Hypotheses - 1

  1. The negative effects of OC on physical, emotional, and sexual well-being lead to discontinuation.
  2. If the OC provides benefits the woman values, she will be willing to tolerate more negative direct effects, and vice versa.
  3. Negative effects on mental well-being will be more marked in the triphasic pill.
