ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a study about risk factors associated with the use of oral contraceptives (OCs) in women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This study was conducted on 183 women having 18 to 39 years of age with inactive or stable active SLE. It was found that OC did not differ from placebo for proportions of women having a severe lupus flare or a mild-to-moderate flare. Thus, it was concluded that combined oral contraceptives did not increase risk for severe or mild-to-moderate lupus flare.
