HPV infections have been linked to cervical cancer in several studies before and protection against these viruses can provide protection against cervical cancer.

The analysis included data from studies involving more than 12000 women.

Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer among women globally. The Definitive Guide to Women's Intimate Health, tells Bustle.

But the findings suggest IUDs could be an important tool in the fight against cervical cancer, which is on the rise worldwide. All these women used various methods of contraception, but those who chose IUDs were less likely to develop cervical cancer than all the other ones. And since the 2016 election, IUD demand has spiked 900 percent.

"But there are still epidemics going on in most parts of the world where women don't have regular access to screenings - those ladies stand to benefit most from this", Cortessis says. "The possibility that a woman could experience some help with cancer control at the same time she is making contraception decisions could potentially be very, very impactful", she said.

The analysis is "fascinating", and the potential explanation for why an IUD might reduce cervical cancer risk "really does make sense", said women's health specialist Dr. Jill Rabin.

Around 528,000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer worldwide in 2012 and 266,000 women died from the disease. In addition, increasing awareness among the general population about care, prevention and treatment of cervical cancer. Moreover, cervical cancer is characterized by the abnormal growth of cancerous cells in the tissues of the cervix. Cortessis said understanding this is the next step. Another possible mechanism could be a long-term immune response, she said. Another possibility is that when an IUD is removed, some cervical cells that contain HPV infection or precancerous changes may be scraped off.

However, Dr Pradeep Tanwar, who investigates gynaecological cancers, said the study was limiting.

Some scientists believe that the placement of the coil stimulates an immune response in the cervix, giving the body an opportunity to fight an existing HPV infection that could one day lead to cervical cancer. Long term studies looking at only the association between IUD use and cervical cancer protection are needed, they write.

To explore the theory, the team scoured medical literature for research that measured IUD use and cases of cervical cancer.

IUDs are also one of the most effective forms of contraception, noted Dr. Jeffrey Peipert, an obstetrics and gynecology researcher at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis who wasn't involved in the study.
