An intrauterine device, or IUD, is a small device that doctors insert in the uterus as a contraceptive. Many women experience IUD side effects, especially in the first few weeks to the several months following insertion. Major concern in disparate age of women depends upon various physiological factors. Indubitably uterine perforation, expulsion and bleeding irregularities are the common one with an IUD. Sometimes the perforation may be partial or sometimes whole device passes to the peritoneal cavity, moreover large randomized trial of parous women aged 18 to 38 observed highest rate of IUD expulsion. Copper containing device mostly causes intermenstrual spotting or heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding and thus it is main reason for the method discontinuation. All the risks should be explained to patients and should be prevented, if possible, by taking all measures to insert devices safely, and diagnosed and managed appropriately.
