Abstract
The upper normal limit of menstrual blood loss associated with iron deficiency,
and the change in MBL and length of time necessary for development of iron
depletion after IUDs insertion in healthy 193 Korean women were studied. The mean of MBL
was 33.4 ± 23.4(SD) ml and the variation of MBL in different marital, age, and parity groups
showed no statistical significance except for the higher values in young married women. Serum
ferritin concentration was markedly decreased in women showing MBL above 40 ml and the
frequency of subjects with serum ferritin below anemia criteria were increased in women showing
MBL above 50 ml. Other parameters for assessing the iron nutriture showed no significant
difference in different range of MBL. The mean MBL in women fitted with Alza-T IPCS 52 was
significantly decreased after 3 months of insertion, but the increases in hemoglobin a1d serum
ferritin levels were statistically significant at 12 month after insertion. The mean MBL in other
IUD groups was remarkably increased at 1 month in T-Cu 220C group and during 1 to 12
month in Lippes Loop D group. Significant decrease in serum ferritin level was observed at 6
and 12 month in both groups.
