What contraceptive options are effective and safe for women using warfarin after DVT or PE?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A copper intrauterine device (IUD) is a safe and effective contraceptive method for women with an acute thromboembolic event before anticoagulation therapy is established, and for women with a recent event or history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) who are taking warfarin. Women maintained on warfarin may also consider use of several progestin-containing contraceptives (IUD, implant, or injection). (SOR C, based on expert opinion.)
