Ethinyl estradiol, also sometimes written as ethinylestradiol is a derivative of 17β-estradiol, the major endogenous estrogen in humans. Transdermal ethinyl estradiol carries a greater risk of clot formation and venous thromboembolism than 17 beta estradiol, which some have theorized to be related to different amounts of hepatic metabolism after absorption. The same contraindications and precautions apply for EE as with other estrogen medications.

Etinyl estardiiol is released into the environment as a xenoestrogen from the urine and feces of people who take it as a medication.
