Abstract
Oral contraceptive user had less menstrual blood loss, which reduced the risk of iron deificiency anemia by 50%. The incidence of menorrhagia, irregular menses and intermenstrual bleeding is also singificantly reduced in the user of oral contraceptives. In most women with leiomyomas, low-dose oral contraceptive use provide the noncontraceptive benefit of a reduction of menstrual flow, with resultant improvement in hematocrit. So, we confirmed that anemic leiomyoma patients with oral contraceptive use showed autotransfusion effects given by preoperative administration orally during some period.
