Brief Summary:
This prospective randomized controlled study will evaluate if Long Acting Reversible Contraceptive (LARC) forward counseling in combination with same-day LARC placement increases overall LARC uptake within a community college population compared to LARC forward counseling and referral to a secondary clinic for LARC placement. The study will be conducted at Mount Hood Community College (MHCC) in Oregon. Participants will be enrolled into three groups. All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling") and participants will be able to choose between a LARC method and short-acting method of birth control.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Contraception Drug: Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Other: Referral for Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Other: Prescription for Short-Acting Hormonal Contraception Phase 4

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefit of an on-campus birth control counseling and services clinic. Currently there are no health services that provide access to birth control located on the Mount Hood Community College (MHCC) campus. We are offering a temporary 'Birth Control Resource Center' for eligible students. All forms of birth control in this study are FDA approved.

During the study participants will undergo counseling to choose the method of birth control that is right for them. This will include watching an informational video and having a discussion with study staff. If participants choose pills, the patch the ring, or a diaphragm and do not have any contraindications to this method, they will receive a prescription for this method to be filled at the pharmacy of their choice. If participants choose Depo-Provera (the shot), they will receive their first shot on the day of their visit and a prescription for repeat shots every 3 months. If participants choose to have an IUD or Implant as their method of birth control, they will be randomized to one of two groups. There is a 50% chance of having the intrauterine device (IUD) or Implant placed immediately after the counseling session and a 50% chance of receiving a list of local clinics that can place the device at a later time.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Non-LARC Group: Short Acting Method
All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling"). Participants who chose a short-acting hormonal method (e.g. contraceptive pills, ring, or patch) will receive a prescription to the pharmacy of their choice, as is the current practice for students who present for contraceptive services
Other: Prescription for Short-Acting Hormonal Contraception
Participants who chose a short-acting hormonal method (e.g. contraceptive pills, ring, or patch) will receive a prescription to the pharmacy of their choice

All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling"). Randomized to referral for LARC placement to local clinic.
Other: Referral for Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)
Referral to local clinic for LARC placement of choice (Mirena, Skyla, Paragard, Implanon, etc.)

Active Comparator: LARC Group: Same Day LARC Placement
All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling"). Randomized to same day LARC placement (intervention).
Drug: Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)
Same day LARC placement (intervention) of Mirena, Skyla, Paragard, Implanon




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants Reporting Ongoing Use and Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Proportion of LARC uptake among women, by group assignment. This will be evaluated based on participants' self-reported LARC usage on the 3-month questionnaire and will be defined as the prevalence of LARC uptake in the study group after the initial visit.3 months following placement of LARC device, participants will complete a questionnaire in order to assess ongoing use and satisfaction of their contraceptive method. This will be measured on the 3-month questionnaire and
