Why Don't More American Women Use IUDs? | Mother Jones Women, educate yourself on your options and fight for what you want! My doctor basically told me last year (2011 for gosh sakes!) that I would have to do my own contraceptive research. Thankfully, it was at a time when I was interested in decreasing ingesting hormones and eating healthier, so I did research the copper IUD option (I love it!!!). There was still resistance from my Dr. because I wasn't married and hadn't had children.
