Abstract:   (5358 Views)
Due to the important role of the trace elements (i.e. zinc and copper) in the biochemical processes of body and the effects of exogenous and endogenous hormones in distribution, absorption and excretion of these elements, we decided to determine the rate of the zinc and copper content of serum in women taking (LD) OCPs. Our finding indicates that the rate of the zinc content decreased significantly (P<0.001), whereas the copper content of women serum during this period showed a significant increase (P<0.001). In regard to previous months, the process of increasing were lasting for six months. Therefore, we would like to suggest that the serum content of these two elements should be monitored during the period of medication with OCPs, to avoid the deleterious effect of flactuation rates of these elements in serum.
