Contraception clinical trials at UCSD

4 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Early vs. Interval Postpartum IUD Insertion

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are historically placed at a six-week postpartum visit for women who desire intrauterine contraception after delivery. A two-week postpartum visit could be a convenient time for women to receive contraception, including IUDs. Offering women IUDs at two-weeks postpartum may decrease the risk of undesired pregnancy and rapid repeat pregnancy. This study will compare IUD insertion at two different times after delivery: two-weeks and six-weeks postpartum. This will allow researchers to assess whether the timing of IUD placement affects whether an IUD is expelled, or pushed out of it's ideal location.

  • Assessment of Contraceptive Safety and Effectiveness in Cystic Fibrosis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The long-term goal is to study the safety and effectiveness of hormonal contraception for women with cystic fibrosis (CF) and contribute to national guidelines that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide to clinicians. The study objectives are to determine whether hormonal contraceptive methods improve overall pulmonary health, worsen CF-related disease or CF liver disease, or are effective against unwanted pregnancy with concomitant CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulator use. The hypothesis is that hormonal contraceptive methods are safe and do not worsen CF-related complications over time,improve FEV-1 when compared to non-hormonal users, and oral birth control methods with CFTR modulator use.

  • Contraception for Solid Organ Transplant Patients: Utilizing Social Media

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to use an electronic survey to explore Solid Organ Transplant patients' contraceptive knowledge and counseling. The results from this survey will be used to help identify awareness gaps to potentially develop targeted interventions for comprehensive education.

  • Evaluating Household Visits and Small Groups to Increase Contraception Use Among Married Adolescent Girls in Rural Niger

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This study entails a quasi-experimental, mixed-methods (i.e., complementary quantitative and qualitative) outcome evaluation to assess the efficacy of the Reaching Married Adolescents (RMA) Interventions developed and implemented by Pathfinder International to increase contraception use and contraception use intentions among married adolescent girls ages 13-19 in three rural districts of the Dosso region of Niger. Intervention models (gender-synchronized household visits and small groups) will be tested using a randomized 4-arm outcome evaluation design; Arm 1 will receive household visits, Arm 2 will receive small groups; Arm 3 will receive household visits plus small groups, and Arm 4 will serve as the control group and will not receive any intervention. The quantitative component will consist of collecting quantitative baseline, 16-months follow-up, and 27-months survey data from randomly selected married adolescent girls (n=1200) and their husbands (n=1200) who are participating in each Arm of the study. Qualitative elements will include ethnography at two time points and semi-structured in-depth interviews half way through intervention implementation. A costing and cost effectiveness analysis will also be conducted to evaluate which intervention provides the largest gain in the primary outcomes for each dollar spent.
