postpartum intrauterine contraceptive device (PPIUCD), contraception, expulsion
Background: India is the second most populated country in the world with 1.32 billion people. It contributes 17.5% of the world#x2019;s population by adding 25 million births annually. Family planning with adequate spacing between the pregnancies can prevent about 32% of maternal deaths and 10% of child mortality. Postpartum period is the ideal time for family planning. Pregnancies with less than the recommended spacing can lead to obstetric complications like spontaneous abortion, preterm labour, postpartum haemorrhage and maternal mortality and fetal complications like SGA babies and fetal deaths. Hence practice of contraception is mandatory. Among the options available, Cu T 380A is the most cost effective, safe, rapidly reversible, long acting, coital independent method of contraception with relatively few side effects. Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the safety, efficacy and expulsion rate of immediate postpartum intrauterine contraceptive devices (PPIUCD).
