Long-Acting Reversible Contraception: An Important Solution to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy.

Related Articles Long-Acting Reversible Contraception: An Important Solution to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy. Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2017 Mar 08;: Authors: Nelson AL, Kaunitz AM Abstract This event was neither sponsored nor endorsed by ACOG. Despite the availability of numerous contraceptive options, almost half of all pregnancies in the United States are unintended, creating a substantial negative health and socioeconomic burden on women and their families (Online access: http://courses.elseviercme.com/acog16/656e). The most commonly used contraceptives are dependent on adherence and "perfect use" to be efficacious, while long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) offer the lowest failure rates primarily because they are user-independent. Greater use of the highly effective LARCs may provide one solution to the persistent problem of unplanned pregnancies and improve women's and children's health.
