As of April 1993, an estimated 5.3 million women in Indonesia were using IUDs. In 1991, the IUD was the second most commonly used family planning method in Indonesia (13.4 percent). According to the Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey, in 1994 it became the third most commonly used method among currently married women (10.3 percent), primarily on the islands of Java and Bali. The National Family Planning Coordinating Board (BKKBN), in collaboration with the Faculties of Medicine, Diponegoro University in Semarang, Airlangga University in Surabaya, and BKS-Penfin in Bandung, conducted a "Follow-up Study Among IUD Acceptors of Java,” from November to December 1994. As this report states, 1,825 IUD acceptors who had their IUD inserted from April 1989 to March 1994 were interviewed. The study collected data on follow-up mechanisms; frequency, type, and management of side-effects; switching of method and clinic; and use-effectiveness of IUD, by type.
