Background: Over 500,000 women die each year from pregnancy-related complications among whom, 13% are due to unsafe abortion. This study was conducted to compare the side effects of TCu380A and CuSafe300 IUDs including bleeding, pain, and infection during a 6-month period in Karaj health centers in 2003. Materials and methods: It was a randomized single–blind clinical trial, during which 270 candidates applied for IUD were randomly placed in two groups of IUD TCu380A and CuSafe300. Having inserted the IUD, its location was controlled by sonography. The side effects were recorded in the following 1,2,3,6 months. Results: Bleeding was more commonly occurred during the first month of implantation in both groups, however, at the 1st,2nd and 6th month, bleeding was significantly lower in CuSafe300 group. Meanwhile, pain was more frequently happened during the first month in both groups while at all intervals CuSafe300 users were complained of pain and infection significantly less than the other group. The 6th month was complicated more commonly with infection among all subjects. Conclusion: Although the CuSafe300 IUD is more expensive than TCu380A, females who have encountered problems while using TCu380A IUD are strongly recommended to insert CuSafe300.
Keywords: IUD, TCu380A, CuSafe300, Uterine bleeding, IUD expulsion.
