Randomized Trial of Home Versus Clinic-based Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections
This study randomizes women using long-acting reversible methods of contraception to home-based STD screening through the mail compared to screening available in a clinical setting. We hypothesize that women randomized to home-based screening will be more likely to complete screening.
