Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Concentration (Cmax) (Pharmacokinentic Parameter (PK)) for All Subjects in the Pharmacokinetically Evaluable (ASPE) Group [ Time Frame: 21 days of active treatment and washout period thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cmax was measured using ethinylstradiol serum concentration at several time points during the 21 days of active treatment and the washout thereafter.

  • Area Under the Curve (AUC) 0-21 Days (PK Parameter) Measured for the ASPE Group [ Time Frame: 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC 0-21 days was measured using ethinylestradiol serum concentration using a radio-immune assay at several time points during the 21 days of active treatment

  • AUC 0-tlast (PK Parameter) for the ASPE Group. [ Time Frame: 21 days of active treatment and washout period thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC 0-tlast was measured using ethinylestradiol serum concentrations using a radio-immune assay at several time points during the 21 days of active treatment and the washout period thereafter.

  • AUC 0-infinity (PK Parameter) for the ASPE Group. [ Time Frame: 21 days of active treatment and the washout period thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC 0-infinity was measured using ethinylestradiol serum concentration using a radio-immune assay at several time points during the 21 days of active treatment and the washout period thereafter. AUC 0-infinity was calculated as AUC 0-tlast extrapolated to infinity using the regression line from which t 1/2 was calculated.
