This fall, the Phoenix Queens of the Nation joins other NYC women’s organization’s for the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s city-wide Reproductive Justice Intiative which is designed to address and educate women and families living in NYC communities about their reproductive rights and access to services and information.
One aspect of this intiative is getting the word out about the benefits of using the IUD as a form of effective birth control. The IUD is a highly effective, low maintenance birth control option. It is a small, T-shaped birth control device that a health care provider inserts into a woman’s uterus. There are two-types – one contains hormones – and lasts for up to 5 years and the other does not contain hormones and lasts for up to ten years.
