The experiences of 112 women, with a total of 191 IUCD insertions in the period 1978-1986 are reported. The study covers a period of 360 woman years. One pregnancy was reported with the coil in situ, two pregnancies were reported when the coil had either been totally or partially extruded. There were 15 episodes of infection in 15 women. Seventy eight per cent of women were either very or moderately happy with the coil, 10 per cent thought it preferable to other methods though not ideal, and 12 per cent were unhappy with it. Subsequent fertility on removal of the device was not impaired.
