Updated FSRH Guidance 9th May 2024

On the 9th May 2024 the FSRH CEU issued a statement on the extended use of all 52mg LNG-IUDs for up to eight years for contraception.  The recommendation is as follows:

The FSRH IUC GDG support extended use of any 52mg LNG-IUD for up to eight years for contraception if the user is under 45 years old at the time of insertion. There is insufficient evidence to support use of any 52mg LNG-IUD beyond eight years for contraception. If an individual presents for replacement of the device after eight years, criteria for reasonably excluding pregnancy must be met, as per FSRH guidance

The SPS PGD template will be updated to reflect this updated guidance – anticipated publication is late July 2024.
