Displaced intrauterine device: A retrospective study


Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUCD) are used worldwide since 1965.The intrauterine device (copper-T) is most common method used for contraception as it is an economical and effective method. It is associated with complications like bleeding, perforation and migration to neighboring organs or omentum. Perforation of the urinary bladder by an IUD is extremely rare. A retrospective study was carried out in a medical college to find out the incidence of displacement of copper-T over a period of one year (Jan 2013 to Dec 2013). Total 240 copper-T were inserted as IUD. There were only two cases of displaced copper-T. In one case, cooper-T migrated into adjacent broad ligament while in another case it migrated into urinary bladder.
