Extract

Long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods are gaining greater popularity in the United States as both patients and health care professionals become educated about their high contraceptive efficacy, relatively few contraindications, and ease of use. In fact, LARC is recommended by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics as a first-line contraceptive option for adolescents.1,2 Use of LARC among 15- to 19-year-olds increased from 1% to 4.5% between 2007 and 20093 and studies suggest that the uptake of these methods would significantly increase if access and cost barriers were removed.3,4 As experts in pediatric and adolescent medicine, we believe it is our duty to be trained and proficient in providing all contraceptive options to our patients, including LARC methods. We believe that LARC education and hands-on training are paramount for all adolescent medicine fellows and interested pediatric residents.
