Patient Q&A Section

What are common treatments for contraception behavior?

"The prevalence of contraceptive technology use is relatively low in women. This is contrary to prevailing public health campaigns for enhanced cervical cancer prevention and contraception. However, contraceptive behaviors are changing as the number of women aged 15-44 becomes steadily older, yet there is a greater acceptance, rather than disapproval, toward long delay between starting use of contraception and marriage." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

How many people get contraception behavior a year in the United States?

"Fewer women in the United States report the use of contraception than men, and many women believe that the use of contraception is a reflection of their general well-being rather than the contraceptive behavior." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of contraception behavior?

"If a female is willing to seek help with contraceptive behaviors, she can exhibit signs of wanting to do so. However, if other signs of interest and intention for behavior are present, further help with her contraception is a consideration." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What causes contraception behavior?

"Although social norms, availability, and affordability often affect contraception, the most important factor in encouraging healthy men to use a male contraceptive is their perceptions of the risks. It is important to have a clear understanding of the risks of male contraceptives." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Can contraception behavior be cured?

"For some women, contraception can be cured. For more than 40% of women, contraception is now one of their most important lifestyle goals, and can be changed from a priority of lower risk behavior to a goal of enhanced risk-reduction. However, it is important that there be no undue pressure on the women that is not medically warranted to adhere to such a demanding lifestyle goal." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is contraception behavior?

"There are many misconceptions surrounding contraception. The most widespread of these misconceptions is that long-acting birth control methods do not work and that there is little to no benefit in using birth control to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. The data provide a better insight on women's contraceptive beliefs." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Does choice-aya improve quality of life for those with contraception behavior?

"Choices-aya improved all aspects of QOL for those with contraception behavior. The choice of contraceptive method was strongly associated with quality of life, while all other aspects were associated with choice-aya use, with the exception of time perspective." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Is choice-aya typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"The choice-aya regimen is commonly used in place of one or more treatments, often in conjunction with other treatments. The choice-aya regimen appears to have low contraceptive efficacy, at least for women on the oral contraceptive pill who use it with a IUD." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How does choice-aya work?

"AYA is being advertised as a 'caring' alternative to standard contraceptive methods that is being promoted in more than 30 countries, including Canada. However, there is little research on how AYA performs. We need to understand how the effectiveness of these new contraceptive methods is perceived by men and women. If women were willing to accept an intervention that improves on their current method, they should." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving choice-aya?

"A choice-aya is not always the "right" way to deal with the need for contraception. Most women and couples do not know of these other options." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Has choice-aya proven to be more effective than a placebo?

"Although a more recent study could not confirm the previous finding of greater odds for choosing a non-estrogen pill, some results seemed to show that women in India seem to prefer choice aya over a placebo.\nThe non-estrogen pill is safer for long-term use and it does not negatively affect women's sexual function at doses as low as 300 μg/day. However, the lack of results from other studies and the lack of statistical significance for placebo-treated women in India, as well as the other non-estrogenic pill, suggest that other methods of contraception like sterilization might be more effective, so that a good choice aya (for this purpose) is of limited use." - Anonymous Online Contributor
