(KTVI) - When it comes to birth control the IUD is not the most popular choice for women. The biggest reason is fear an IUD can cause infertility.

Washington University is about to conduct a study looking at the role that past birth control and infection may play in fertility and participants are needed.   Dr. Amber Cooper explains.

Participants must be:

1.       Between 18 and 35 years old

2.       Recently stopped or planning to stop using a birth control method to try to get pregnant

3.       Have a male partner

4.       English speaking

There is one in-person study visit and 4 short phone surveys. Participants are compensated up to $90 for their participation.
