Phase 3 Randomized Multi-Center Open-Label Study of Levonorgestrel-Releasing Intrauterine System

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new type of inserter for an intrauterine device (IUD). An IUD is a device most commonly used for birth control. A clinician places an IUD in the uterus using an inserter. We are testing a new inserter to see if it can be used safely and easily.  You may be eligible to participate in this research study if you are a healthy woman 18 to 45 years of age with one sexual partner (or not sexually active) and do not want to be pregnant at this time.  You will be one of up to 20 women invited to take part in this study at the University of Pennsylvania. If you are enrolled in this study, your participation will last for about 1 week (7 days).
