Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Contraceptive Efficacy of Relugolix Combination Therapy as Assessed by the At-Risk Pearl Index (PI) [ Time Frame: 13 consecutive 28-day treatment cycles ]
    The At-Risk PI is defined as the number of on treatment pregnancies per 100 women-years of treatment. The At-Risk PI will be calculated on the basis of cycles considered at-risk of pregnancy, that is, consecutive 28-day periods without use of any other contraceptive methods and with affirmed occurrence of vaginal intercourse. On-treatment pregnancies are pregnancies with an estimated conception date between the first day of study intervention intake up to and including 7 days after the last intake of study medication.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Contraceptive Efficacy of Relugolix Combination Therapy as Assessed by the Modified At-Risk PI [ Time Frame: 13 consecutive 28-day treatment cycles ]
    The Modified At-Risk PI is based on the number of on-treatment pregnancies occurring during cycles without any other contraceptive methods, regardless of occurrence of vaginal intercourse. On-treatment pregnancies are pregnancies with an estimated conception date between the first day of study intervention intake up to and including 7 days after the last intake of study medication.

  2. Contraceptive Efficacy of Relugolix Combination Therapy as Assessed by the Gross PI [ Time Frame: 13 consecutive 28-day treatment cycles ]
    The "typical use" contraceptive efficacy will be assessed using the Gross PI, based on the number of on-treatment pregnancies occurring during all cycles regardless of the use of other contraceptive methods, confirmed vaginal intercourse, or protocol compliance. On-treatment pregnancies are pregnancies with an estimated conception date between the first day of study intervention intake up to and including 7 days after the last intake of study medication.

  3. Contraceptive Efficacy of Relugolix Combination Therapy as Assessed by the Method Failure PI [ Time Frame: 13 consecutive 28-day treatment cycles ]
    The "perfect use" contraceptive efficacy will be assessed using the Method Failure PI, based on the number of on-treatment pregnancies occurring during cycles that are at risk and without major protocol deviations. On-treatment pregnancies are pregnancies with an estimated conception date between the first day of study intervention intake up to and including 7 days after the last intake of study medication.

  4. Contraceptive Efficacy of Relugolix Combination Therapy as Assessed by the Cumulative 1-Year Pregnancy Rates [ Time Frame: 13 consecutive 28-day treatment cycles ]
  5. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 54 Weeks ]
  6. Number of Participants Who Do Not Complete 13 Treatment Cycles [ Time Frame: 13 consecutive 28-day treatment cycles ]
  7. Percent Change in Bone Mineral Density from Baseline to 6 and 12 Months On-Treatment [ Time Frame: 12 Months On-Treatment or EOT ]
    The percent change in bone mineral density will be measured from baseline to 6- and 12-months on treatment at the lumbar spine (L1-L4), total hip, and femoral neck.

  8. Percent Change in Bone Mineral Density from Baseline an 12 Months On-Treatment (or EOT) to 6 and 12 Months Post-Treatment [ Time Frame: 12 Months Post-Treatment Follow-Up ]
    The percent change in bone mineral density will be measured from baseline and 12-months on-treatment (or End-of-Treatment) to 6- and 12-months post-treatment at the lumbar spine (L1-L4), total hip, and femoral neck.
