Date:1/28/2008

Health & Urology(TM), Division of Ortho-McNeil- Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the maker of ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN(R) LO (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol), who commissioned the survey, to launch an online educational program called Count on Me. The program, featuring Jane's Top 10 Count on Me Tips, educational information, and sweepstakes, is now available at http://www.thepill.com.

Relying on Others, Even When It's Personal

More than half of women surveyed said that they count on friends and family for one or more of the following: general emotional support, care taking, and relationship and health advice. However, where they turn for health advice varies, depending on the sensitivity of the topic.

For general health information and advice, about two thirds of women surveyed said they rely on their mothers (68 percent) and their healthcare professionals (67 percent), followed by their partners or spouses (50 percent), the Internet (46 percent), or a friend (37 percent).

When the health topic is more personal, like sexual health, birth control, and their periods, more women said they rely on their healthcare professional (76 percent), or even the Internet (28 percent), before their mother (26 percent), friend (25 percent), or their partner or spouse (19 percent).

Relying on the Pill

They also overwhelmingly agreed (99 percent) that it is important to know their birth control pill is reliable, and not just for pregnancy prevention. In fact, more than two thirds of those surveyed said they look for a reliable birth control pill to provide predictable monthly periods. Half of women surveyed acknowledged that they had experienced irregular or unexpected bleeding between periods (also known as breakthrough bleeding) while taking the pill, while nearly a third added that they had stopped taking the pill, or switched to another pill, because of this side effect.
