Extended-cycle regimen OCPs are unique in offering fewer or no withdrawal bleeds over the course of one year. They may be of particular benefit, for women with medical co-morbidities who would benefit from fewer withdrawal bleeds, those desiring to avoid monthly menses due to increased hormonal withdrawal symptoms or women who simply don’t want a monthly period.

Communicating about contraceptive effectiveness in a way that is informative and meaningful for patients is also critical. GPs are well placed to advise patients about potential risks and benefits associated with the extended-cycle regimen OCPs.
