A new progesterone-only pill will be offered in the form of Slinda (initially only available in Germany) with the active ingredient drospirenone. This is suitable if a combined pill with oestrogens is not possible due to an increased risk of thrombosis. This is the case if you smoke, have a clotting disorder, are breastfeeding or are older.
Slinda is used in the 24/4 regime. Slinda may also be an advantage in acne because, unlike Cerazette with Desogestrel, it contains an anti-androgenic progestogen.
With Drovelis, another pill will come onto the market that contains an endogenous oestrogen. The pill again contains drospirenone as a progestogen, which offers good ovulation protection. Here, too, the 24/4 regimen is used. In the first few cycles of use, more intermittent bleeding was noted, but this reduced with continued use.
The hormonal IUD with 53 mg levonorgestrel (Mirena) is also newly approved for contraception for 6 years.
