Background: Comparative evaluation of PPIUCD and interval IUCD in terms of incidence of failure, expulsions, bleeding p/v and other complications.
Methods: Total 200 willing women after counseling in antenatal, early labour or post natal were inserted PPIUCD after excluding chorioamnionitis, PROM >18hrs, unresolved PPH, puerperal sepsis. Another 100 willing women were inserted interval IUCD after excluding contraindications. All were followed up to 6 months.
Results: Expulsions rate was significantly higher in PPIUCD as compared to interval insertions (5.5% v/s 5%). Number of removal of IUCD was almost similar in both the groups (6.5% V/S 7%). Common causes of PPIUCD removal were social.
Conclusions: Postpartum inserting of IUCD is safe effective, feasible and reversible method of contraception.
