I was looking at pdr.net but it says you have to be a Dr. to sign up--I was wondering if there is an online place that lists them ( I want to show someone else what's in them--not for myself) I thought I remembered hearing they get the estrogen from pregnant horse urine but then maybe that was HRT

An ingredient list is not going to tell you how they derived the ingredients.

Go to the library and go to the reference librarian....If you go to a library book sale, you can sometimes get the old PDR on sale!

Pregnant Mare's Urine is used to make PreMarIn. (capitalization mine). Not for regular BCP. The hormones are synthetic - made in a lab.
