A Pilot Study of Early Postpartum Intrauterine Contraception (ImmPPIUD)
This is a prospective clinical trial of ultrasound guided intrauterine contraception insertion 10 minutes - 48 hours after vaginal delivery of single infant. A six month follow-up will entail three follow-up visits; 4-6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months.

Levonorgestrel-Releasing Intrauterine Contraceptive System, 52 Mg, 5 Year Duration Postpartum placement of LNG-IUS within 10 minutes - 48 hours
Other Name: LNG-IUS
This was a single arm cohort study of women who desired to receive a levonorgestrel releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) within 48 hours of uncomplicated vaginal delivery.
Women were enrolled during a prenatal care visit when they reported they desired to use the LNG-IUS after the birth of their infant.
Forty women stated enrolled in the study prior to labor, and baseline data were obtained. After delivery 29 women remained both interested in the study and were still eligible to receive the LNG-IUS prior to discharge from the hospital.
Of the 29 women who received the LNG-IUS prior to discharge from the hospital 11 women had an LNG-IUS expulsion prior to 6 months postpartum.
