Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a low dose transdermal contraceptive delivery system containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Contraception Drug: AG200-15 (cycles 1-13) Drug: Lessina crossover to AG200-15 Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Comparative evaluation of AG200-15 versus OC with regard to safety, contraceptive efficacy, cycle control (bleeding pattern), subject compliance and serum concentrations of EE and LNG. To evaluate TCDS wearability (including adhesion).

AG200-15 containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. Type of intervention is drug.
Drug: AG200-15 (cycles 1-13)
AG200-15 containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pregnancy [ Time Frame: AG200-15: 6 months; Lessina: 6 months; AG200-15: 1 year ]
    Pregnancy outcomes was determine by measuring Pearl index. Pearl Index is the number of on-therapy pregnancies times 1300 divided by the number of 28-day on-therapy cycles and is an estimate of the number of pregnancies per 100 woman-years of product use.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Cycle Control [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Measuring the breakthrough bleeding (BTB) and/or breakthrough spotting (BTS). Measured as a percent of total number of cycles in each Arm/Group with BTB and/or BTS.

  2. Pharmacokinetics of Levonorgestrel (LNG) and Ethinyl Estradiol (EE) [ Time Frame: Lessina: 6 months; AG200-15: 1 year; AG200-15: 6 months ]
    Measurement of plasma concentrations of LNG and EE for cycles 2, 6 and 13.

  3. Self-reported Irritation at Application Site [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

    Evaluation of irritation at application site was determined using the following scores:

    0: None

    1. Mild
    2. Moderate
    3. Severe

  4. Patch Adhesion by Investigator Evaluation at Each Visit [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

    Evaluation of patch adhesion was determined using the following scores:

    0: >= 90% adhered (no lift)

    1. >= 75% adhered but < 90% (some edges showing lift)
    2. >= 50% adhered but < 75% (half of system lifts off)
    3. < 50% (> half of system lifts off, but undetached)
    4. patch completely detached

  5. Self-reported Itching at Patch Application Site [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

    Evaluation of itching at patch application site was determined using the following scores:

    0: None

    1. Mild
    2. Moderate
    3. Severe
