choosing an oral contraceptive (OC)
Women and prescribers will ask more questions about choosing an oral contraceptive (OC), now that so many are on the market.
For most women, suggest starting with 20 mcg ethinyl estradiol...plus an older progestin (levonorgestrel, norethindrone, etc). These have a good balance of safety and efficacy.
Tweak your recommendation taking into consideration a woman's prior experience with OCs...and her individual concerns.
