Summary of "Use of Intrauterine Devices and Risk of HIV Acquisition among Insured Women in the U.S."

Concerns have been raised about progestin-containing contraceptives and risk of HIV acquisition. Based on health insurance data from 622,565 women in the U.S. with intrauterine device (IUD) insertions during 2011-2018, there was no increased risk of incident HIV diagnosis among women using levonorgestrel-releasing IUDs compared with those using copper IUDs.
