Abstract

In addition to the commonly occurring side effects of bleeding and pain associated with the use of intrauterine devices, it has been suggested that there is also an increase in the incidence of pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic pregnancy in women using such devices. In an earlier paper, the work carried out on bleeding induced by intrauterine devices has been reviewed. In this paper the suspected causal relationship between use of different types of intrauterine devices and pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic pregnancy has been reviewed.
