Share your experiences getting birth control from GoodRx Care during the COVID-19 pandemic

What is the study about?

This study will explore people’s experiences getting their birth control from GoodRx Care during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to understand the range of birth control services users sought and received, as well as people’s views on the quality and acceptability of this telemedicine service. We will also seek to understand how online visits compare to in-person visits with health care providers among people who have gotten birth control from an in-person provider in the past.

How is the study being conducted?

The study will gather information through an online survey. It should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Why participate?

There is very little research about the background and experiences of patients using online providers for birth control in the United States. The more we can document people’s stories – both positive and negative – about seeking or obtaining contraception, the more we can advocate for this information to be part of improving how people access contraceptive information and services. Individuals who choose to complete the online survey will be entered into a raffle to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards.

Who created this study?

This survey was created by Ibis Reproductive Health, a non-profit research organization.

What is GoodRx Care’s role in this study?

GoodRx Care’s primary role in this study is to send the online survey information and link to people who sought birth control services for the first time from GoodRx Care since the COVID-19 national emergency was declared on March 13, 2020. Ibis Reproductive Health does not receive any funds from GoodRx Care for this study.
