Contraception

Counselor and patient discussing contraception
  • We found that women were most satisfied with their chosen contraceptive method when their healthcare provider facilitated shared decision making and did not have a preference for which method the woman chose.
  • With our research partners, we found that pharmacists in California expressed strong intentions and comfort in prescribing hormonal contraception directly to women, potentially increasing access, use and adherence.
