Cycle Control Assessment of a Combined Oral Contraceptive Containing Estetrol and a Progestin P1 or P2
A Randomised Open-label Multi-centre Comparative Study to Evaluate Cycle Control of 2 Dosages of Estetrol Combined With Either P1 or P2, Compared to a Combined Oral Contraceptive Containing E2V and DNG

This is an open-label, multi-centre, comparative study in young, healthy, female volunteers of reproductive age.

Primary objective:

- To investigate the effect of 2 dosages of estetrol combined with P1 or P2, on vaginal bleeding patterns (cycle control), in comparison with a combined oral contraceptive containing estradiol valerate and dienogest

Secondary objectives:

  • To investigate ovulation inhibition
  • To investigate the effect on SHBG
  • To assess pregnancy rate
  • To evaluate subject satisfaction, dysmenorrhoea, acne, and body weight
  • To investigate return of menstruation after treatment
  • To evaluate general safety and acceptability
