Would it be easier for me to lose weight if i stop using TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol)? (I use the pill to treat acne and cramps)

Would it be easier for me to lose weight if i stop using TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol)? (I use the pill to treat acne and cramps)

Minimal effect: The use of TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) at most may be leading to a pound or two of weight change, so stopping it is not going to make a huge difference. It still boils down to you needing to take in fewer calories in what you eat or burn more calories with exercise. If you think that the pill is going to make some huge difference in your weight, it will not. ...Read more

No: I'm sorry, but yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) does not contain the correct type of Progesterone hormone to equal the emergency contraceptive pill we have in the us. Go to the pharmacy and find a birth control pill that contains Levonorgestrel hormone. A combo pill is okay. Take enough tablets to equal 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel, and that will be equal to the Plan B medication we have here in the us. Good luck. ...Read more

Thru 12 weeks: Typically this should be prescribed under guidance of a reproductive medicine doctor. Here in the usa it's usually estrogen patches and Progesterone vaginal suppositories. Also a baby Aspirin of 81 mg may be taken without any worries until delivery occurs so as to protect against advanced pregnancy losses beyond 1st trimester.
