Study: IUD Insertions Went Up After Trump’s Election
A STUDY FINDS THAT IUD INSERTIONS WENT UP AFTER TRUMP'S ELECTION
(CNN) – A new study found a bump in one form of birth control use after the 2016 presidential election.
According to researchers, more women asked for implants and intrauterine devices often called IUD’s in the month after the election.
Their paper was published in the journal Jama Internal Medicine on Monday.
The researchers focused on women who received health insurance from their employers.
They say the move towards IUD’s could have been due to president Trump’s opposition to the Affordable Care Act.
The women may have feared a loss in contraceptive coverage required by the ACA.
But researchers admit the study has flaws and there could be other factors in the increase.
