Abstract

Oral contraceptives have often been administered as treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. 2 women, 26 and 30 years of age, showed symptoms of beginning rheumatoid arthritis which disappeared after the contraceptives were discontinued. In 1 patient the symptoms recurred when oral contraceptives were again used. It may be necessary to discontinue oral contraceptive use in women with rheumatoid arthritis.
