Her research was the focus of a Healio article on the effectiveness of the IUD after 5 years
Dr. Stephanie Teal’s research, which was presented at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists annual meeting, evaluated the 5-year pregnancy rates of more than 1,700 women who had a successful placement of the intrauterine device Liletta. Dr. Teal and her colleagues determined the contraceptive, which is the type of intrauterine device (IUD) that uses the hormone progestin, resulted in a cumulative pregnancy rate of less than 1 percent.
“Primary care providers can feel confident that the Liletta intrauterine system continues to be safe and effective after 5 years,” Dr. Teal said in the Healio article.
