Contraception clinical trials at UCSD

6 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • Patient-Centered Reproductive Decision Support Tool for Women Veterans

    open to eligible females ages 18-44

    The investigators have developed a web-based decision support tool to help women Veterans get the information and care they need to achieve their reproductive goals, whether that includes optimizing their health before desired pregnancies or birth control to avoid unwanted pregnancies. The study will test the effect of sending a weblink to the decision tool to women Veterans prior to primary care visits at the VA. Half of participants will be sent a weblink before their appointment, and half will not be sent the link. The investigators hypothesize that participants who are sent the link will be more likely to report patient-centered discussions of their reproductive needs at visits, feel confident in communicating with their health care providers, have accurate knowledge about reproductive health, and choose birth control methods that best fit their preferences and needs.

  • Progestin-only Contraception on Bleeding Patterns in Individuals Initiating GATT

    open to eligible people ages 18-50

    Gender diverse individuals who use gender-affirming testosterone therapy (GATT) to reduce gender dysphoria may also use progestins for contraception and to manage or suppress uterine bleeding. Research is limited, however, regarding expected bleeding patterns for individuals who choose to initiate GATT concurrently with a progestin. Clinicians who prescribe GATT do not have sufficient data to adequately counsel patients on side effects of concurrent progestin use and therefore extrapolate from studies conducted in cisgender women. This study is a prospective cohort study evaluating bleeding patterns and satisfaction among patients initiating GATT with or without concurrent initiation of a progestin contraceptive. The results from this study will enable clinicians to more accurately counsel patients using GATT on how the use of a progestin might affect their bleeding and whether this differs by progestin method.

  • Intervening on Women's Health for Rural Young Breast Cancer Survivors

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multi-component intervention to improve young breast cancer survivors' engagement in goal-concordant oncofertility care, concurrently with observing and gathering information on how the intervention is implemented. The investigators hypothesize that implementation of the intervention will result in increased young breast cancer survivors' engagement in goal-concordant oncofertility care.

  • Postpartum Integration of Vaccines and Contraception Trial

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study aims to examine how to implement a gender-transformative post-partum family planning program integrated into community-based infant vaccination services, and to evaluate preliminary effectiveness of this approach on postpartum contraceptive use in a low resource, rural setting.

  • Tipping Point: Using Social Network Theory to Accelerate Scale and Impact

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will assess the nature and impact of social norms and networks to promote FP (Family Planning) intervention effects among low parity, married adolescent and young women in the Maradi region of Niger. Research activities will be layered on top of the USAID-funded Kulawa FP program that seeks to change FP-related behaviors among young, low parity women at scale in Niger in a subset of implementing villages. Kulawa, implemented by Save the Children U.S. (SCUS) and funded by USAID (2020-2025), will include small-group discussion for young, low parity girls coupled with community dialogues to address individual, social, and health system constraints to FP use and influence social norms that govern FP use. UCSD will not provide any services or implement any interventions as part of this study.

  • Keep Contraceptive Arm Long Acting-iMplant (CALM) and Carry On

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The investigators will conduct an observational study comparing the number of bleeding days before and after contraceptive implant (Nexplanon) replacement.
