A study in the May 24 June New England Journal of Medicine compared the contraceptive failure rate among about 7,500 women using long-acting, reversible contraceptives and other methods.
Further breakdown of the numbers showed that among the women with a BMI of 25 (within the normal range), a 10-centimeter higher waist measurement was associated with a 15 percent higher heart failure rate; women with a BMI of 30 had an 18 percent increased heart failure rate.
