Principal Investigator: Andrea Zuckerman, MD

This is a study to determine if a video that utilizes a peer to teach self administration of subcutaneous depot medroxyprogesterone is both effective and well accepted by adolescent patients who are already receiving ongoing treatment with depot medroxyprogesterone by a medical provider via an inter muscular injection.  Self administration can be done at home and therefore offers an alternative to traveling to a medical office.
