An unplanned pregnancy changes your life. It leaves you with the decision to keep, to abort, or to carry for adoption. Whichever decision is made will likely stay with you forever. Intrauterine devices (IUD) and Intrauterine systems (IUS), are 99% effective at birth control. They have been recognized as the most effective method of reversible birth control. Recently, the Canadian Pediatric association recommends IUD/IUS as the best option for teen birth control. I recommend IUD/ IUS as the best option for fertile women of all ages.
I’ve been offering ultrasound guided IUD/IUS insertions for the past 6 years at IHC. I encourage you to call and book a phone screening to determine which IUD/ IUS is best for you. Please contact the IHC receptionist via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 604-888-8325, option #2.
