Likewise, new types of contraceptive such as the intrauterine device (IUD)
Mirena® and the vaginal ring Nuvaring® have been criticised on account of their
negative risk-benefit ratio compared to traditional hormonal contraception
methods. Many medical experts point out that too little is known about the longterm
impact of these formulations.

an alternative to ligature of the fallopian tubes. We may therefore expect the
number of users to rise, and, consequently, the number of reports of severe side
effects to increase in tandem.
