This is a pilot study to determine the feasibility for a randomized controlled trial of two forms of intrauterine contraception: the Levonorgestrel intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) and the Copper T 380A. Teenagers have the highest percentage of unintended pregnancies, and often struggle to comply with daily methods of contraception. The intrauterine device (IUD) provides safe, long-term protection and rates highly for patient satisfaction. It also does not require repeat prescriptions or clinic visits, making it a potentially attractive method among teens. However, in adolescent populations, there is both a lack of information about the IUD, as well as few studies that have examined the use of these devices. This study will examine whether a larger scale study on this topic is feasible. IT will address the feasibility of recruiting, consenting, screening, enrolling, randomizing, and retaining adolescents randomized to the LNG-IUS or Copper T 380a.

The study is being done in order to gain information on the most suitable types of birth control in women who recently had gestational diabetes, or diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy. Th...
The intrauterine device (IUD) is a long-term birth control method that has demonstrated high contraceptive efficacy and effectiveness due to its high compliance, adherence and persistence ...
Hypothesis: Pretreatment with mifeprsitone prior to Mirena placement will induce amenorrhea and reduce bleeding irrregularities during the initial months of Mirena use.
To evaluate the relative risk of cervical neoplasms among copper intrauterine device (Cu IUD) and levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) users.
Although adolescent pregnancy and birth rates have been declining since the early 1990s, the rate of intrauterine device (IUD) use in adolescents remain low. IUDs are a highly effective contraceptive ...
