Episode 5.4 Meds for IUD placement, some recent studies, and a poem!

In this episode, we discover three more female eponyms, plus we review the utility of premedication for IUD placement. We review new literature about maximum dose of oxytocin in labor, surgery vs pessary for pelvic organ prolapse, buprenorphine vs methadone for management of addiction in pregnancy, new guidelines for male infertility evaluation, fasting for the glucose challenge, increasing VBAC rates, delayed pushing, and a poem!
