Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The experience of 707 women undergoing a first insertion of the Cu-7® at the Family Planning Clinic, Edmundston, has been assessed.The majority (67.3%) of patients were parous, and 77.2% were 20-29 years of age. Insertion of the Cu-7 was considered easy in both nulliparous and parous patients.Two years of use have been completed by 136 women (7,917 woman months of use). Relevant life-table discontinuation rates for the first two years of use, respectively, were: involuntary pregnancy 1.50%, 1.39%; expulsion 6.60%, 1.11%; removal of the Cu-7 for some medical reason 19.83%, 14.85%.Removals for pain among nulliparous women were significantly more frequent than among parous patients (p<.001).
