Abstract: A randomized double-blind study of the metabolic effects of 2 low-dose combined oral contraceptives was carried out in Singaporean women. The subjects comprised 58 women randomly allocated to two treatment groups (29 each): norethisterone 1 mg/ethinyl estradiol 35 μg (NET/EE) or levonorgestrel 150 μg/ethinyl estradiol 30 μg (LNG/EE) and a control group of 23 women using intra-uterine devices (IUD). Blood samples were taken on admission and at 3 and 12 months after pills or insertion of IUDs.
