Abstract

Reports in the contraceptive literature and our own data concerning the MLCu375 intrauterine device indicate that the high-load ML model is effective, safe, and well tolerated. It is more effective than the MLCu250 without increase in the other cardinal event rates. Consequently, we consider the MLCu375 an improved ML model.

Resumé

D'après les publications spécialisées de la littérature et d'après nos propres résultats concernant le stérilet MLCu375, le modèle ML fortement chargé est efficace, sûr et bien toléré. II est plus efficace que le modèle MLCu250, tout en ne provoquant pas plus d'incidents. Nous considérons donc le modèle MLCu375 comme un progrès par rapport au modèle précédent.

Resumen

Los informes en la literatura sobre anticonceptivos y nuestros propios datos concernientes al dispositivo intrauterino MLCu375, indican que este modelo de alta carga, es efectivo, seguro y bien tolerado. Este dispositivo es más efectivo que el MLCu250, sin aumento de los efectos colaterales más importantes. En consecuencia consideramos que el MLCu375 es un modelo ML mejorado.
