Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: April 21, 2015)
  • Number of intracyclic bleeding days (including spotting) in Cycles 2 to 7 [ Time Frame: 168 days ]
  • Number of withdrawal bleeding episodes in Cycles 1 to 6 [ Time Frame: 168 days ]
  • Bleeding pattern [ Time Frame: Approximately 7 months ]
    Bleeding pattern was determined by: - Number of bleeding/spotting days - Number of bleeding days (excluding spotting) - Number of spotting-only days - Number, mean length, maximum length, and range of length of bleeding/spotting episodes - Number, mean length, maximum length, and range of length of spotting-only episodes
  • Cycle control [ Time Frame: Approximately 7 months ]
    Withdrawal bleeding - Number of volunteers with/without withdrawal bleeding; - Length, maximum intensity, and onset of withdrawal bleeding episodes Intracyclic bleeding (including/excluding spotting) - Number of volunteers with/without intracyclic bleeding; - Number, maximum length, maximum intensity (including spotting only) of intracyclic bleeding episodes - Number of intracyclic bleeding days - Number of volunteers with at least one intracyclic bleeding (including/excluding spotting) episode in Cycles 2 - 6 and in Cycles 2 - 7
  • Subjective assessment of treatment [ Time Frame: Day 196 - Day 210 ]
    The treatment satisfaction assessment was done through a questionaire. The investigator handed it over to the subject and the subject was asked to answer all questions by herself.
  • Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: Approximately 7 months ]
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: April 4, 2008)
  • Assessment of bleeding patterns and cycle control [ Time Frame: During seven cycles of intake of the investigational drug ]
  • Comparison of safety of the different treatment regimens [ Time Frame: During seven cycles of intake of the investigational drug ]

Brief Title  ICMJE Cycle Control and Safety of E2-DRSP
Official Title  ICMJE A Multi-center, Double-blind, Randomized, Parallel-group Study to Evaluate Cycle Control and Safety of 6 Different Regimens of an Oral Contraceptive Containing Estradiol and Drospirenone in Healthy Female Volunteers Aged Between 18 and 35 Years Over 7 Cycles
Brief Summary The study will be performed as a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group trial in fertile women aged between 18 and 35 years inclusive. A total of 600 volunteers will be randomized into one of the six treatment groups. The study will be performed only in Germany. The investigational drug is an oral contraceptive. It contains the estrogen estradiol (E2) and the progestogen drospirenone (DRSP). As the contraceptive efficacy has not yet been proven for these new regimens, even a protection against unwanted pregnancies cannot be assured. The treatments will be applied daily for 7 cycles of 28 days each without pill-free interval, i.e., for 196 consecutive days. Treatment will be initiated after a screening period of approximately 1 to 2 weeks, the latter focused on confirmation of the baseline safety status. Tablet intake will start on the first day of the first menstrual/withdrawal bleeding after Visit 2, regardless of whether the volunteer is a first user (starter) or switching from another COC. In the following cycles, tablet intake is not to be triggered by any bleeding events. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate and compare the cycle control and bleeding patterns of six different treatment regimens with E2/DRSP during administration for 7 treatment cycles. Volunteers will be provided with a diary to document the intake of study medication, any bleeding events, and days without bleeding, pregnancy test results. Safety will be also assessed. During the whole study period, 4 visits are planned. At Screening and Final examination, a thorough physical examination and a gynecological examination (including breast palpation and cervical smear ) will be performed. Blood samples will be taken for safety laboratory parameters.Additional examinations can be performed any time, if this becomes necessary for medical reasons. At Visit 3 or in case of premature discontinuation of study the investigator will discuss options for follow-up contraception with the volunteer. The volunteer can start the intake of a post-treatment OC on the day after the last tablet intake of study medication, after a negative urine ß-HCG test (home pregnancy test) result.
