Chemokine expression is dysregulated in the endometrium of women using progestin-only contraceptives and correlates to elevated recruitment of distinct leukocyte populations.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Breakthrough bleeding (BTB) is the most common reason for discontinuation of progestin-only (p-only) contraceptives, yet the causes are unknown. Use of p-only contraceptives is associated with elevated influx of endometrial leukocytes, similar to that observed perimenstrually or within decidualized endometrium. We hypothesized that chemokine… (More)
