• An Actual Use Study on Pericoital LNG 1.5mg in Ghana
  • Globally there is currently no modern method that women can use discreetly, only when they need it, easy to remember, and not interrupting intercourse. Experts have been exploring the possibility of developing an on-demand or pericoital (“around the time of sex”) contraceptive for women’s use. Recent research on pericoital LNG 1.5mg suggest the method is safe, reasonably effective, and acceptable to women, recommending further research on pericoital use of LNG 1.5mg. The goal of this actual use study is to provide users with clear advice and support on pericoital use of LNG 1.5mg, monitoring correct and incorrect use in Kenya and Ghana. The study will test the feasibility and acceptability of pharmacy provision of LNG 1.5mg to women, gather real life data on pericoital use of LNG 1.5mg and associated behaviors, and document side effects, if any.
