Abstract

Worldwide, use of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) has easily overtaken oral contraceptive use, now with double the prevalence.(1) Rates of LARC (defined as subdermal implants, intrauterine contraceptives and injectables) use are twice as high in the developing world as in the developed world.(1) There are many reasons for this increasing use of LARC, some to do with potential users and some to do with advocates of LARC.
