Addressing the Knowledge Gap: Increasing Young Women's Familiarity with Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Using Digital Video

Investigator: Cynthia Harper, PhD

Location(s): United States


The Bixby Center will produce a video that addresses the particular concerns of young women about pregnancy prevention and the use of long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs), primarily using the voices and language of their peers. Videos will include:

  • basic facts on the risk of pregnancy, emphasizing the high chance of pregnancy among this age group. 
  • LARC methods, showing how much more effective they are than other contraceptive methods and how simple they are to use.
  • concerns about LARC side effects with accurate information and a sense of humor.
