Note. Effect sizes and estimated HDIs in bold were outside of the predefined ROPE; the null hypothesis was thus rejected. For all other effect sizes, the estimated HDI overlapped with the predefined ROPE. HCs = hormonal contraceptives; ROPE = region of practical equivalence; HDI = highest density interval.
