I am researching hormonal birth control and finding different results depending on how the order of the drug is listed. Also, if a space is used between
Ethinyl Estradiol or not.
Ethinyl Estradiol+Norelgestromin = 83,341 records EthinylEstradiol+Norelgestromin =15,106 records EE+Norelgestromin = 14,260 records Ethinyl Estradiol+Etonogestrel = 90,482 records EthinylEstradiol+Etonogestrel = 15,972 records EE+etonogestrel = 15,117 records EE+eton = 217 records
Other results that were interesting: NuvaRing is the only product that I know of (although I might be wrong) that uses Ethinyl Estradio AND Etonogestrel and it was interesting to see the various results
Etonogestrel+Ethinyl+Estradiol+nuvaring = 90,495 records Nuvaring = 7,741 records Nuva = 15 records
It looks like some records are recorded differently, such as Ethinyl Estradiol, or EthinylEstradiol or EE so they all counted separately, so the total count is not correct. Other issues as to how the drug name is entered appear to be affecting the data as well.
