The first oralcontraceptive was submitted first for regulatory approval in 1957 as a treatment for menstrual disorders and infertility, not as a contraceptive (although the drug had been developed as an oralcontraceptive).
In judging the safety of the first oralcontraceptive, regulators were most concerned about it ability to prevent pregnancy because pregnancy and delivery were inherently medically risky.
