The reduction of health-related risks is an important hallmark in the field of women’s health care. This is of primary interest for contraceptive drugs, which are usually prescribed to healthy women with the sole purpose of avoiding unintended pregnancy. Therefore, the ideal contraceptive would be one that eliminates, or greatly reduces, the risk of harm and adverse events while maintaining a similar efficacy, with many additional possible health benefits for the user. With the latest evolution of contraception technology, many modern hormonal contraceptives—both short and long-acting—meet these prerequisites. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the latest discoveries in this broad topic, and to offer clinicians additional safety data for the use of these drugs of daily use.
