What is Ethynodiol Diacetate And Ethinyl Estradiol

EthinylestradiolThe Generic name of this drug
Treatment SummaryEthinylestradiol is a synthetic form of the female hormone estrogen. It was created in 1938 by Hans Herloff Inhoffen and Walter Hohlweg at Schering. Ethinylestradiol is more easily absorbed into the body when taken orally, making it a more effective form of estrogen. It has since replaced mestranol in contraceptive pills, and was approved by the FDA in 1943.

Effectiveness

How Ethynodiol Diacetate And Ethinyl Estradiol Affects PatientsEthinylestradiol is a synthetic form of estrogen that stops the body from releasing hormones that cause ovulation and thickening of the uterus lining. It is taken once daily and is generally considered safe, even if taken in higher doses than recommended. It is important to be aware of the risks of blood clots associated with taking this medication.
How Ethynodiol Diacetate And Ethinyl Estradiol works in the bodyEthinylestradiol is a synthetic form of the female hormone estrogen. It reduces bone density, suppresses ovulation, thickens cervical mucus, and prevents changes in the endometrium that would allow a fertilized egg to implant. It also lowers luteinizing hormone, making the endometrium less hospitable to a fertilized egg, and increases a protein called sex hormone binding globulin.

Is ethynodiol diacetate a progestin?

"After ovulation, the egg travels through the fallopian tube to the uterus. The egg can be fertilized by a sperm cell during this time and pregnancy may occur.

Ethynodiol Diacetate works by thickening the mucus around the cervix. This mucus blocks sperm from getting through to the egg. Ethynodiol Diacetate also alters the lining of the uterus. This makes it harder for a fertilized egg to implant itself in the uterus and start a pregnancy.

Ethynodiol Diacetate is used as a female contraceptive. It is a progestin or a synthetic form of the naturally occurring female sex hormone, progesterone. In a woman's normal menstrual cycle, an egg matures and is released from the ovaries (ovulation). After ovulation, the egg travels through the fallopian tube to the uterus. The egg can be fertilized by a sperm cell during this time and pregnancy may occur.
