Do contraceptives protect against salpingitis?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 12/29/2016

Only barrier contraceptives, such as condoms, can protect against sexually transmitted diseases, which are the main cause of salpingitis.

However, oral contraceptives have been shown to reduce the incidence of these: they cause an increase in the viscosity of cervical mucus, which makes it difficult for microorganisms to enter.

On the other hand, as already mentioned in the article, the IUD is a risk factor for this pathology.
