Reducing Bleeding with the Hormonal IUD

The Women's Health Research Unit is recruiting for a clinical research study evaluating if a drug can help reduce irregular bleeding after starting the hormonal IUD.

eIRB study # 15881, PI:  Jeffrey Jensen, MDMirena Bleeding Study Image

Trial Status: Actively enrolling

The purpose of this study is:

  • Have a valid e-mail address or a cell phone that is capable of sending and receiving text or e-mail message
  • Are planning to get a hormonal IUD (Mirena or Liletta) at OHSU
