Long-acting reversible contraception
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
Contraception and principles of care
Women requiring contraception should be given information about and offered a choice of all methods, including long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods
Women should be provided with the method of contraception that is most acceptable to them, provided it is not contraindicated
Contraceptive service providers should be aware that:
all currently available LARC methods (intrauterine devices [IUDs], the intrauterine system [IUS], injectable contraceptives and implants) are more cost effective than the combined oral contraceptive pill even at 1 year of use
IUDs, the IUS and implants are more cost effective than the injectable contraceptives
increasing the uptake of LARC methods will reduce the numbers of unintended pregnancies
