This study investigated the long-term acceptability of a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) in 165 women after 6 and 36 months of use. Changes in menstrual bleeding pattern were experienced by 161 (98%) women, with a cessation or transient absence of menstruation occurring in...
The primary aim of this prospective 2-year follow-up study was to investigate the effect of depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) on the maintenance of bone mass in women aged 30–45 years. The effects of estrogen or calcium substitution during the second year of follow-up was investigated in...
The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) binding inhibitor (FSHBI) has been identified as one of the factors present in follicular fluid exerting autocrine/paracrine effects on FSH actions in the ovary. Our group has isolated FSHBI from human ovarian follicular fluid and deduced its partial amino...
Norelgestromin (NGMN) and levonorgestrel (LNG) are the main active metabolites of norgestimate (NGM), but their relative contributions to the pharmacological effects of NGM are unclear. We have therefore determined the serum distribution of these NGM metabolites and assessed their steady-state...
