The FDA has approved Natazia (estradiol valerate and estradiol valerate/dienogest, from Bayer Healthcare) tablets for the prevention of pregnancy. Natazia is the first oral contraceptive that contains an estrogen called estradiol valerate and a progestin called dienogest. Estradiol valerate is a synthetic estrogen that is converted to estradiol in a woman’s body.
Natazia is expected to be available in the summer.
