Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of (0.02 mg EE as betadex clathrate [β-CDC]) / 3 mg drospirenone (DRSP) for dysmenorrhea. In order to appropriately evaluate the efficacy of EE(β-CDC)/DRSP the study was set up as a placebo-controlled comparative study

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BAY86-5300
Patients suffering from dysmenorrhea, treated with Yaz
Drug: EE20/DRSP(YAZ,BAY86-5300)
0.02 mg EE (β-CDC)/3 mg DRSP for 24 days and placebo tablets for 4 days per 28-day intake cycle

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Patients suffering from dysmenorrhea,treated with placebo
Drug: Placebo
Matching placebo tablets for 28 days per 28-day intake cycle

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean change in visual analogue scale (VAS) score for pain due to dysmenorrhea from baseline to Visit 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 17 ]
    The patient marks the individual pain impression on a visual analogue scale in the range 0 (no pain) to 100mm (worst pain ever experienced)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with adverse events as measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]
  2. Number of days with dysmenorrhea [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]
    The occurrence of dysmenorrhea will be recorded in the patient diary

  3. Change in dysmenorrhea score [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 16 ]
    It is the sum of two four-stage sub-scales which assess the extent to which dysmenorrhea interferes with daily life & the extent to which pain medication is used.

  4. Changes from baseline to each menstrual period of total number of taken supportive analgesic medication [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 16 ]
    Standard Analgesic tablets are provided to participants

  5. Changes from baseline to each menstrual period of days without supportive analgesic medication. [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 16 ]
  6. Clinical Global Impression(CGI) [ Time Frame: At week 16 ]
    The CGI is the measure of global improvement index from the opinion of the investigator and subject to document changes in the health status during treatment

  7. Self administered SF-36 questionnaire [ Time Frame: At baseline and week 17 ]
    The 36-items Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) (version 2.0) is a set of generic, coherent,and easily administered quality-of-life measures.

  8. Changes from baseline to each menstrual period of severity of lumbago [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]
    The patient classifies the severity on a mild, moderate, severe scale

  9. Changes from baseline to each menstrual period of severity of headache [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]
    The patient classifies the severity on a mild, moderate, severe scale

  10. Changes from baseline to each menstrual period of severity of nausea/vomiting [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]
    The patient classifies the severity on a mild, moderate, severe scale

  • Good general health (except for findings related to dysmenorrhea) as proven by medical history
  • Patients aged 18 years or older at the time of obtaining informed consent; smokers must not be older than 35 years at the time point of informed consent
  • Normal or clinically insignificant cervical smear not requiring further follow up (a cervical smear has to be taken at screening visit or a normal result has to be documented within the previous six months). Human papilloma virus (HPV) testing in subjects with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) can be used as an adjunctive test. Subjects with ASCUS can be included if they are negative for high-risk HPV strains (HPV 16, HPV18).

  • Patients who wish to become pregnant during the course of the study
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) > 32 kg/m2
  • Hypersensitivity to any ingredient of the study drug
