  • Changes in circulating lipoproteins, which may be related to the risk for atherosclerotic vascular disease, were studied in a control group and in two groups of 24 or 26 women using different preparations of low-dose oral contraceptives for 3 months. One preparation contained 150 micrograms levo-norgestrel and 30 micrograms ethinylestradiol (Stediril-d 150/30); the other contained 750 micrograms lynestrenol and 37.5 micrograms ethinylestradiol (Ministat). No significant changes were found with… CONTINUE READING
