Developing mHealth Messages to Promote Post-menstrual Regulation Contraceptive Use in Bangladesh: Participatory Interview Study
The study was conducted by researchers at the Marie Stopes Bangladesh & Maries Stopes Intl., IPAS Bangladesh and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The researchers found that Women were open to both receiving messages about family planning methods on their mobile phones and talking to a counselor about family planning methods over the phone after their menstrual regulation. Women most commonly wanted information about the contraceptive method they were currently using and wanted this information to be tailored to their particular needs. Women preferred voice messages to text and liked the interactive voice message format. When asked to repeat and identify the main points of the messages, women demonstrated good understanding of the content. Women did not seem too concerned with privacy or with others reading the messages and welcomed including their husbands in speaking to a counselor.
