  • Unwanted Family Planning: Prevalence Estimates for 56 Countries. [Journal Article]
    Stud Fam Plann. 2023 Jan 27 [Online ahead of print]Canning D, Karra M
  • While there is a large literature on the prevalence of unmet need for family planning, there is no matching quantitative evidence on the prevalence of unwanted family planning; all contraceptive use is assumed to represent a "met need." This lack of evidence raises concerns that some observed contraceptive use may be undesired and coercive. We provide estimates of unwanted family planning using D…
  • Informed Contraceptive Decisions: A Qualitative Study of Hispanic Teens in New Mexico. [Case Reports]
    Womens Health Rep (New Rochelle). 2022; 3(1):982-989.Perez M, Chambers S, … Baca M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Among both LARC and non-LARC groups, peer influence was the most frequently cited reason for contraceptive decision making. Relationships with family were cited as barriers for Hispanic teens, where lack of communication and abstinence-only beliefs made it difficult to seek contraception. Findings demonstrate that teens selected LARCs because of the impacts on menstrual cycles and clinician influence. Teens who did not self-select LARC discussed ease of protection and the utilization of birth control as a transition to LARC.

    Rev Med Suisse. 2022 Nov 30; 18(806):2285-2288.Gregoris A, Tran SN, Benamran D
  • Male contraception plays a small role in global contraception. However, safe and effective means exist and are available with a low failure rate, such as vasectomy or to a lesser extent, condoms. Other so-called natural methods are used despite being less effective, such as periodic abstinence or withdrawal. Finally, new methods are currently being evaluated or developed, such as thermal contrace…

    Clin Pharmacol Ther. 2022 10; 112(4):901-908.Helmer E, Karimian N, … Namour FS
  • In vitro signals indicate that ziritaxestat is a weak cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 inhibitor and inducer. Therefore, potential drug-drug interactions (DDIs) with oral contraceptives were examined at a time when ziritaxestat was under development for treatment of fibrotic diseases. This open-label, crossover (fixed sequence) DDI study enrolled healthy, nonpregnant women aged 18-65 years (n = 15) who …
