  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Risk of Oral Contraceptive (OC) Failure Due to Less Contraceptive-mediated Ovarian Suppression.   [ Time Frame: Up to 8 biweekly visits from start of OCP therapy ]

2.  Secondary:   Possible Changes in Lipid or Carbohydrate Metabolism in Obese Versus Normal Weight Oral Contraceptive (OC) Users.   [ Time Frame: Screening and follow-up 1 ]
Results not yet posted.   Anticipated Posting Date:   No text entered.   Safety Issue:   No

3.  Secondary:   Pharmacokinetics of 15 Obese Weight and 15 Normal Weight Women on Combined Oral Contraceptives.   [ Time Frame: 24 hours during week 3 of follow-up cycle ]
Results not yet posted.   Anticipated Posting Date:   No text entered.   Safety Issue:   No
