Serum prolactin values in 40 women using various types of copper devices for different durations of use are presented. The values indicate that the serum prolactin level is higher in women using copper intrauterine devices when compared to control group (statistically significant, P < 0.05 and P < 0.002 in lactating and non-lactating groups). The duration of use of IUD or the history of previous use of hormonal contraceptives did not affect the serum prolactin levels. A prospective study correlating the use of IUD and prolactin levels is next proposed.
