Disadvantages Of Triphasil Pills
No: If ovulation has been documented by testing (serum progesterone) and you are taking triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) every day at the same time each day, no it is not normal. It might be time for a "pinch hitter" (another pill type) as triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) may not be "stepping up to the plate" for you. Ask your md for advice.
I accidentlly took two of my triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills on the same day. Problem?
Could taking two of my triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills on the same day cause an overdose?
I've picked up 5kg in 2months after using triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). How can I lose this excess weight? Should I change my pill or what can I do with my diet
Diet: Statistically current birth control pill formulations should not effect weight. Attempt dietary changes first. If this doesn't work then consider a lower dose pill.
No: If you are taking the pill every day at the same time each day, it is unlikely that you are ovulating as the pill suppresses ovulation.
Triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) does not have red pills. How am I supposed to take them?
7 days drug free: Triphasil-21 is a birth control package that comes with only 21 hormone containing pills. The package does not contain the red (placebo) tablets. Once you have finished the 21 consecutive days, you take 7 days off of the medication. Next, you begin a brand new 21 day package starting on the 8th day after your last pill from the previous package.

I am on triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) and I drink vital lecithin. Can this affect the pill?
Lecithin on the pill: Lecithin is estrogenic and will potentially increase side effects of the pill. It will not, however, affect the efficacy.
How do I know that I'm not pregnant whilst on the triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pill?
Pregnancy test....: Many women have scant or light periods on birth control pills. Some women have no periods at all! You may want to reassure yourself by taking a home pregnancy test - especially if you have missed any pills or taken them late. See your health care provider if you are concerned. Good luck.

I just started taking triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) today. After how many pills would I be able to have unprotected sex without falling pregnant?
Depends on start: If you started the pill within 5 days of the first day of your last period, you are protected right away. If you started at any other time, you are protected after being on the pill a week (7 days). Although this is true, I still like the idea of waiting a full month after being on the pill to be the safest. See here for more info: http://bit. Ly/ssoiyu.
What's the question: What is your question?Get a more detailed answer ›
I just switched birth control pills from triphasil to yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will I notice any difference?
Maybe: Response is variable.Get a more detailed answer ›
Taking Yaz/Vestura for 2 weeks for perimenopause. Mood is better but makes me nauseous. In my 30s I took Triphasil-would this work for perimenopause?
Dose change needed: nausea is a common side effect of using a birth control pill that has too much estrogen. To help with your symptoms, it would be better to switch to a method with lower estrogen content, a triphasic as you asked about would be appropriate as long as you are healthy and do not have any history of migraines with aura. do not smoke while you are using this method.
Ocp effectiveness.: To be absolutely safe, one month.Get a more detailed answer ›
3- 4 days:
To reach a steady level of hormones can take 3 - 4 days.
This is why starting with the first day of your cycle, with your very first pack of pills, is useful, enough time before ovulation to be working as a contraceptive.
