Postpartum Intrauterine Device Inserters

Population Services International (PSI) proposes to conduct a proof-of-concept study followed by a larger clinical trial in two public sector hospitals through FOGSI in India, to determine if a new intrauterine device (IUD) inserter, specifically designed for the postpartum setting, will improve service delivery. Pregna International will provide the inserters free of cost, and Stanford University will provide technical expertise in study design and implementation. The primary objective of the study is to determine the safety, acceptability (provider/consumer comfort and confidence), feasibility, and efficacy of postpartum intrauterine device (PPIUD) inserters.
