Endometriosis Cysts & Uterine Fibroids Does Not Define You!

Know All Your Options! A Clinical Trial for Oral Contraceptives Might Just Help.

Oral contraceptives, usually known as birth control pills, are a safe and effective way to avoid pregnancy. Another benefit of oral contraceptives is that they reduce the risk of two major gynecological cancers, ovarian and endometrial cancer. According to the CDC, over two-thirds of women of age 15 – 41 years old presently use some form of contraception.

Revive Research Institute is conducting Oral Contraceptives & Endometriosis Clinical Trials to further define the safety and efficacy of oral contraceptives for women with endometriosis or uterine fibroids – who are at risk of pregnancy.

You may qualify for our oral contraceptive study if you are a woman who is: 

  • 18 years to 50 years of age
  • Experiencing uterine fibroids or endometriosis and at risk of pregnancy
  • Willing to comply with all the study procedures

*Participation in this clinical research trial will be of zero cost to you or your private medical insurance. You will be reimbursed financially for your time and travel. In addition, all participants get free study-related treatment from doctors and health care experts.

*If you want to participate in the Oral Contraceptive Study or require more information, please fill out the form, so we can assess if you qualify and get in touch with you. Please keep in mind that your participation is completely optional. You may opt out of study anytime you want.

About Oral Contraceptive Study

 

The Oral Contraceptive & Endometriosis Clinical Trials is a Phase 3 trial that will evaluate the contraceptive effectiveness of a combination treatment. There are around 1020 sexually active women in the study.

The combo medication will be given orally once daily for up to six months as a type of contraception  for 1 year and will be monitored for the incidence of pregnancy.

The study is divided into three parts: a screening phase (Visit 1), a 52-week treatment period (Visits 2), and a follow-up period (Visits 3). Visits 1 through 6), a 14-day post-treatment Safety Follow-Up Period (Visit 7), and a 12-month Post-treatment Follow-Up period.

The evaluation results from Visit 1 will be used to establish participant eligibility.

All study medication procedures are provided at no cost to the participants. Participants who match the study’s eligibility criteria will also be reimbursed for their time and travel expenses.

Volunteering does not necessitate the purchase of insurance.

This is a phase 3, single arm, open-label treatment study, in which the participants will know which study drug is being given to them. In this study we are evaluating safety and contraceptive efficacy of study drugs in women with Uterine Fibroids or Endometriosis cysts.

About Endometriosis & Uterine Fibroids

Endometriosis Clinical Trials

Endometriosis is a painful condition in which the uterine tissues grow outside of the uterus. The abnormal growth sheds and bleeds monthly with every menstrual cycle however, due to the growths being outside of the uterus, it does not easily leave the body. An estimated 10% of women in their reproductive age suffer from Endometriosis cysts. The results are extreme menstrual pain to the point of disability, abnormal vaginal pain, pain during intercourse and chronic back and pelvic pain.

Another condition that resembles Endometriosis cysts is Uterine Fibroids. These are noncancerous growths inside and around the uterus that can be just painful. It affects around 26 million women with childbearing potential. Uterine Fibroids can cause extreme discomfort in the pelvic region, irregular and abnormal bleeding, and anemia. The condition is sometimes not detected until a pelvic exam is done because it usually does not have any symptoms. Masses of uterine fibroids are known to change the shape of the uterus.

Many of the symptoms of Uterine Fibroids and Endometriosis are similar so much so that endometriosis is usually mistaken for uterine fibroids. According to research, there is a connection between endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Both these conditions can occur together and can impact a woman’s fertility, negatively.
