Our work is a descriptive, retrospective and prospective study, from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2017. Results: From October 2015 to September 2017, 211 out of 18170 eligible deliveries had adopted the IUD in the postpartum period (1.49 %). The average age was 31 years old with extremes of 16 and 49 years old. Conclusion: The intra-uterine device (IUD) is a modern contraceptive method that has proven to be very beneficial in the postpartum. Therefore, the promotion of this method must be maintained to reduce unmet need for contraception and promote the health of couples and families.
