The association of estradiol valerate/dienogest (E2V/DNG) is an innovative contraceptive choice with relevant consequences for quality of life of women at all ages. Klaira® (E2V/DNG) combines the use of natural estradiol in a dynamic dosing regimen with a progestin very similar to natural progesterone but with very potent antiproliferative action at the endometrial level. The high contraceptive efficacy of E2V/DNG is associated with a good menstrual cycle control which leads to a novel therapeutic indication in heavy menstrual bleeding. The mild hemostatic and metabolic impact is highly important for women over 35 years, especially when painful syndromes are present (dysmenorrhea and headache), with potential benefits of E2V/DNG, even though the current contraindications of hormonal contraception with ethynilestradiol are still present. In addition, good tolerability and the evidence of beneficial effects on sexual function make E2V/DNG a contraceptive hormonal method with a favourable profile in term of psychophysical well being of women.
