Abstract

Concerns have been raised about progestin-containing contraceptives and risk of HIV acquisition. Based on health insurance data from 622,565 women in the U.S. with intrauterine device (IUD) insertions during 2011-2018, there was no increased risk of incident HIV diagnosis among women using levonorgestrel-releasing IUDs compared with those using copper IUDs.

KEYWORDS:

copper intrauterine devices; hormone releasing intrauterine devices; human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); intrauterine devices (IUDs); long-acting reversible contraception
