Article was expanded 5x from July 22 to 26 (876 B -> 7090 B). No copyvio detected with Earwig. The hook and article are neutral, interesting and fully cited to WP:MEDRS compliant sources - spot check of sources shows that they support the text and are not closely paraphrased. Picture is free use and used in article, clear at low resolution. QPQ done. There's just one thing I'd like to nitpick:

  • Neurological advice is recommended in women on the anti-epileptic drug lamotrigine who are considering CHC - Unless I'm missing something, the source doesn't say anything about "neurological advice" specifically - it just says that "It is advised that alternative contraception should be considered".[2] Additionally, I think there should be more emphasis on the FSRH statement that "The risks of using CHC [in patients on lamotrigine] could outweigh the benefits."<small[>https://www.fsrh.org/standards-and-guidance/documents/combined-hormonal-contraception/]

Also, it's not necessary but I think it would be very helpful to provide statistics on the effectiveness of CHC use. There is some info on this in the FSRH report. Overall a good and informative article on an important topic - looking forward to the DYK. :)

Thanks...will work on it...the scope for the article was enormous...but I agree, more would be good....Keep in mind each CHC has its own article too. Give me some time. You have done a good review @SpicyMilkBoy:. Whispyhistory (talk) 21:02, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. Yes, it is definitely an article with a wide scope and you've done great work with it. I wouldn't have suggested using statistics if you'd have to cite a dozen different sources for different CHCs, but I saw that the FSRH report provides overall statistics, so I thought it would be great to include those. :) SpicyMilkBoy (talk) 21:09, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
