Oral Versus Patch Hormonal Contraceptive Effects on Metabolism, Clotting, Inflammatory Factors and Vascular Reactivity
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of oral versus patch administration of
hormonal contraception on hormone sensitive proteins such as lipoproteins, clotting factors
and inflammatory proteins as well as blood sugar and insulin levels, antioxidant status and
flow-mediated dilation of arm and forearm vessels. The hypothesis is that oral
administration of contraceptive hormones will result in higher plasma levels of estrogen
sensitive proteins originating from the liver while patch administration of contraceptive
hormones will result in greater systemic effects of estrogen on vascular reactivity and
