Abstract

The aim of this retrospective chart review study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of an ultrasound performed at the intrauterine device (IUD) post insertion visit in an otherwise asymptomatic patient. The data demonstrated that 18% of asymptomatic patients required an IUD removal based on an IUD post insertion ultrasound 4-8 weeks after insertion. This study does support the routine use of performing an ultrasound at the IUD post insertion visit in an otherwise asymptomatic patient.
