Sex hormones have been shown to influence tobacco use behaviors in women during the postpartum period. This new study proposes an innovative intervention to examine the effect of modifying progesterone and estradiol (using Depoprovera injections and exogenous progesterone) to prevent postpartum smoking relapse which will improve health outcomes for mothers and their children.
