A cohort study was conducted in 3 rural districts of Nepal to assess the acceptability of the IUD to women. Some 333 women requested IUD insertion. The primary outcome measure was the proportion of women opting to continue with the IUD. Secondary outcome measures were occurrence of adverse effects, and analysis of socio-demographic variables. The findings indicated substantial untapped potential for intrauterine contraception in Nepal.
