OBJECTIVE Many observational studies indicate higher oral contraceptive failure among obese women, but most clinical trials and physiologic studies do not support these differences. Limited data indicate higher failure rates among obese contraceptive patch users. Data regarding contraceptive vaginal ring performance in obese women are needed. STUDY DESIGN(More)
BACKGROUND Validity of oral contraceptive pill (OCP) clinical trial results depends on participant compliance. Ethinyl estradiol (EE2) induces increases in hepatic binding globulin (BG) levels. Measuring these BG increases may provide an effective and convenient approach to distinguish noncompliant from compliant OCP users in research settings. This(More)
INTRODUCTION Etonogestrel (ENG) is a progestin used in the contraceptive vaginal ring NuvaRing and the subdermal implant Implanon. A sensitive method for measuring ENG is useful for further investigating the progestin's pharmacokinetics with these alternative contraceptive formulations and generating important information about possible continued efficacy(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to compare ovarian suppression during oral vs. vaginal hormonal contraceptive use. Secondary aims included comparison of endometrial thickness and bleeding patterns. METHODS In two open-label trials assessing ovarian suppression, 33 compliant women completed both studies. They first used oral contraceptive pills (OCs)(More)
BACKGROUND A single study shows that contraceptive vaginal ring (CVR) use for up to 35 days in women with a normal body mass index (BMI) maintains serum hormone levels sufficient to suppress ovulation. This study is intended to confirm those results and to evaluate prolonged CVR use up to 42 days in both normal BMI and obese women. STUDY DESIGN Twenty(More)
