Evaluation of danazol as an oral contraceptive.

Journal Article (Clinical Trial;Journal Article)

The effect of Danazol as an oral contraceptive in doses of 50, 100, and 200 mg daily for 6 months was studied in 3 groups of 10 women. Both 50 and 100 mg Danazol daily were well tolerated, but one pregnancy occurred among the women receiving 50 mg daily, and 2 pregnancies occurred in women receiving 100 mg daily. There were no pregnancies in women taking 200 mg Danazol daily; however, the side effects were frequent and 5 of the 10 patients withdrew from the study prior to 6 months of therapy. Six patients in this study were followed intensively with blood hormone analysis, vaginal cytology, and pathologic evaluation, and these findings are detailed.
