Which is more important in defining the contraceptive efficacy for contraceptive IUDs? The "Cumulative Kaplan Meier Rate" or the "Pearl Index? "

Which is more important in defining the contraceptive efficacy for contraceptive IUDs? The "Cumulative Kaplan Meier Rate" or the "Pearl Index? "

Depends...: In many studies of IUDs there isn't much difference between the two indexes. The CKMR takes into account when the pregnancy happened. In a 5 year study, pregnancies might happen in year 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5. The CKMR will calculate a lower risk for later pregnancies than for earlier pregnancies. The Pearl index would just compute the risk based on total pregnancies over the 5 year period of study. ...Read more

Which IUD has the highest efficacy: Mirena, Skyla, or Kyleena? Why is the Kaplan-Meier for Kyleena so much higher than the others at 1.45?

Which IUD has the highest efficacy: Mirena, Skyla, or Kyleena? Why is the Kaplan-Meier for Kyleena so much higher than the others at 1.45?

Similiar: Mirena, Skyla and Kyleena are all over 99% effective. However, Mirena initially releases 20 mcg/day of Levonorgestrel; Kyleena 17.5mcg/day
and Skyla 14mcg/day. The higher dose may give Mirena a slight edge but its unproven. Mirena and Kyleena use is 5 years; Skyla 3 years. Skyla and Kyleena are smaller so insertion is less painful if you've never given birth. Best wishes! ...Read more

Please my son Wight is 23kg 131cm age 8years-old his basketball kapten told me that he's under Wight what can I do to him?

Diet and exercise: He is only a few kilos under "normal". So long as he has a healthy appetite and is active there is no concern. No everyone fits in the average normals. If he is not eating well and isn't active, which I doubt since he is playing basketball, then he should see his doctor. Otherwise he will grow fine. ...Read more
