Hormonal contraception with long-acting hormonal injections represrnt an established alternative. This study was aimed at knowing the disturbances that mently-birth control injection combined with mesigyna scherring AG provoked over lipid metabolism and menstrual pattern, to investigate it, 75 non-pregnant women who wished to control their fertility were included in the study. Total cholesterol, C-HDL, C-LDL, triglycerides and Ipa were determined showing that C-HDL had a slightly increase-trend from the second year of the use of AICs Mesigyna, the Lpa increased in the 16% of the total of patients. Menstrual pattern had regularity in its cycle-81.3 % of the total of women at the end of the study- concluding that the use of AICs Mesigyna produces disturbances on menstrual cycle invariably, demonstrating its antiatherogenic role due to its metabolic effects over lipid profile.
