Cardiovascular disease and use of oral and injectable progestogen-only contraceptives and combined injectable contraceptives: Results of an international, multicenter, case-control study Article.

The majority of mortality statistics studies offer little support for a relationship between oral contraceptive use and cardiovascular events. Major systematic problems in the epidemiologic studies include potential for bias in the detection of cardiovascular events and differences in the prognostic susceptibility of compared groups.

Evidence-Based Answer. Because of an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, the use of combined oral contraceptives (OCs) should be. Women with certain conditions such as current breast cancer, severe hypertension or vascular disease, heart disease, migraine headaches with aura, and certain liver diseases, as well as women aged ≥35 years who smoke ≥15 cigarettes per day, should not use (U.S.

Combined hormonal contraceptives (CHCs) include low-dose (containing ≤35 μg ethinyl estradiol) combined oral contraceptives (COCs), the combined hormonal patch, and the combined vaginal ring ().Limited information is available about the safety of the combined hormonal patch and combined vaginal ring among women with specific medical conditions.

Early contraceptive advice is essential in women with heart disease and should be considered as an integral part of standard treatment in these women. When considering a contraceptive method, the efficacy, inherent risks and benefits are evaluated in relation to the particularities of the cardiac by: Although the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) helps many women overcome the troublesome symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), these drugs have been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease in the general population.

Contraceptive hormones, most commonly prescribed as oral contraceptives (OCs), are a widely utilized method to prevent ovulation, implantation, and, therefore, pregnancy.

The risk of pregnancy for women with CHD ranges widely. Background: The risk of cardiovascular disease associated with progestogen-only pills has rarely been studied so far.
