INTRAUTERINE DEVICES Types of UDs:First generation IUDs: non medicated Second generation : copper containingThird generation : hormone releasingIn india under national family welfare programme CU-T-200B is being used.From year 2002,Cu-T-380 A has been introduced in the programme

First generation IUDs:Lippes loopDouble shaped deviceMade up of polyethyleneContains small amount of barium sulphate to allow X-ray examinationHas a tail made up of nylonExists in four sizes A,B,C,D

Second generation IUDs:Came up in 1970s by adding Cu to the IUDsMetallic copper was known to have strong anti-fertility effectsThe numbers included in the names refer to the surface area(in sq. mm) of the copper on the device.

MULTILOAD 375Advantages:Low expulsion rateLower incidence of side effects eg.pain and bleedingEasier to fit in nulliparous womenBetter tolerated by nulliparaIncreased contraceptive effectivenessEffective as post coital contraceptiveThird generation IUDS:-Progestasert : T shaped device filled with 38mg of progesterone-LNG-20: a T shaped IUD releasing 20mcg of levonorgestrel



Mechanism of action of IUDs:-causes cellular and biochemical changes in the endometrium-these changes impair the viability of the gametes and hence reduce its chances of fertilization-hormone releasing IUDs increase the viscosity of the cervical mucus and thereby prevent sperm from entering the cervix.

Relative:-anaemia-menorrhagia-history of PID-purulent cervical discharge-distortions of the uterine cavity

Ideal IUD candidate:The planned parenthood federation of america(PPFA)-who has borne at least one child-has no history of pelvic disease-has menstural period-is willing to check the IUD tail-has acess to follow-up and treatment of potential problems-is in a monogamous relationship.What is the ideal time for insertion and why is follow-up important??

Side effects and complications:-bleeding-pelvic infection-uterine perforation-pregnancy-ectopic pregnancy-expulsion-fertility after removal-cancer and teratogenesis-mortality-pain
