Abstract Adolescent girls are very fertile and therefore need a reliable contraceptive strategy in order to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Although highly recommended by international gynecological and adolescent societies and in spite of its high efficiency, good tolerance and ease of use, only minority of adolescents use IUD as a contraceptive method. This article will focus on available IUDs suitable for adolescents and will address misconceptions and barriers to use of IUDs in this age group. We believe this information will encourage physicians in recommending IUD use to adolescents during their most vulnerable years.
