IUDs, implants urged for teen girls' birth control

There are 10 comments on the WINK-TV Fort Myers story from Sep 20, 2012, titled IUDs, implants urged for teen girls' birth control. In it, WINK-TV Fort Myers reports that:

Teenage girls may prefer the pill, the patch or even wishful thinking, but their doctors should be recommending IUDs or hormonal implants - long-lasting and more effective birth control that you don't have to remember to use every time, the nation's leading gynecologists group said Thursday.

Great, it can destroy their fertility! This is a terrible mistake. This is what happens when the government becomes the parent. It is acceptable risk to lose so many to bad outcomes. A parent on the other hand seeks to do what is best for their child. And weighs the risk to their child..

This is a wonderful idea we got our girls implanted with IUC's (some people say IUD) when they were in middle school and beginning to progress past handy jobs and BJ's. And if it does end up in permanent sterility, well that's good they don't have to go through the surgery and expense of getting their tubes tied later on!

It's choosing between the lesser of two evils: the consequences of early and unintended pregnancy or the long-term effects of contraceptives. The best decision isn't always the easy one. It's best to have a medical professional at your side when making decisions like these for a well-guided choice.

They often say that IUD is not suitable for women who have no child yet. This is because that the opening of the cervix is still narrow. However, recent analysis says that IUD is safe to use in women, with or without child. Moreover, women may need to be aware of its potential health complications. Serious side effects pushed women to file lawsuits over Mirena IUD. I have read a lot about Mirena information on side effects, which may be found at www.basearticles.com/Author/159306/Stacey-Coo... . Anyway, you may also find it in Google by search Mirena lawsuit.

IUD is often recommended to women with at least one child. However, this is a misconception because women, especially teens, can use IUD, which is a long-term contraceptive. However, this may cause some minor and major side effects. The most rare and most serious side effect is the perforation of the uterus. By typing-in Mirena lawsuit in Google, you may find some information about the potential side effects of Mirena.

There are indeed different opinions regarding this but it is always important to remember the health and safety of the one using it. Although I have read at http://ashlyburgess.wordpress.com/2013/01/18/... that there might be some safety issues with much younger girls using contraceptives. Parents do need to weigh the risks and benefits.

IUDs are one of the most popular forms of birth controls due to its fuss-free and long-term effectiveness in preventing pregnancy. It may be used for as long as five years. However, there is a risk for uterine perforation and pelvic inflammatory disease which led to a number lawsuits. If you want to know more about Mirena and its side effects, key-in "Mirena lawsuit" in Google or refer at www.mirenalawsuit.us/fda-reports-thousands-of... for more related information.

My wife and I have a friend who's a doctor, and he implanted our oldest girl with that when she injured her tweens and started acting like a girl it didn't take her long to get rid of that virginity (we are raising our girls knowing that virginity is not something you "lose" but just something to get over and get rid of so you don't have to worry about it anymore) so yes, getting that thing down there made baby-safe is a lot better than having the baby! I'm telling them to 'just say no' is just not realistic, nor is it good advice. It causes them to miss the best most sexually adventurous years of their life!
