Earlier this year, we ran an additional survey in which we solicited feedback from new and returning users to make Bedsider even more awesome. The results below provide an overview of the feedback we received, highlighting the things Bedsider is doing well, as well as areas we’re currently improving.
The majority of respondents indicated that they came to Bedsider for information related to birth control, followed closely by those indicating that they were seeking answers to questions they had about birth control. Respondents also indicated that they visited Bedsider for articles on topics related to sex and relationships, as well as for help finding a health care clinic and/or provider.
Moving forward, we’re going to continue providing you great content related to all things birth control and also be including new content related to sexually transmitted infections and sex and relationships.
When asked about how well Bedsider meets their current needs, the majority of users responded very well or extremely well. We’re thrilled to hear that Bedsider content resonates with our users, and to ensure it continues to do so, we are dedicated to conducting regular surveys with users more generally to make sure our content is tackling all the questions you have related to sexual health, birth control, sex, love, and relationships.
When asked what kind of content they would like to see on Bedsider, the majority of respondents indicated they were interested in birth control, whether it was articles about different birth control methods or reviews from real users. This was followed closely by articles about sex and relationships and more videos and interactive features. Respondents who noted that they were interested in other types of content stated a need for information on STIs, where to locate free birth control, reviews of different types of birth control from real women, and more content related to sexual health and relationships.
We are currently in the midst of expanding our content related to birth control and incorporating first-person narratives that reflect the birth control experience—especially among women of color. We are also producing content that is more interactive and will be soon rolling out new features to include polling and voting on Bedsider.
Stay tuned to see how we incorporate these changes and continue to improve Bedsider.
