Likhamaram Choudhary, Khemchand

Birth spacing is an essential factor in reproductive life, to promote health and wellbeing of the mother and child. Postpartum period is one of the important and crucial times when women and couples are highly motivated and more receptive to family planning methods. IUCDs provide long-term, reversible protection against pregnancy and is immediately effective after insertion. It is Suitable for most women. Moreover, it can be used as an emergency contraceptive if inserted within five days of the first act of unprotected sexual intercourse. IUCDs can be replaced, without any gap, as many times as women desires. Insertion is one time procedure and is cost effective. It can be used by lactating women and does not interact with any medicines the client may be taking. Data reports that even after having most of the advantage as compared to other contraceptive methods, IUCD are still not popular among women as a method to prevent pregnancies. One of the main reasons this underutilization of IUCD in India is that many doctors/midwives and potential clients lack accurate, up to date information about IUCDs. Most of time, it is often found that the advantages are under estimated, the disadvantages tend to be exaggerated and many misconceptions are prevalent in the community and among the providers. The high discontinuation rate is due to problems related to providers knowledge and skills leading to improper selection of clients, not following recommended steps of insertion, poor client counselling and lack of follow up, finally all resulting in poor quality of utilization.
