Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Women were recruited from the University of Colorado Denver campus by direct physician referral or from advertisements in the University community.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Women using systemic hormonal contraception (patch, pill, ring) were required to have a 30 day hormone washout prior to placement. One subject signed the consent, but failed to meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria during the screening process. Thus, there were 39 women that were enrolled, but only 38 that started in the participant flow.
