Non-surgical female sterilisation using quinacrine: Efficacy of two insertions of quinacrine pellets STERILISATION FEMININE, NON CHIRURGICALE AVEC L'EMPLOI DE QUINACRINE: EFFICACITE DE DEUX INSERTIONS DE PELLETS DE QUINACRINE
In a group of 159 women at Santiago du Chili, fertility control by means of chemical occlusion of the utero-tubular junction was assessed. Two transcervical intra-uterine insertions of 216 mg of quinacrin, carried out at an interval of one month and associated with 50 mg of intra-uterine diclofenac and 150 mg of intra-muscular diclofenac resulted in a pregnancy rate after 12 months of 2.1 per 100 women and a Pearl index of 1.63 at 27 mouths after the sterilization process. The complications and adverse events appear to be similar to those which occer during insertion of an IUD and were minor and transient, disappearing within a few hours or at most 2 days after the procedure.
