Objectives
To identify the experience and satisfaction of Chinese women using levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS, Mirena).
Methods
Women attending the family planning clinics in South, North and West China for LNG-IUS insertion were asked to voluntary complete a baseline questionnaire on their contraceptive choice. They were subsequently asked to complete two further questionnaires on their experience and satisfactionat3-6 months and at appr. 1 year after insertion.
Results
One thousand and twenty-one women were invited to participate in this survey from twenty-two medical centers of China. The majority (59%) of women were aged 30-40 years, while 16% were aged <30 and 25% aged > 40 years. The majority had one child (76%), and 8% were nulliparous. At baseline, 36% of women had self-reported heavy or very heavy bleeding, 41% reported normal bleeding and rest had light or no bleeding. Most of women (98%) were satisfied with pre-insertion counseling \"\"contraceptive reliability\"\" was ranked as the most important reason for choosing the LNG-IUS. Most of women were still using Mirena during the following up period. Continues rate was 99% at appr. 3 month and 93% at appr. 12 month. 92 and 93% of the respondents experienced less bleeding at 3 and 12 months, respectively. 63% women thought LNG-IUS was better than previous contraceptive methods, while 10% rated the LNG-IUS as equally good and 3% as worse than previous methods. 24% of women had no previous contraceptive use. Overall, around 90% of respondents were very or rather satisfied with LNG-IUS, and only 1-2% were very dissatisfied Additionally, 64% of women reported that they would recommend LNG-IUS to their friend.
Conclusion
Pre-insertion counseling for LNG-IUS is also important for Chinese women. Based on this survey, we can tell that high continues rate of LNG-IUS users had high satisfaction and highly agreed on the counseling information. All of these findings suggest that LNG-IUS is beneficial to Chinese women based on well acceptance.
