The study is a randomized controlled trial comparing outcomes of immediate postplacental insertion of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) vs. interval insertion of the LNG-IUS performed 4-8 weeks after delivery for patients undergoing scheduled cesarean delivery. Our primary hypothesis is that the proportion of women using the LNG-IUS for contraception at 12 months after delivery will be higher in the group randomized to immediate post-placental insertion.


Inclusion Criteria: - Pregnant at time of enrollment - Planning to undergo a scheduled cesarean delivery - Desires to use the LNG-IUS for contraception - Willing and able to sign an informed consent in English - Willing to comply with the study protocol - Age greater than or equal to 18 years - English speaking Exclusion Criteria: - Allergy to either polyethylene or levonorgestrel, or other contraindications to use of the LNG-IUS - Positive testing for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, or trichomoniasis during the pregnancy without treatment and a subsequent test of cure confirming a negative result - Presence of leiomyomata significantly distorting the uterine cavity and thus not allowing placement of the LNG-IUS - Uterine anomaly which would not allow placement of the LNG-IUS - Current cervical cancer or carcinoma in-situ - Desire for repeat pregnancy in less than 12 months - History of postabortal or postpartum sepsis
