Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) removed from 50 Igbo women were subjected to bacteriologic studies. High vaginal swabs from the women were cultured simultaneously. In 49 of the 50 IUDs, the culture was negative. The author concludes that the African IUD wearer, like her Caucasian peer, can safely combat any bacterial nidus introduced during device insertion.
