Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27514


Purpose:

In the proposed study, women aged 18-29 seeking oral or injectable contraception will be offered an opportunity to try LARC instead; the FDA-approved options include two types of intrauterine products and one type of subdermal contraceptive implant. Over a 24 month period, the experiences of LARC users will be compared to the experiences of those opting for their initial short-acting method.


Study summary:

In this partially randomized patient preference study, women aged 18-29 seeking oral or injectable contraception will be offered an opportunity to try LARC instead; the FDA-approved options include two types of intrauterine products and one type of subdermal contraceptive implant. Over a 24-month period, the experiences of LARC users will be compared to the experiences of those opting for their initial short-acting method. It is expected that 38% of the participants using short-acting methods will stop using them during the first year and be at risk of unintended pregnancy. In contrast, less than 20% of LARC users will want to have their contraceptive removed. Continuation rates will be measured and pregnancies will be tallied in the two groups to document any differences that emerge.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - 18 to 29 years of age; - sexually active; - seeking oral or injectable contraception; - working cell phone; - working email account; - willingness to be contacted by the clinic staff or study coordinators; and, - willingness to complete questionnaires. Exclusion Criteria: - currently pregnant; - previous use of a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) method; and, - medical contraindications for oral contraceptives and injectables.
