Taking a Chance Every Month?

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Are you a sexually active woman who should be using birth control on a regular basis but isn’t?

It’s the heat of the moment and you and your partner are about to get down and funky.  You’ve been together for several years, and he flat out refuses to wear a condom, saying it doesn’t fit right. Or, if he does use a condom, he does so with a bit of complaint.  You’ve tried the pill, depo-shots, IUD’s, and the feeling of bloat, mood swings and discomfort left you feeling kind of crummy.  There have been a few months you’ve been so caught up in the excitement or romance you have neglected to use birth control.  These moments of forgetfulness can lead to a heck of a lot of responsibility 9 months down the road!

Coastal Connecticut Research in New London is conducting a birth control study testing a non-hormonal gel.  Female volunteers are needed for the study.  You will receive the investigational product at no cost. Reimbursement of up to $100 per visit is available for time and travel.  There are 5 study visits over the course of the 36 week research study period.  Dr. Robert Spitz is the local study doctor. All visits take place on Montauk Avenue in New London.

We look forward to hearing from you today.

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.
