Does the IUS increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy?

0

The IUS (Intra Uterine System) is not associated with any increased risk of ectopic pregnancy and the rate is lower than the rate for women aged 25-40 years who are not using any method of birth control. No method of contraception can totally exclude the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy but the IUS user is at a very low risk. (0.6 cases per 1,000 woman-years of use).
