Excerpt
Growing interest in, and demand for, intrauterine devices (IUDs) in many parts of the world led to the publication by the World Health Organization in 1983 of Intrauterine devices: their role in family planning care (WHO Offset Publication No. 75). Developments in the field, widespread availability and use of the newer medicated devices and accumulated research data on safety and efficacy, combined with the experience gained with IUDs in family planning programmes have prompted WHO to issue this revised and updated version. Contraceptive use has increased dramatically over the past several decades, yet many couples wanting to limit or delay births have had no access to modern contraceptives-even in communities where services exist. Access to contraception is influenced by many factors, including the inconvenience or unacceptability of services, limited choice of methods and fear of adverse effects on health, and by obstacles such as inequality of the sexes in decisionmaking. Further difficulties arise where family planning programmes are guided by highly restrictive policies or by studies of contraceptive products that are no longer widely available. The widespread use of copper-bearing IUDs, combined with the results of numerous clinical and epidemiological studies, demand that family planning programmes re-examine and update their prescribing protocols and counselling strategies with regard to these methods.
