Brief Summary:

The study is a randomized controlled trial comparing outcomes of immediate postplacental insertion of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) vs. interval insertion of the LNG-IUS performed 4-8 weeks after delivery for patients undergoing scheduled cesarean delivery.

Our primary hypothesis is that the proportion of women using the LNG-IUS for contraception at 12 months after delivery will be higher in the group randomized to immediate post-placental insertion.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Use of the LNG-IUS for Contraception [ Time Frame: 12 months after cesarean delivery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rates of Expulsion of the LNG-IUS [ Time Frame: 12 months after cesarean delivery ]
  2. Perforation Rates [ Time Frame: 12 months after cesarean delivery ]
  3. Satisfaction With LNG-IUS [ Time Frame: 6 months after cesarean delivery ]
    We measured satisfaction with the IUS at each visit using a single question with a 5 point Likert scale, with 1 being "very unsatisfied," 2 "unsatisfied", 3 "neutral," 4 "satisfied," and 5 "very satisfied." For statistical purposes, subjects were determined to be "SATISFIED" with the IUS if they chose either 4 or 5 for this question.

  4. Satisfaction With LNG-IUS [ Time Frame: 12 months after cesarean delivery ]
    We measured satisfaction with the IUS at each visit using a single question with a 5 point Likert scale, with 1 being "very unsatisfied," 2 "unsatisfied", 3 "neutral," 4 "satisfied," and 5 "very satisfied." For statistical purposes, subjects were determined to be "SATISFIED" with the IUS if they chose either 4 or 5 for this question.
