Abstract

Cervical smears, vaginal smears and bacteriological cultures of the uterine cavity were taken in 458 patients using intrauterine devices, selected at random. The tests demonstrated that inflammatory, hyperplastic or degenerative changes were more frequent following intrauterine removal than before insertion. Indirect evidence was found of a local oestrogenic effect on the endometrium in women fitted with the devices.
