Summary
Brief summary
The aim of the present study is to investigate whether women taking a new combined oral
contraceptive pill (SH T00658ID, estradiol valerate/dienogest) experience fewer hormone
withdrawal-associated symptoms such as pelvic pain or headache during their monthly cycle
compared to a commonly used contraceptive pill (Microgynon).
