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.

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.
