The purpose of this project is to remove barriers to obtaining contraceptive methods, including the most effective and expensive methods. The study seeks to remove the financial and knowledge barriers and promote the most effective contraceptive methods to reduce unintended pregnancy rates at the population level.

Unintended Pregnancy Teen Births Abortion Contraception

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: The Contraceptive Choice Project

Further study details as provided by Jeffrey Peipert, Washington University School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Distribution of contraceptive method chosen [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Distribution of methods (%) chosen at baseline enrollment, by method and stratified by Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC: intrauterine device and implant) and non-LARC (depotmedroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA), oral contraceptive pill (OCP), vaginal ring, transdermal patch).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Method Continuation [ Time Frame: 6-month, 12 month, 24-month, and 36-month ]
    % of women using each method at 6, 12-, 24, and 36 months post-enrollment. Hazard rates via survival analysis comparing LARC and non-LARC methods.

  • Method Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 12-month, 24-month, 36-month ]
    % of women very or somewhat satisfied with method at 12, 24, and 36 months of use. Comparison of all methods and stratified by LARC and non-LARC methods.

  • Teen Pregnancy Rates [ Time Frame: 1-year, 2-year, 3-year ]
    Number of pregnancies per participants 15-19 years of age. We will calculate an annual rate for each year from 2007-2013 and also calculate a rate for the cohort followed for 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years.

  • Repeat Abortion Rates [ Time Frame: 1-year, 2-year, 3-year ]
    Number of abortions among participants 15-44 with a history of abortion. We will calculate an annual rate for each year from 2007-2013 and also calculate a rate for the cohort followed for 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years.

  • Sexually transmitted infection rates [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12-months ]
    Baseline prevalence rates (number positive divided by number tested) for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomonas. 1-year incidence rates for the same infections among those who tested at 1-year.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
vaginal swab specimens for chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis. Blood specimens for HIV and syphilis.
