  • Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed): Contraceptives, Oral, Combined [BOOK]
    Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed). National Library of Medicine (US): Bethesda (MD)BOOK
  • The weight of current evidence seems to indicate that combination oral contraceptives probably do not affect the composition of milk substantially in healthy, well-nourished mothers and do not adversely affect long-term infant growth and development. Combined oral contraceptives might transiently affect growth negatively during the first month after introduction. The magnitude of the effect on la…
  • Risk of sexual dysfunction with progestin-based contraceptives in women of child-bearing age. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Clin Pharmacol. 2021 Jan; 77(1):133-140.Guo MY, Sodhi M, … Etminan M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study found an increase in the use of levonorgestrel (COC and IUD), drospirenone, and medroxyprogesterone in subjects with SD. The risk of contraceptives did not differ when compared with oral levonorgestrel. The small association size and lack of difference between drug formulations suggest a minimal impact of progestin-based contraceptives on sexual dysfunction.
  • Women's experiences with tailored use of a combined oral contraceptive: a qualitative study. [Journal Article]
    Hum Reprod. 2013 Jun; 28(6):1620-5.Graham CA, Panicker S, … Stephenson J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Some women reported very positive experiences with tailored use of COCPs, others did not like the unpredictability about when they would bleed and some women reported increased anxiety about possible pregnancy.The sample comprised mainly young, nulliparous women. The majority of women were using COCPs at the start of the study.Clinicians discussing extended-use regimes with patients should mention that women may need time to adjust to an extended-use regime. Future research should attempt to identify predictors of response to extended use of COCPs.
