This is a compact scientific monograph on the extragenital effects of a combined formulation of ethinylestradiol at an acceptable dose of 30 ¦g and the new progestogen, dienogest. The book contains five main chapters on cardiovascular risks, ideal doses, clinical experiences, and hormonal control of androgenic disorders in women. The studies reported in this volume are of special interest to practitioners and researchers because in clinical trials this new formulation has provided reliable contraceptive action with good cycle control and a high level of acceptability. These studies lend support to expectations derived from the basic pharmacological experimentations, mostly animal-based, showing that the new progestogen does not interfere with the metabolism of ethinylestradiol in the liver, is an effective inhibitor of ovulation when used in combination with ethinylestradiol, has negligible estrogenic and no androgenic or mineralocorticoid effects and minimal metabolic action, a nd has distinct anti-androgenic properties. The book contains bibliographic references and a thorough index.
