 IUD Implants for Teens may be a Good Idea to Avoid Teen Pregnancy

In the face of the report that one-third of teenagers are sexually active, it is time for parents to think about how they can protect their teenage daughters from pregnancy.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has recommended IUD implants in sexually active girls.

This device has been found to be 99% effective in avoiding pregnancy. IUD's have been found to be good for teens, as they are not good with taking birth control pills or insisting on the use of a condom.

Although IUD's are good at preventing pregnancy, users must be aware of the side effects like headaches, nausea and cramps.

It is also important to know that IUD's cannot protect against transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
