New York Times article: Why Some Women Might Want 'Missed-Period Pills'

The New York Times recently published an article featuring our Missed Period Pill project. This is the first study to assess potential interest in missed period pills (medical menstrual regulation) in the United States. Patrick Adams’ piece “Why Some Women Might Want ‘Missed-Period Pills’” details how that if missed period pills were available in the US, demand might be substantial. Our findings offer a unique window into the service preferences of people with early missed periods who seek care at reproductive health centers. They suggest that some people do not desire pregnancy confirmation before taking medications that might disrupt a pregnancy.
