Abstract Share this page

The aim of this report is to provide an in-depth assessment of IUD use-dynamics in developing countries, with a focus on discontinuation and method-switching, and to compare users of IUDs with users of other methods. Contraceptive calendar data from 14 nationally representative surveys were used for the analysis. All but two of the surveys were conducted between 1998 and 2008. All major developing regions are represented wi the exception of sub-Saharan Africa, for which no suitable survey data were available. Most analyses focused on contraceptive-use episodes, with particular attention to length of use, reasons for stopping, and method-switching following stopping.
