  • Overview

    The effort to reduce the estrogen concentration in combination oral contraceptives (COCs) and strike the right balance between efficacy and safety appears to be never-ending. However, a recently FDA-approved estetrol/drospirenone COC formulation offers some unique properties not seen in current COC formulations. Join us as Dr. Jeffrey Jensen and Dr. Lee Shulman discuss if this estetrol/drospirenone COC formulation will allow physicians to better address these efficacy and safety issues.
