A clinical, radiological and biochemical (serum calcium, phosphorous and alkaline phosphatase) study was undertaken to evaluate comparatively the effect of different durations of oral contraceptive therapy on the periodontium.
Group I consisted of 18 subjects who were on oral contraceptive therapy for 6 months to 1.
1% level, thus showing a worsening of oral hygiene status with oral contraceptive therapy.
But these indices were not significantly different between Group II & III thereby suggesting that after a certain period of duration of oral contraceptive therapy, the effects are similar.
The values for calcium and phosphorous were within normal range but there was a tendency to decrease in groups with a longer duration of oral contraceptive therapy.
Oral contraceptive therapy also improves acne, makes menstruation more regular, and stops the progression of hirsutism.
