Contraception decision making

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

These projects examined a decision aid for women seeking reversible contraception and examined women’s contraceptive preferences among those initiating a new contraceptive method. Additional projects examined preferences for the format of information about contraception.

These projects were led by Dr. Tessa Madden.
