The Family Planning clinic of the UNICAMP brings together researchers with solid experience in teaching, research and assistance in Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine in Brazil and has national and international recognition for implementing a joint proposal for research and development, which translates into real benefits for the science and for the country. This study group has extensive experience in research on contraception, especially devoted to research on long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), not only in use for contraception but also to the benefits in treating diseases. Therefore, our research line cover different stages of the female reproductive life cycle and prevalent medical conditions and have in common the influence of these different contraceptive methods to metabolism, bleeding disorders, lifestyle, and satisfaction. This line of research reflects an intense and productive activity regarding to the potential for incorporation of substantial advances in the health science and knowledge in reproductive medicine, but also in future transformation of the results obtained in regional policies to promote women's health. Therefore, it is important to note that in addition to the scientific research, population-based studies, projects directly linked to public agencies of health, research on populations susceptible as women with abnormal bleeding, diseases such as lupus, osteoporosis, among others, will allow greater dialogue with the public sector and society.
