ESTROGEN LEVEL IN CONTRACEPTIVE PILL

Hi Doc,

I just wanted to find out if you know what the estrogen to progestrogen percentage is in Diane 35 (generic - Minerva)? Is there more estrogen in it? I have heard that the more estrogen there is in the pill, the more prone you are to putting on weight.

Thanks

It is 35 ug, which is higher than some of the other pills.

I was on Minerva for many years and never gained any weight at all.
