Non-Hormonal Birth Control

Are you a woman who is looking for a different birth control option?

Coastal Connecticut Research has been involved in a variety of birth control studies over the years.  We are currently conducting the AMPOWER Clinical Research study which is testing the safety and effectiveness of a new, investigational, non-hormonal form of birth control that is to be used up to 1 hour before intercourse takes place.  The gel is believed to work by maintaining the pH of the vagina in order to prevent sperm mobility in addition to preventing sperm from reaching an egg.

Some women opt for non-hormonal contraceptive methods because they may be sensitive to the potential side effects of hormones, or perhaps they have a health history precluding their use or hormones.  Some women seeking birth control also may like the flexibility of a method such as a contraceptive gel to be used before intercourse, rather than committing to a more long term form of birth control such as an IUD or contraceptive implant.
