Female Condom and Vaginal Ring Study
This research study is testing how well a female condom performs when it is used during sex when a woman is wearing a vaginal ring, compared to when she is not.
We are looking for couples who can tell us how well the condoms work with the vaginal ring and what they like and don’t like about them.
The vaginal ring used in this study will not contain any medication.
Who is Eligible
Couples must be monogamous and protected from pregnancy by a hormonal method, an IUD, or sterilization.
What Couples Will Do in the Female Condom and Vaginal Ring Study
If you participate, you will use four condoms with a vaginal ring and four condoms without a vaginal ring at home and report how well they worked.
Both partners will attend a screening visit where they will go over study information and complete paperwork.
The female partner will return for three clinic visits. Each clinic visit will include a gynecological exam. Both partners will complete questionnaires about study condom use.
Couples can earn up to $425. All study condoms and supplies are provided free of charge.
