MyVoice: A Family Planning Decision Aid for Women with Rheumatic Diseases 

MyVoice is an interactive website that was created to help women with autoimmune diseases to make family planning decisions. We are enrolling patients for a practice run where we hope to learn how easy MyVoice is to use and if people can see themselves using it. 

Participants will be randomized (like flipping a coin) to either use the MyVoice website or to read through a pamphlet on family planning and reproductive health. Participants will be asked to complete 2 study visits over 3 months. These study visits can be in person or remote. The study visits will include surveys and interviews with a research coordinator. Participants can earn up to $70. 

If you are interested in learning more about this research study, please contact the research coordinators.

REINA Registry: Longitudinal study of the reproductive outcomes of women with diverse rheumatic diseases 

This registry hopes to study how different factors affect reproductive health care and outcomes in women with autoimmune diseases. We want to look at how people’s interactions with the health care system, disease activity, medications, beliefs and practices, affect their reproductive outcomes.  

Participants in this registry will complete web-based surveys every 4 months after enrollment (either remotely or in person). Surveys will ask about people’s demographics as well as questions about family planning goals, disease activity, medication adherence, and reproductive knowledge. Participants can earn up to $100 per year of participation based on the number of surveys that they complete.
