A new cause of ectopic pregnancy: intrauterine contraceptives

A new cause of ectopic pregnancy: intrauterine contraceptives

Patologia E Clinica Ostetrica E Ginecologica 7(1): 15-21

The author carefully reviews the published literature from 1966 to 1978 about ectopic, usually ovarian, pregnancies resulting from IUD failure. It appears that the incidence of ectopic pregnancy has increased 6-fold during the past few years in IUD acceptors. Such phenomenon is still very rare in Italy where IUD acceptors are few, and where IUD types utilized are the least conducive to ectopic pregnancy. There have been published cases of ectopic pregnancy in women on low-dose progestin drugs; symptomatology is the same in both cases, and diagnosis should not be difficult.
