The CDC estimates that there are 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States each year.

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods currently available in the United States include the implant (Nexplanon) and intrauterine devices (ParaGard, Mirena, Skyla, Liletta and Kyleena).

They are recommended as the first-line choice of contraception for teens and adult women by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
