Abstract
Hormonal contraceptives have become widely used as a form of birth control. Contraceptives induce a hormonal situation which simulate to some extent pregnancy. Women using hormonal contraceptives can be considered as a risk group for periodontal diseases, due to prolonged, sustained serum level of estrogen and progesterone. In previous studies the oral contraceptive users showed higher levels of gingival inflammation than non users. So the aim of this study is to investigate the periodontal health of Sudanese women taking hormonal contraceptives
