Answer

Combination oral contraceptives

OCPs containing estrogen and progestin used to treat acute hemorrhagic uterine bleeding.

Dienogest/estradiol valerate (Natazia)

Negative feedback decreases GnRH amounts resulting in reduced LH and FSH secretion from the pituitary gland and anovulation. Indicated for treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding not caused by any diagnosed conditions of the uterus in women who choose an oral contraceptive for contraception.
