Ethinylestradiol after intake is soaked up completely and quickly. After the use once maximum concentration is observed 1-2 hours later. Bioavailability of a component makes about 60%. It is metabolized completely through an aromatic hydroxylation. Metabolites are brought out of an organism with bile and urine.
