Torrance, California 90502


Purpose:

This is a pilot study of up to 10 women, which will test the hypothesis that the placement of copper IUDs through the uterine incision at the time of uncomplicated elective C-section is technically feasible and acceptable to women seeking long-term contraception.


Study summary:

Women will be enrolled in this study during late prenatal care. Consent for placement of the IUD will be verified prior to elective C-section. After removal of the placenta, the copper IUD will be placed through the incision at the fundus and the tail strings will be delivered through the cervix. Data will be collected about patient bleeding and possible infection during the immediate postoperative period. The visibility of the strings will be verified at discharge and at 2 and 6 weeks postpartum. Fundal placement of the IUD will be verified by ultrasound at the patient's last visit.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Pregnant woman - Requires elective C-section - Desires long-term contraception Exclusion Criteria: - Contraindications to copper IUD
