Trust and Respect in birth control experiences 

Planned Parenthood and the University of Minnesota are working together to understand how birth control is experienced by people of color. They also want to know about trust and respect between people of color and clinics like Planned Parenthood.

This research project seeks to understand how values, needs, and motivations related to birth control and going to clinics like Planned Parenthood impact lived experiences and birth control choices among people of color, their families, and their communities. 

We interviewed folks of color in the Twin Cities Metro area about their experiences with abortion, trust and respect in health care, and long-term birth control options. These interviews will be used to create educational videos and presentations for Planned Parenthood clinics and the public. 

Participants were eligible to participate if they:

  • Speak English 
  • Are between 18 and 45 years old 
  • Are not currently pregnant 
  • Have had an abortion in the past two years 
  • Are in the Twin Cities Metro area 
  • Have ever had a health care provider talk to them about getting an IUD (Mirena, Liletta, Skyla, Paragard) or Implant (Nexplanon) 

Participants will be compensated with a $50 gift card. 

Enrollment in the study is now complete and data analysis is underway. This page will be updated with the findings once they become available.
