Non-Hormonal Birth Control

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

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.

 

Birth Control Research

Monday, July 10th, 2017

There are a myriad of options for women in the United States regarding contraceptive choices.  There are birth control pills, birth control implants, hormonal IUD’s, non-hormonal IUD’s, vaginal rings, contraceptive foams, condoms, barrier methods, and for some, natural family planning, often called “the rhythm method.”

We’ve come a long way since crocodile dung was used as a barrier method to block sperm during Cleopatra’s time!

At Coastal Connecticut Research in New London some of our research studies have tested investigational products for birth control.  Sponsors of these studies understand some women are looking for choices in regards to family planning.   Just as every woman in different, choices in pregnancy prevention will differ as well.

If you are a woman of child bearing age who is not interested in currently starting a family, and you would like to learn more about birth control clinical research studies, contact our team today at (860) 443-4567 or email marylou@ccrstudies.com.
