Last week I talked about IUDs. But there are still a number of myths and misperceptions about them. I covered some of them in my last book, “Don’t Put That in There, and 69 other sex myths debunked“. But all of you didn’t buy the book. Not that you shouldn’t – you should! Go ahead! I’ll wait.
Even if you don’t, though, IUD myths are the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.
