  1. Epidemiology of the noncontraceptive effects of oral contraceptives.

    Article - En anglais

    Epidemiologic studies have made major contributions to our understanding of oral contraceptive safety.

    The findings of major studies of the risk of cardiovascular disease and neoplasia associated with oral contraceptive use are reviewed, with discussion of the many factors to be considered in the interpretation of conflicting results.

    Mortality data that were based on earlier oral contraceptive formulations, dosage, and usage patterns may not be relevant to current practices.
