Women on Oʻahu over the age of 18 have the opportunity to be a part of scientific advancement and contribute to the health of all women by taking part in a clinical trial involving a new birth control device. Women will also receive free birth control and financial reimbursement for their time.
The clinical trial involves a novel vaginal contraceptive ring, and is being run by the Family Planning Division of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health at the University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM).
Contraceptive options are needed
Not every birth control method is right for every woman. That’s why having different birth control options improves the health of women. The University is pleased to have an opportunity to be a part of an innovative study that will provide women with a new option for safe and effective birth control.
Women might feel nervous about participating in a clinical trial, but by the time medications or devices get to the point of clinical trials, they have already been highly scrutinized. Participating in a clinical trial can a great way for women to be a part of scientific advancement and discovery and improve health for all women.
We encourage women 18 and over who are interested hearing more about this opportunity to contact us via email, text, or phone. Participants will be reimbursed up to $400 for their time.
