Keeping these challenges into consideration, program of Post Placental Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (PPIUCD) insertion was initiated at tertiary care hospital settings in Pakistan. Objective of this study is to explore the factors affecting the rate of PPIUCD insertion rate.

A total of 4474 pregnant females were included using non probability consecutive sampling. A trained counselorcounselled the patients regarding benefits of PPIUCD and predesigned structured proforma was filled regarding demographic data, obstetric data and other factors related to insertion of PPIUCD. After the subjects were delivered, PPIUCDs were inserted in consenting females. Data was analyzed for statistical inferences.

Results:  Out of the 3292 participants who qualified for insertion, 802 females consented for PPIUCD insertion with an average insertion rate of 24.36%. The main factor affecting rate of PPIUCD insertion was presence of a trained counselor.
