Decreased libido The SPC lists this as a common adverse effect of the LNG-IUS, but the FSRH states that women should be advised that existing evidence fails to support a negative effect on libido associated with IUC use [ FSRH, 2019a ; ABPI, 2021 ] IUD expulsion was a risk factor for failure, odds ratio (OR) 3.31 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1.4-7.8]. Thonneau et al.6 also published a review article in 2001 that looked at risk factors for IUD failure. They commented that displacement of the IUD reduces effectiveness but this was based solely on the data from the Anteby et al. paper.3 Moschos and Twickler7 published a retrospectively.
The sample surveyed during the FSRH conference may not be representative of health professionals who insert IUDs in the UK or the prevalence of LA use for IUD insertion across the UK's health services.

An intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) is a small device made from plastic and copper which sits inside the womb (uterus). It is also known as the coil.

Introduction The intrauterine device (IUD) and intrauterine system (IUS) are widely used forms of long-acting reversible contraception. Occasionally, IUD/IUS users have an ultrasound scan that shows a low-lying IUD/IUS or an IUD/IUS is found incidentally on scan to be low-lying within the uterus.

February 2021 — reviewed The FSRH advises that although the clinical relevance of this interaction in terms of potential reduction in effectiveness is unknown, a Cu-IUD should be recommended for women using enzyme-inducing drugs if the criteria for use are met, as the Cu-IUD is unaffected by liver enzyme induction.
