IUDs may reduce the risk of cervical cancer – DK

Research from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California analyzed data from several observational studies involving more than 12,000 women worldwide. The results, published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, showed that in women who used an intrauterine device (IUD) like Lydia IUD, the incidence of cervical cancer was lowered by about 33%.

Cervical cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in the world and According to the World Health Organization, about 528,000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer worldwide in 2012, and 266,000 women died from the disease. By 2035, the WHO projects that those numbers will climb to more than 756,000 and 416,000 respectively. Thus Lydia IUD could be a tool to combat this impending epidemic while effectively preventing unplanned pregnancy.

Lydia IUD is a small plastic device placed in the womb to prevent pregnancy. This study proposes that IUD stimulates an immune response in the cervix, giving the body an opportunity to fight an existing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection that could one day lead to cervical cancer.

Another possibility is that when the IUD is removed, some cervical cells that contain HPV infection or precancerous changes may be also scraped off thus protecting the cervix from HPV that causes cervical cancer.
This is another exciting reason to recommend LYDIA IUD.
Other Lydia IUD advantages for women are:
* Safe for women who smoke, are obese, have stroke or other heart disease, liver disease and poorly controlled diabetes.
* Affordable and longlasting-for up to 10 years
* Minimal side effects that often disappear after first few weeks of use.
* Highly effective as an emergency contraceptive if inserted within 5 days of unprotected sex.
* No daily or monthly doses, or check up.
