Research

The aim of our research is to maximize continuation of use of the intrauterine device (IUD) by minimizing side effects in order to reduce unintended pregnancies

Many IUD designs and shapes are a direct result of clinicians efforts to improve the performance of IUDs and reduce the overall level of their side effects.

The IUD-cavity relationship and the tolerability of the device is paramount to achieving this aim.

IUDs that fit properly have the least risk to cause side effects. Both the TCu380A IUD (Paragard®), left, and the Mirena® LNG-IUS have a transverse arm length of 32 mm. If the uterine cavity is wide enough, the risk of pain, bleeding expulsion and embedment is low.
