Johns Hopkins has rules to protect information about you. Federal and state laws also protect your privacy. The people working on the study will collect information about you. This includes things learned from the pelvic exam and results of laboratory tests. They will also collect other information including your name, address, date of birth, and other details. You will be asked to respond to surveys and answer questions about private details of your personal life.
Be assured that the information we collect from you throughout your involvement in the study will be kept strictly confidential. Your survey responses, pelvic exam, and lab test results will be identified only by your unique study ID. There will be no direct link between your name and the information we collect.
