Emergency IUD contraception
Too few gynecologtists are aware of the very high efficacy of intrauterine copper devices (IUD) to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse.
Adolescents and young nulliparous women are the groups that are most likely to be EC users. Yet, they are the least well informed about EC in general and the use of an IUD for EC in particular.
Immediate postabortion IUD contraception
In recent years many attempts have been made to prevent induced and repeat abortion by providing greater access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) such as IUDs and implants. Immediate intrauterine device (IUD) insertion after termination of pregnancy (TOP) is a very convenient way to provide contraception, and prevent repeat abortion, as it is an opportune moment to carry out this very short, easy and safe, procedure.
Immediate postpartum contraception
Currently a new technique has been developed based on the results of longstanding experience in immediate post-placental IUD insertion.
Insertion and fixations of the new technique is easy, safe and quick. The technique is unique and is easily reversible in the office.
In his clinic in Ghent, Dr. Wildemeersch organizes training sessions for doctors from inside and outside Belgium, interested in learning the anchoring technique of frameless intrauterine devices.
The clinic is specialized in providing precision intrauterine contraception to fulfill women's needs.
