Condom Study

This research study will compare two experimental condoms with a commercially available latex condom. We will enroll approximately 300 couples into the study to use a total of 15 condoms at home. If you join the study, you and your partner will use five polyurethane condoms of each design and five commercial latex condoms during the courses of approximately 9 weeks.  All study supplies, including condoms and lubricant are provided at no cost to you. You and your partner may each receive up to $150 for your participation. This research study will compare two experimental condoms with a commercially available latex condom.

What Will Happen During the Study: 

First, both you and your partner will attend a video conference visit where you will meet with a study representative to learn more about the study and sign an electronic informed consent if you agree to participate. We will then phone you and your partner separately to ask you some personal screening questions.  If you and your partner are eligible to participate, you will both attend a curbside enrollment visit, where you will receive your first set of 5 study condoms and study forms. During the study, you will have 2 more curbside resupply visits and a final curbside visit to turn in your last set of completed study forms.  After your last curbside visit you will have a short exit phone call to clarify any questions about your study forms.

Compensation: 

After completing the study, you and your partner will each receive $150 on a cash card.
