SLOPE (Sexual Orientation and Pregnancy Experiences) Study

Research shows that it’s not just straight people who get their teen partners pregnant, and our research team would like to learn more about this important, but often overlooked, health issue.

Study Information

We are seeking participants to take part in a one-time session to help us learn more about people’s experiences. Participants will complete a one-time confidential survey online and a 45-60 minute interview via telephone. As compensation, participants will receive a $20 Visa gift card.


To be eligible, participants must:

  • have had a partner with a positive pregnancy test before the partner was 20 years old; AND
  • at some point in their life:
    • have been attracted to another man, OR
    • had a male partner, OR
    • identified as mostly heterosexual, bisexual, mostly homosexual, or completely homosexual (e.g., gay).
