In this randomized trial, investigators intend to determine the expulsion and discontinuation rate of immediate postpartum intrauterine devices in the patient population of the University of Oklahoma Women's Healthcare Specialists Clinic (OUWHSC).
Short-interval pregnancy (SIP) or rapid, repeat pregnancy is defined as a pregnancy within one year of prior delivery. These pregnancies are often unintended and are associated with adverse risks. Low contraceptive initiation during the postpartum period is a contributing factor to SIP. This study will be the first to investigate the initiation of a highly-effective, immediately active contraceptive device during the antepartum period. The antepartum period serves as an ideal time for postpartum contraception counseling, due to patients' active involvement with the healthcare system. The pharmacokinetic analysis proposed in this study will be the first to investigate whether and to what extent ENG hormone crosses the placenta. This data will enrich understanding of the pharmacology of exogenous progestins administered during pregnancy and provide information that can be incorporated into future patient counseling regarding the risks of fetal exposure with exogenous progestin use.
This is a feasibility, multi-center, open-label, non-significant risk device study for a non-hormonal contraceptive ring.
This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetic properties of rilpivirine and darunavir when used in combination with etonogestrel
This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetic properties of Rilpivirine and Darunavir when used in combination with Levonorgestrel
Norgestrel 75 mcg is a progestin-only pill (POP), which is a kind of oral birth control pill. To be effective in preventing pregnancy, this kind of birth control pill is supposed to be taken every day at the same time, without delaying the intake for more than 3 hours. This study aims to find out if taking the pill 6 hours late or not taking it for one day will affect the way it works.
This study is investigating whether use of postpartum family planning (PPFP) increases if messages on PPFP and, if desired, PPFP services are integrated into as many contacts as possible between women/couples and the health system during pregnancy and the first year after birth. Health system contacts may be at health facilities (including antenatal, labor and delivery, postnatal, and child immunization visits) or, with Ethiopia's Health Extension Program, at households or health posts in the community.
This is a mixed methods process evaluation of a programmatic intervention to integrate family planning and immunization services at health facilities in Lofa and Grand Bassa counties in Liberia. MCSP used a longitudinal, pair-matched design to monitor the effect of integrating immunization and FP services on utilization of FP and routine immunization services. In Lofa and Grand Bassa counties, 36 facilities were pair-matched to intervention and comparison sites based on predetermined criteria. After approximately 9 months of implementation, MCSP conducted a qualitative study employing key informant interviews (KIIs) and focus group discussions (FGDs) at intervention and comparison sites, and with district-, county-, and national-level MOH supervisors and managers.
This study is the first study investigating the combined intrauterine administration of LNG (levonorgestrel) and IND (indomethacin). It is a combined proof-of-concept (PoC) and dose finding (DF) study in pre-menopausal women. It is designed to investigate the pharmacodynamics (PD) of BAY 987443 (i.e. IUS (intrauterine system) releasing LNG and IND), as well as pharmacokinetics (PK) of both active substances, safety and tolerability. In this study, Jaydess, as an LNG-only IUS, will be used as a comparator.
Many adolescents using the pediatric emergency department (ED) are at higher risk for unintended pregnancy. This is a significant public health issue and hormonal contraception is the mainstay of prevention. Many barriers to hormonal contraception exist and other studies have demonstrated that referral from the ED for hormonal contraception leads to poor follow up. This study will be a pilot study to assess the feasibility of two implementation strategies for initiating contraception in the pediatric ED, a limited medication offering and a more comprehensive medication offering.
