IUDs cut risk of cervical cancer by one-third

For many years the IUD has been a very scary thing. These devices might be extremely effective in reducing the risk of developing cervical cancer, as those women who use them have a risk about a third lower than those who opt for other methods.

A promising study about the third cancer most common among women. Moreover, cervical cancer is characterized by the abnormal growth of cancerous cells in the tissues of the cervix. However, many parents do not because they are not comfortable with the idea of there children even thinking about sex at that age, despite the long-term benefits.

Firstly, none of the women had received an HPV vaccine.

The study's lead author Doctor Victoria Cortessis, of the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, said: "The pattern we found was stunning". "It stands to reason the IUD might influence other immune phenomenon". "It was not subtle at all", Cortessis said.

How IUDs are reducing the chance of cervical cancer is the question.

How Do Women Get Cervical Cancer?

One possibility is that IUDs might trigger an immune response that would help the body fight human papillomavirus (HPV) infections that can cause cervical cancer, Cortessis said by email.

The investigators found 16 high-quality studies that could be combined to provide an expanded picture of the risk of cervical cancer for women using an IUD.

Even so, the results suggest it's worth continuing to research the potential for IUDs to help prevent cervical cancer, said Dr. Michelle Moniz, an obstetrics and gynecology researcher at the University of MI in Ann Arbor who wasn't involved in the study.

You may be wondering how women get cervical cancer in the first place.

Now this news does not mean that parents shouldn't vaccinate their children or women should forsake their regular pap smear. The protective effect did not appear to be due to confounding by risk factors or publication bias, according to the authors. Hopefully, this discovery will help people invest more into treating HPV once it is in the body and eliminating it completely.

"It raises the need for further research to be done to see if that is in fact the case", said Dr. Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society. This way, whenever such a device is removed from the uterus, it takes these cells with it. It's a small piece of flexible plastic shaped like a T. Sometimes it's called an IUC - intrauterine contraception. The devices can be used for several years, and can prevent pregnancy by impeding the fertilization.

An IUD is a safe and effective form of contraception, but using one offers no guarantee against cervical cancer.

Secondly, the study was not able to investigate associations between the type of IUD (hormonal or copper), the duration of use, age when the IUD was fitted or access to preventative healthcare.

While serious problems are rare it is important that you pay attention to any serious pains and bring it to the attention of your OBGYN.

An IUD will also not protect you against sexually transmitted infections.
