The intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) is the most commonly used form of reversible contraception worldwide; the predominant type of product, the copper IUD (a plastic T-shaped device with copper affixed to it) was developed over 30 years ago and has become the standard bearer for intrauterine contraception, due to its long-term effectiveness, safety and affordability .

Inconsistent use and discontinuation of contraceptives are major causes of unintended pregnancy . The failure rate of the patch or ring is 20 times higher than that of long acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) . Increasing acceptability and use of LARC methods like the intrauterine device (IUD) is an important strategy to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy


The aim of this study is to This study is designed to compare between lidocaine spray 10% and oral ibuprofen as an adequate method for decreasing pain during copper intrauterine contraceptive device insertion .

Research question:

Which of both drugs ( local lidocaine spray 10% or oral ibuprofen tab.) is more effective in decreasing pain during IUD insertion ? Research Hypothesis In this current study, we hypothesize that using of local cervical lidocaine spray 10% prior to IUD insertion will decrease the pain more effectively than ibuprofen tablet 400 mg.
