It’s a fact: Approximately 50% of pregnancies in the U.S. are unintended, despite the fact that 62% of women of reproductive age in the U.S. use contraceptives. These unplanned pregnancies could be due to dissatisfaction with a contraceptive product, lack of understanding of its correct use, or the inability to access an appropriate option.

Because of the side effects, adverse events, or lack of spontaneity that can be associated with available contraceptive methods, approximately 40% of women are not satisfied with their current contraceptive method.

New and improved contraceptives that are easy to use, safe, and with limited side effects would contribute to an individual’s control over the number and timing of childbearing.

To help resolve the problems in women’s health, Clinipace Worldwide has developed an informative eBook, “Trials in Women’s Health: 7 Best Practices to Drive Time and Cost Savings for Your Contraceptive Clinical Trial,” which is now available for download here.
