Material and methods: A total of 400 women were enrolled as subjects for this study. Any complication that arose was aptly managed and kept a record of. Frequent follow ups and recall appointments were scheduled for every patient to collect and analyse the necessary data. All the collected data was stored in Microsoft excel sheets.

The most common reason for acceptance was No remembrance once inserted with32.5% of subjects of this opinion. 25.25% of patients accepted because of the reversible nature of the procedure.
