Recommending IUDs for Women
Dr. Barry Littlejohn M.D. believes that Intrauterine devices, IUDs, are the best form of contraception for women that are available. Dr. Barry Littlejohn M.D. has this to say on IUDs: “While only six percent of women in America have an IUD, more than forty percent off female OB/GYN [physicians] have them.” This percentage of professionals using them would place an IUD as one of the most recommend forms of birth control in all of American medicine.
Dr. Barry Littlejohn M.D. says that it is easy for a woman to get an IUD. The price range is vast, depending on the type that is purchased, which can be either plastic or copper. The cost of an IUD is between $0 and $1000. However, the lifespan of an IUD is between three and twelve years. If a woman opts to purchase a low-cost plastic IUD, the device can last from three to five years long. If the woman decides that she would like to invest more in the device, and purchase one made of copper, she would be choosing a device with a lifespan of over twelve years. The total cost, which is over a thousand dollars, would make the monthly cost a mere seven dollars. Though it is a long upfront cost, it pays off over time in its lifespan.
Dr. Barry Littlejohn M.D. highly recommends this form of birth control for women. An IUD is currently the most effective form of birth control and is at a considerably cheap price, albeit a seemingly large upfront cost, once considering the lifespan of the device.
