Ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) or ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo for hormonal acne?
Synthetic meds: 1st no such thing as free lunch ie there's always some potential risk or side effect. 2nd FDA only approves meds which they deem benefit greater than risk (tho obviously not w/o disagreement & controversy). 3rd no studies demonstrate benefit of any oral estrogen over another tho some studies suggest topical safe than oral. 4th Natural isn't safe than synthetic ie tobacco is natural but isn't safe! ...Read more
Unlikely: Lo-ovral is a low dose birth control pill that has been around for a long time. It is a progestin dominant pill and like all pills in that category can be associated with some fluid retention, increased appetite and hair changes and lowers the good cholesterol. For the most part, it has been a well tolerated birth control pill choice. ...Read more
Prevent egg release: Ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) and all birth control pills contain hormones that prevent ovulation (release of egg by your ovary).

What are some of your side effects while on lo ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) vs ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel)?
Can be the same: Lo-ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) has 35 mcg estrogen, while ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) has 50 mcg estrogen, both have the same type of estrogen and progesterone. Anyone can have side effects with any type of bc pill, but I do not have any patients on ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) and only a few on lo-ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) as I use much lower dose pills in almost all of my patients. Almost all of mine are using a 25 or 20 or 10 mcg estrogen pill. ...Read more
Not my 1st choice: I do not like that pill, and it has 30mcg of estrogen and it is 21 days.
