OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of miPlan, a waiting-room contraceptive counseling mobile application (app), on interest in discussing long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) during the clinical encounter and LARC uptake. STUDY DESIGN: This randomized controlled trial evaluated the miPlan contraceptive counseling app. African American and Latina young women ages 15 to 29years attending four family planning clinics in a large Midwestern city were randomized to either: 1) use miPlan (intervention) prior to the contraceptive clinic visit or 2) contraceptive clinic visit alone (control)...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the utility of a patient-level information video as part of the contraception consultation visit. Specifically, to assess the impact of the video on women's contraception choice, and, further, to assess patient and provider acceptability of incorporating the video into the patient visit. METHODS: A pre-post study design was used to assess the impact on patients' contraceptive choices and knowledge. Participants (n = 49) answered questions regarding contraceptive preferences and knowledge of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), then watched a 12-minute patient-level counselling video that presented evidence-based information about contraception in descending order of effectiveness...

Intrauterine device (IUD) insertion is a long-acting and one of the most effective modes of reversible contraception. Complications that most commonly arise following IUD insertion are failed insertion, pain, vasovagal reactions, infection, menstrual abnormalities, and expulsion. In this paper, we present the case of a woman who experienced hydronephrosis due to the migration of IUD into the ureter after 30 years of insertion. To the best of our knowledge, this is the third such case reported in the literature...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether auxiliary nurse-midwife provision of medical abortion in pharmacies is associated with reduced post-abortion contraceptive use in Nepal. METHODS: The present prospective observational study compared contraceptive use among women aged 16-45 years and up to 63 days of pregnancy, who presented at one of six privately-owned pharmacies or six public health facilities in the Chitwan and Jhapa districts of Nepal for medical abortion between October 16, 2014, and September 1, 2015...

Background: The intrauterine contraceptive device is one of the modern long-acting and reversible contraception that is very safe and effective. Yet, less than 2 % of women are using intrauterine devices in Ghana. This study therefore explored the experiences and barriers to intrauterine contraceptive device use and discontinuation in Greater Accra Region, Ghana. Methods: Intrauterine contraceptive device users and providers were purposively selected from eight private family planning clinics in the Greater Accra Region...

Subdermal and intrauterine progestin releasing systems are two types of long- acting reversible contraceptive systems(LARC). Their use has transformed current contraceptive practice management. There is not much objective evidence to help to decide which method is preferable and in which particular circumstance, using objective criteria. Areas covered: MEDLINE, POPLINE, PubMed and were searched using the terms 'implant' vs 'IUS' and then adding the terms 'levonorgestrel and 'etonogestrel' to the implant arm and 'levonorgestrel' to the IUS arm...

BACKGROUND: Although it is known that pregnancy intention impacts contraceptive use, there has been little exploration into the relationship between pregnancy intention and long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) non-use in the Australian context. METHODS: Semi-structured telephone interviews with a sample of participants from the Contraceptive Use, Pregnancy Intention and Decisions (CUPID) Study were conducted in 2016. RESULTS: Of the 59 women contacted, 15 participated in an interview...

BACKGROUND: One in six pregnancies in Britain are unplanned. An understanding of influences on contraceptive method choice is essential to provision compatible with users' lifestyles. This study describes contraceptive method use by age, and relationship status and duration, among women in Britain. METHODS: Data from women participating in the third British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles were used to describe contraceptive use grouped as: unreliable method or none; barrier methods; oral/injectable hormonal methods; and long-acting reversible contraception...

Background: Group-based health services can improve maternal and newborn health outcomes. Group antenatal care and participatory learning and action cycles (PLA) with women's groups have been cited by the WHO as health systems interventions that can lead to improvements in adherence to care and health outcomes in pregnancy and the postpartum period. Methods: We used a mixed-methods approach to assess the feasibility of a light touch group-based support intervention using the WhatsApp text-messaging platform...

OBJECTIVE: In many low-resource settings around the world utilization of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is low, in part due to access barriers. We sought to explore LARC utilization patterns as well as factors associated with LARC initiation by women seeking contraception in rural Guatemala from a program working to reduce contraception access barriers. STUDY DESIGN: We analyzed data from a program that provides family planning in six remote, primarily indigenous, villages in Guatemala with limited access to alternative health services...

CONTEXT: Structural barriers to the provision of long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods at community health centers have been identified in quantitative research, but the processes and behaviors by which center staff respond to these barriers are poorly understood. METHODS: Focus group discussions were conducted with clinical, support and administrative staff at three Massachusetts community health centers between April 2014 and January 2015. The centers were purposively selected to constitute a sample with diverse characteristics...

Objective To assess LARC use trends among college women (18-24 years) and identify groups that have increased LARC use. Methods Data were extracted from the National College Health Assessment-II (NCHA-II) fall 2008-2013 surveys. Logistic regression statistics were used to assess LARC use. Results Although LARC use increased from 2008 to 2013 (aOR = 2.62; 95% CI 2.23-3.07), less than half of the sample (44%) reported using contraception at last vaginal sex. Only 2.5% of college women in this study reported using a LARC method; of LARC users, 90% reported using an intrauterine device...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the ability of electronic health record (EHR) data extracted into a data-sharing system to accurately identify contraceptive use. STUDY DESIGN: We compared rates of contraceptive use from electronic extraction of EHR data via a data-sharing system and manual abstraction of the EHR among 142 female patients ages 15-49years from a family medicine clinic within a primary care practice-based research network (PBRN). Cohen's kappa coefficient measured agreement between electronic extraction and manual abstraction...

Patients were derived from a database of all deliveries from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2014 at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware, USA. Within this database, group prenatal care patients were identified and a two-to-one matched set of similar traditional prenatal care patients was created...
