Women in the study will have 4 visits during the 12 months of the study:
The first visit is a screening and enrollment visit. We will determine if you are eligible to take part in the study. This visit will include the consent, medical history and birth control implant placement. If you decide you want to come back to have the implant placed on a different day, we can make that arrangement. After the implant is placed, you will be given diaries to complete once a day and return them at your follow up visits.
You will have follow-up visits at the research office about 3, 6 and 12 months after the implant is placed. At these visits, we will collect your diaries, see if you’ve had any problems, and discuss your satisfaction with your birth control methods.
During the study, you can ask to have the implant removed if you don’t want to keep using it. You can also stop using your birth control pill if you want to. It is all up to you. For this study, we want to follow you for a full 12 months no matter if you choose to stop using either the pill or the implant.
At the end of the 12 months, you can choose to continue to use the birth control implant after the study.
