Primary Outcome Measures:
  • pharmacokinetic interaction (AUCt,ss of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel [Area under the curve over the dosing interval t under steady state conditions]) [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • pharmacokinetic interaction (Cmax,ss of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel [maximum measured concentration over the uniform dosing interval under steady state conditions]) [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • C24,ss of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel (measured concentration of the analyte at the end of dosing interval under steady state conditions) [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with clinically relevant findings in vital signs [ Time Frame: up to 14 days postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants with clinically relevant changes in electrocardiogram results [ Time Frame: up to 14 days postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants with clinically relevant changes from baseline laboratory measurements [ Time Frame: up to 14 days postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: up to 14 days postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
