The purpose of this study was to determine if there are enough eligible and willing volunteers in the New York Metro Area to conduct a larger study on the effects of various hormonal birth control formulations on breast tissue. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 1,000 volunteers from the Army of Women (AOW) from the New York Metro Area. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on October 7, 2015. The researchers closed enrollment on December 20, 2016, after the AOW provided them with 157 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
