Key Generic Products > Oral Contraceptives

Oral contraceptives are the most common method of reversible birth control, used by up to 82% of women in the United States at some time during their reproductive years. Oral contraceptives have a long history with widespread use attributed to many factors including efficacy in preventing pregnancy, safety and simplicity in initiation and discontinuation, medical benefits and relatively low incidence of side effects.

Barr manufactures and markets 22 generic oral contraceptive products as of the end of fiscal year 2005 (ended June 30, 2005) under trade names. Barr’s generic oral contraceptives compete with the branded versions of the products, and in most instances, with other generic products and/or authorized generic versions of the branded product.
