Contraceptive CHOICE project round up: what we did and what we learned
The US Contraceptive CHOICE Project was a prospective cohort study of 9,256 women in the St. Louis area. The project provided no-cost reversible contraception to participants for 2-3 years with the goal of increasing uptake of long-acting reversible contraception and decreasing unintended pregnancy in the area.
Results from this project found that when barriers to contraception (cost, access and knowledge) were removed women choose the most effective and user-independent methods, method satisfaction and continuation rates were higher and unintended pregnancy and abortion rates were reduced.
