Scrawlings of a Madman

I wish I could say that when I’m done doing a little impromptu lecture on pelvic anatomy that there is something on paper worth saving, but well, there isn’t.  Wish you could have been there.

    Ah, no, this is like a Rorshach test. I see a fetus, a pelvis, a baby, and a set of hands “catching”.

    Of course, if you had said that you were lecturing on something else – say, how to swing a golf club – I’m sure I’d be able to see that in there as well.

    Uterus, vagina, retroperitoneal/intraperitoneal division, aorta, branches of hypogastric artery…. isn’t it obvious?

    I have one small question about birth control; maybe you could answer it (I’m a pre-PhD bio student, but in neuroscience; reproductive systems boggle my brain):

    There are typical use failure rates and then there are perfect use failure rates. The perfect use failure rates got explained to me by the person at Planned Parenthood who prescribed me my birth control as ‘Usually it’s either a manufacturing defect – rare – or the device is inserted wrong by the practitioner or the woman is pregnant before beginning use’.

    Okay, this makes sense.

    Paranoid as I am, however, I am still curious about what the story is behind these people I hear about who are all ‘I’d been using the IUD for years! Didn’t get pregnant! Suddenly did!’ or ‘Perfect use I swear didn’t do anything wrong got pregnant!’ Are these people just unusually fertile, or is there something amiss?

    Put another way, in a theoretical perfect situation, where the woman is certifiably not going to get pregnant at the time of beginning use, where the contraception is not defective and is used perfectly, and where the doctor, in cases where it is necessary, inserts it perfectly, is there Absolutely No Chance Of Pregnancy Whatsoever and if not, why?

      Katharine the pregnancy rate after IUD placement is as low as any contraceptive method we have, and in fact the failure rate is even lower than after surgical sterilization. That said, life can find a way, and in very rare (i.e. 1-5/1000 over a year) a pregnancy can occur with an IUD in place.
