Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary efficacy variable will be the proportion of volunteers with ovulation in at least one of the treatment cycles 2 and 3, based on the binary variable ovulation (i.e. Hoogland score 6) with the levels yes and no [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of ovarian activity in treatment cycles 2 and 3 [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Course of gonadotropins (FSH, LH) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Endometrial growth [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics of estrogen and progestin in treatment cycle 3 [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
