Currently Recruiting 

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh are currently looking for participants for the "My Decision" research study. The purpose of this study is to test an interactive decision aid designed to help women make decisions about tubal sterilization (also known as "getting one's tubes tied" or "tubal ligation"). 

Participants will be asked to complete a total of three confidential interviews about tubal sterilization. Interviews will be conducted at Magee-Womens Hospital or over the phone and will be scheduled at your convenience. This research study does not involve any treatments or medications. Compensation will be provided. 

The MyDecision study will help other women get the information they need to make decisions about whether tubal sterilization is right for them. 

Eligible Participants Must: 

  • Be pregnant
  • Be thinking about having a tubal sterilization after the delivery of their baby
  • Be eligible for Medicaid
