Fertility regulatory methods and development of complications after evacuation of complete hydatidiform mole.

In a prospective, simple randomised study, we evaluated the relative efficacy of hormonal (oral contraceptive pill) and non-hormonal (intrauterine contraceptive device) methods of contraception as fertility regulatory agents in patients with complete hydatidiform moles and assessed the development of complications and sequelae if any, following their use. Fifty-six patients each on oral contraceptive pills (OCP) and intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) were recruited into the study. Ten patients, six on OCP and four on IUCD discontinued for varying reasons. Five patients (two on OCP, and three on IUCD) developed a gestational trophoblastic tumour and were admitted for chemotherapy. There was no complication attributable to any of the methods.
