Extended use of LARC: FSRH Review

Source: FSRH

The FSRH CEU have reviewed the LARC extended use recommendations published as the COVID-19 pandemic started.

Due to the associated health risk when COVID-19 transmission was at its highest, extended use of LARC was recommended. However, the FSRH CEU now recommends that there is insufficient evidence to support a change in the usual recommendations and as access to LARC fittings improves, we should revert to usual advice about length of device use.
