Studies Needing Women Not at Risk for Pregnancy

  • Want to help develop an investigational birth control method?
    We are currently recruiting for a study to test an investigational birth control shot – BUT – this is not a birth control study. We are NOT looking for women who want to use this shot for birth control. We are looking for women who are not using hormones already and are not at risk of getting pregnant. This study will help us learn how long the shot works. For this study, women will get a shot of the study drug just once and then will be followed to see how long the drug will prevent them from releasing an egg. Click here to learn more.
