Stacy said her uncle, Dr Daniel Asare who is now the CEO at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital played a critical role during that critical moment in her she fought for her life.

But the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist of Ghana(SOGOG) in a rejoinder has debunked her story.

“The attention of SOGOG has been drawn to a YouTube video being circulated on social media with the above caption in which Mrs Stacey Amoateng alleges that she acquired cervical cancer from the use of a copper intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD).

“While our Society empathizes with Mrs Stacey Amoateng’s predicament and appreciates her apparent drive to help prevent cervical cancer through public education and screening
services, the Society will like to correct the misinformation being conveyed by the contents of the said video.”

Disapproving her story as lacking scientific basis, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist of Ghana reveal that there is no truth to back her claims.
“SOGOG hereby informs all persons that at present, there is NO scientific data or evidence to support the assertion that any form of the Intrauterine Device (IUD) causes cervical cancer.

“The Society states emphatically that the Copper IUD, which is one of two forms of IUD
available in the country, is a SAFE and EFFECTIVE form of long-term reversible
contraception, and couples who desire to use them or are
currently using them can safely
do so
without any fear or panic.”
