An intrauterine device, releasing approximately 20 micrograms/day of levonorgestrel (LNg 20), used by 1124 women, was studied in a randomized trial of five years duration in comparison with the Copper T, model TCu 380Agm in 1121 women. At five years, the gross cumulative pregnancy rate of 1.1 +/- 0.5 per 100 among users of the LNg 20 devices was not(More)

Patients with diabetes insipidus (DI) are at high risk for dehydration, hypernatremia and hemodynamic instability. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) likewise has negative effects on electrolyte balance. If ovulation induction is required in a patient with DI, there is thus a strong argument for avoiding techniques that increase the risk of OHSS. This(More)
