Not Your Mother's IUD Benefits and Risks of Modern Iuds Women's Health Activist read online review & book description:

I HAD AN INTRAUTERINE DEVICES (IUD) IN THE 70s, when a feminist outcry exposed serious problems caused by the Dalkon Shield IUD, including infertility, uterine perforation, and death. The Dalkon Shield was removed from the market and its manufacturer declared bankruptcy after paying millions of dollars in malpractice settlements. So, I was skeptical when a young feminist told me she loved her IUD and said: "For my generation, IUDs represent freedom and empowerment." What had happened in the 40 years between my experience and hers, I wondered? Had the IUD really been transformed? What I found when I looked into these questions was not simple.
