Abstract

OM-GA Cu and Copper-T IUCDs were compared in a randomized prospective clinical trial in two-hundred women and followed up for two years. Dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia were more frequent with the Copper-T. Menometrorrhagiae, vaginal discharge and pelvic inflammatory disease were similar with both IUCDs. Two-year pregnancy rate for the OM-GA Cu was 5.4% and 3.2% for the Copper-T. Expulsion rate was 11.9% for the OM-GA Cu and 5.3% for the Copper-T. The OM-GA Cu users had less dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia but a higher expulsion rate compared to the Copper-T.
