Risk of Uterine Perforation among Women Using different types of IUDs and the Association with Timing of Insertion and Breastfeeding

The goal of the study is to compare the incidence of uterine perforation within 12 months after IUD insertion between: (1) postpartum insertions within 12 months of delivery (with breastfeeding status), (2) post abortion or pregnancy loss IUD insertions and (3) interval IUD insertions not associated with a pregnancy, and to determine if IUD insertion immediately postpartum and/or breastfeeding are associated with an increased risk of perforation.
