A new copper IUD (Fincoid) in adolescent and young nulliparous women



A new copper IUD (Fincoid) in adolescent and young nulliparous women



Contraception Fertilite Sexualite 12(1): 17-19



The contraceptive performance of a new copper IUD, the Fincoid, in nulliparous adolescent and young women was tested in a clinical trial of 241 1st insertions and 2268 woman-months of use, with an individual 12-month follow-up. The participating women were age 21 or younger with a mean age of 19.7 years. The 1st segment net cumulative rates were: pregnancy 4.2, expulsion 10.4, removals for bleeding 0.9 and for pain 5.5, and removal for infection 2.1. The continuation rate was 73.1 and the lost-to-follow-up percentage 6.8. (author's modified)
