered woman in the world. My experience ran counter to the conventional wisdom that women lose their desirability once they're of a certain age. So I decided to spread the word that midlife sexuality could be a bountiful time for women as long as they don't buy into the myth that they're going to be exiled to Crone Land. But when I read a piece in HuffPost last month, written by a 60-year-old woman who reported a decli...

FDA Approves New Kind Of IUD, Can Be Used For Up To Three Years
(Adds executive comment; background) By Samantha Kareen Nair and Natalie Grover Feb 27 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a hormonal contraceptive device on Friday that gives American women another reversible contraceptive choice as effective as sterilization. The intrauterine device (IUD) device, Liletta, releases the hormone levonorgestrel to inhibit thickening of the womb lining, preventing pregnancy for up to three years. Typically smaller than an iPod Shuffle, the IUD is a t-shaped piece of plastic that must be inserted into the uterus to prevent fertilization. ...

8 Women Share What It's Like Switching To An IUD
Intrauterine devices are one of the most effective forms of reversible birth control, but few American women use them. That, however, is starting to change: The percentage of women using IUDs has grown rapidly in recent years as new products have come onto the market and as more doctors recommend women consider them. Recent government reports show that over 6 percent of women -- and over 11 percent of women ages 25 to 34 -- now use IUDs to prevent pregnancy. Those are small numbers, but the share of women who have IUDs is still nearly double what it was just five years ago. To find out more about the reasons IUD use is on...

The IUD Is Getting More Popular In America. Here's Why
A birth control method that works more than 99 percent of the time is making a comeback after all but disappearing from America in the 1980s and 1990s. The intrauterine device, or IUD, was the contraceptive of choice for 6.4 percent of American women aged 15-44 from 2011 to 2013, according to a report published Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Though the IUD, a small, T-shaped device implanted in the uterus, is far behind more popular methods of birth control like the pill or condoms, the share of women using one nearly doubled from 2006 to 2010, and is dramatically higher than the less than 1 pe...
