This contraception can cut cancer risk by 33%

CBS News reported yesterday that the IUD may "reduce a woman's risk of cervical cancer by about a third".

A recent study revealed a great benefit for women who use intrauterine devices (IUDs) as method of contraception. The Definitive Guide to Women's Intimate Health, tells Bustle.

The ParaGuard also works as an emergency birth control if inserted within 5 days after unprotected sex it is 99.9% effective. The data included almost 5,000 women who developed cervical cancer and just over 7,500 women who did not.

Women who use an intrauterine device for birth control may have a lower risk of developing cervical cancer, according to a new review and meta-analysis. And since the 2016 election, IUD demand has spiked 900 percent.

"Even if the rate of cervical cancer remains steady, the actual number of women with cervical cancer is poised to explode", Cortessis said in a statement. "It was not subtle at all", said the study's lead author, Victoria Cortessis, PhD, associate professor of clinical preventive medicine at the Keck School.

"The possibility that a woman could experience some help with cancer control at the same time she is making contraception decisions could potentially be very, very impactful", said Cortessis. Now, unfortunately, even people who get the vaccine can get cervical cancer, but it lowers the chances dramatically.

Cervical cancer is usually a slow developing type of cancer which may or may not exhibit symptoms of the disease.

Cervical cancer is highly preventable particularly in Western countries where screening tests and a vaccine to prevent HPV infections are available. This means they can not yet tell what keeps the cancer risk away.

"One important conclusion that can be drawn from this study is that there is no associated increased risk of cervical cancer with IUD use", Sawaya said by email. Understanding the mechanism of action behind the protective effect of IUDs is the next logical step, Cortessis says. The presence of the IUD in the uterus and cervical canal might also cause an immune response. "That means for decades to come this epidemic of cervical cancer is with us".

Another possibility is that when women have the devices removed, precancerous cells are scraped away that might otherwise grow into tumors.

"This new study allows us to now add another incredible benefit, which includes reducing the risk of cervical cancer", Dr. Ross says.

She said that it could be that these IUDs trigger an immune response that ends up strengthening the body to fight a viral infection caused by human papillomavirus (HPV).

Dr. Michael Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine and co-author of The Sexual Spark: 20 Essential Exercises to Reignite the Passion, agrees about the benefits of IUDs.

As randomised controlled trials would be unethical when looking at the risk of cervical cancer, this review was mostly based on case-control studies.
