Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with UV detection is studied for the determination of both progestogenic and oestrogenic components of oral contraceptive formulations. The applicability of the assay is demonstrated for a number of different progestogen-oestrogen combinations in both conventional tablet and novel "paper" formulations. The results show that the method developed is a versatile technique for the routine assay of these pharmaceutical formulations.
