OBJECTIVES The primary objective was to assess the efficacy, cycle control and tolerability of a monophasic combined oral contraceptive (COC) containing nomegestrol acetate (NOMAC) and 17β-oestradiol (E2). Effects on acne were evaluated as a secondary objective. Results were compared to those of a COC containing drospirenone (DRSP) and ethinylestradiol(More)
Changes to the pattern of menstrual bleeding are almost universal in women using progestogen-only methods of contraception, and are an important cause of discontinuation of these methods. The present study was designed to explore the changes in menstrual bleeding patterns and objectively measure menstrual blood loss (MBL) in 110 women before and during one(More)

Quality of life and acceptability of treatment delivery were also assessed. (More)
