Intrauterine Device

Contraceptive Device Intrauterine


Presentation

  • This report is unique due to the subtle presentation of a potentially life-threatening diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Her clinical presentation and laboratory findings meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention diagnostic criteria for streptococcal toxic shock syndrome. Her diagnosis was confirmed by autopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Herein, we present a woman with FMF as the first case, whose attacks were triggered by copper-containing IUD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patient presented with vomiting and abdominal pain after insertion of an AiMu MCu IUD, was treated via laparoscopy and had a full recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 25-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 0) with a copper IUD in place presented with a positive pregnancy test.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Rectal Mass
  • Clinical, radiologic, and endoscopic examinations revealed a rectal mass and right hydronephrosis. Rectal biopsy showed nonspecific colitis. Laparotomy showed a mass that was invading and obstructing the pelvic orifice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suprapubic Pain
  • A 45-year-old woman, who had had an intrauterine contraceptive device inserted 10 years earlier, presented with dysuria, frequency and voiding difficulty with suprapubic pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Right Flank Pain
  • We treated a 44-year-old woman who presented with vaginal discharge, right flank pain, dysuria, and difficulty with defecation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vaginal Bleeding
  • Continuation of hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs) - widely used and highly effective contraceptives that also decrease menstrual flow - is controversial during hematopoietic stem cell transplants (SCTs) due to infectious and vaginal bleeding concerns[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, IUDs are associated with short-term complications such as vaginal bleeding, pelvic discomfort, dyspareunia and pelvic infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • She had noticed abnormal vaginal bleeding with a foul smell 3 years before admission. Then the IUD was removed and a polyp was found at the IUD contact site. Two months before admission, endocervical polypectomy was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Consequently, research should concentrate on the alleviation of abnormal vaginal bleeding. Prevention is difficult, mainly because the etiopathology of abnormal bleeding is insufficiently understood.[doi.org]
Urinary Urgency
  • A 42-year-old female with remote history of intrauterine device (IUD) placement presented with gross hematuria, urinary urgency, and dyspareunia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 38-year-old woman suffered from recurrent urinary urgency and dysuria and without macroscopic hematuria for about 1 month. Urinary ultrasound and abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed thickening of the bladder walls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Female Sexual Dysfunction
  • OBJECTIVES: To examine the effect of copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD) on female sexual dysfunction (FSD) subtypes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Adnexal Mass
  • After she was treated with intravenous and outpatient antibiotics with clinical improvement, repeat imaging 1 month later revealed a persistent complex left adnexal mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Macroscopic Hematuria
  • A 38-year-old woman suffered from recurrent urinary urgency and dysuria and without macroscopic hematuria for about 1 month. Urinary ultrasound and abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed thickening of the bladder walls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • This case emphasises the importance of a full workup for a missing IUD and that, if incidentally found, IUDs can be removed safely laparoscopically in conjunction with another procedure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Gram-Positive Bacteria
  • Among IUD cases, increase in PNL, fungal elements, E. coli and Gram-positive bacteria and decrease in Lactobacillus spp. were observed, compared to IUD-cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Actinomyces Israelii
  • The historic association of Actinomyces israelii infection with intrauterine devices (IUDs) has long been recognized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Patients responding to treatment had significantly lower progesterone receptor expression on post-treatment biopsies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Impact statement Several treatments have been described for endometriosis. From a symptomatic perspective, conservative medical management has been proposed with a variable response.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This article presents the case, discusses the incidence, potential causes, predisposing factors, diagnostic modalities, and the course of treatment for this particular diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • STUDY DESIGN: We randomized 90 parous women requesting copper T380A IUD insertion in a 1:1 ratio to active or placebo treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment of endometrial cancer in young women who desire future fertility poses several challenges.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Treatment and prognosis Complications IUCD embedding IUCD perforation three-fold increase risk of generalised pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) pelvic actinomycosis infection pregnancy-associated with IUCD associated pregnancy with spontaneous m iscarriage[radiopaedia.org]
  • Treatment and prognosis Complications IUCD embedding IUCD perforation three-fold increase risk of generalized pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) pelvic actinomycosis infection pregnancy-associated with IUCD associated pregnancy with spontaneous m iscarriage[radiopaedia.org]

Etiology

  • Menstrual hemostasis is a complex phenomenon and attempts at etiological treatment give poor results.[doi.org]

Epidemiology

  • Furthermore, a recent pooled analysis of 26 epidemiological studies suggested that IUCs might protect against cervical carcinogenesis 66 Castellsague X, Diaz M, Vaccarella S, et al.[doi.org]
  • Russell Luepker, head of epidemiology at the University of Minnesota. I wouldn't go out and get my thighs measured, either. Who can measure leg length accurately to within 0.4 to 0.7 inches? Not many of us.[medpundit.blogspot.com]

Prevention

  • […] pills (POPs) prevent pregnancy through a combination of actions.[web.archive.org]
  • IUDs primarily work by preventing fertilization. The progestogen released from hormonal IUDs mainly works by thickening the cervical mucus, preventing sperm from reaching the fallopian tubes.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Condoms were promoted for the prevention of sexually-transmitted infections. The primary outcome was pregnancy; secondary outcomes were discontinuation, side-effects, and HIV acquisition and disease progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, researchers believe that the main mechanism of action of copper-bearing IUDs is the prevention of fertilization.[fhi360.org]
