Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected women have unique contraceptive needs. HIV infection is now considered a chronic disease and contraceptive options have widened for HIV-infected women. However, there are safety concerns regarding the use of intrauterine devices and systems in HIV-infected women. Although studies are limited, intrauterine devices appear to be safe for use by most HIV-infected women. This is a review of the available data and international recommendations.
