These reports investigated the association between new continuous or extended combined oral contraceptive (COC) use and venous thromboembolism (VTE), with new cyclic COC use as the comparison exposure. These reports also contain results from six sensitivity analyses with varying exposure incidence criteria, stroke definitions, follow-up periods, or exposure groups. Data from May 22, 2007 to September 30, 2015 from 12 Data Partners contributing to the Sentinel Distributed Database were included in this report. This request was distributed to Data Partners on March 28, 2017.
