The birth control pill continues to be the most popular form of contraception among women, but there have been some new advances. Ob-gyn, Dr. Rebecca Brightman, gives a rundown on what’s new in female contraception. Starting with IUD’s, intrauterine devices, Dr. Brightman says today’s IUD’s are drastically different from a generation ago, and their use is on the rise. She discusses two IUD’s currently on the market. One is hormone free, and good for 10 years. The other contains hormones and is effective for up to 5 years. Dr. Brightman says a new IUD will soon be available. The new IUD, pending FDA approval, will contain a lower dose of hormones, have a smaller configuration, and will be good for up to three years. Dr. Brightman also explains the differences among birth control pills on the market, and how there's no such thing as the perfect pill.
