WOMENA RECOMMENDATIONS

from manufacturers, there is little scientific evidence to indicate that menstrual cup use
increases the risk of IUD expulsion, and therefore little reason for IUD users to exclude using
an MC. In the spirit of precaution, and until better evidence is available, possible …

reason for this spike, but many other products were also associated, for …
