Abstract

In 2014/15, slightly more than a third of women using sexual and reproductive
health services for contraception (excluding those who were only seeking
advice) were using some type of long-acting reversible contraceptive or LARC
(Health and Social Care Information Centre, 2015). In general practice, despite
an initiative to encourage prescription of LARCs, the proportion of women
using these methods may well be lower (Arrowsmith et al., 2014). Many of the
women using LARCs will have been fitted with an intrauterine contraceptive
device (IUCD): either a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system or a
copper intrauterine device.
