Evaluation of body composition during low-dose estrogen oral contraceptives treatment


, : Evaluation of body composition during low-dose estrogen oral contraceptives treatment. Acta Europaea Fertilitatis 26(2): 69-73

The effect of two low-dose oral contraceptives (OCs) on weight and body composition was evaluated in 80 family planning clinic outpatients 18-43 years of age. These women were randomly assigned to receive OCs containing either 20 mcg ethinyl estradiol and 150 mcg desogestrel or 30 mcg ethinyl estradiol and 75 mcg gestodene. 20 IUD users served as controls. Anthropometric measurements and body composition (estimated by Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) were assessed at baseline and after 6 and 12 months of OC use. In all three groups, body weight, body mass index, total body water, and body cellular mass remained unchanged during the 12-month study period. These findings confirm that the new low-dose OCs have no significant effects on body weight or composition.

Background The analysis of markers in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is useful in the diagnosis of sporadic Creutz-feldt-jakob disease (sCJD). However, the time at which the study of these markers is most sensitive remains controversal. Objective...
