dc.description.abstractThe study examined the reproductive and health profile of Benghazi women using intrauterine contraceptive devices [‎IUDs]‎ and evaluated one such device, the TCu-380 A. An historical longitudinal study was carried out using data from the Fertility Regulation Clinic, Keish Polyclinic, Benghazi. The subjects were 457 women registered for TCu-380 A insertion between 1995 and 1998, who had been under follow-up for at least 6 months. The majority were Libyan [‎87.8%]‎, aged 20-29 years [‎63.4%]‎, of parity 1-6 [‎67.1%]‎, non-lactating [‎64.3%]‎ and with normal delivery at last conception [‎95.1%]‎. Half had a chronic disease. The cumulative 36-month follow-up of those using TCu-380 A revealed an effectiveness rate of 99.8%, a continuation rate of 96.1% and complications in 3.5%. TCu-380 A appears to be an effective, durable and safe IUDEN
