We assessed the risk of tubal pregnancy among women who (1) were currently using an intrauterine device (IUD) and (2) had discontinued IUD use while still sexually active and at risk of pregnancy using data from a multicentre case-control study of married women conducted in Indonesia.
Cases were 560 women diagnosed with histologically confirmed ectopic pregnancy from April 1989 to August 1990 at any one of 11 participating hospitals.
Controls were 1120 non-pregnant women similar in age and place of residence to the cases.
In-person interviews were conducted to collect information regarding current and past contraceptive use as well as other demographic and personal characteristics.
