Most women misunderstand IUD birth control

In particular, many of the study participants didn’t know that IUDs are more effective contraceptives than the birth control pill and that the devices don’t increase the risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease.

"It’s not clear whether women have an overly optimistic view of the effectiveness of the birth control pill or an overly pessimistic view of the IUD,” said Dr. Lisa Callegari, the study’s lead author and a clinical assistant professor at the University of Washington.
