What are some of your side effects while on lo ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) vs ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel)?

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

Should norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol be taken at the same time everyday?

Should norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol be taken at the same time everyday?

Hormone punctuality: If the question involves taking oral contraceptives, today's BCP's are extremely low in content of both hormones. Consequently, if not taken within the hour of the previous day, withdrawal bleeding can occur. Additionally, they should be taken in the evening, so that the lowest blood levels do not occur in the early hours of the AM. PMS symptoms can occur if late. ...Read more

How long does it for trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) to be effective?

How long does it for trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) to be effective?

Day1-5 ok right away: You are protected against pregnancy right away if you take it during the first 5 days after your period starts. So if your period starts on monday, you can start the pill up to friday for instant protection. If you start on day #6 or later, then it takes about a week before you're fully protected & so you should use a back up method (condom, female condom, diaphragm, or sponge) during the 1st week. ...Read more

Taking norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets. I missed pill by two hours am I still protected? Does it always have to be at the same time?

Taking norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets. I missed pill by two hours am I still protected? Does it always have to be at the same time?

Just take pill daily: It is best to remember taking your contraceptive pills every day at about the same time so that the level of the hormones in your blood remains rather constant and stable. " Missing a pill by two hours" is not likely to matter very much or to make you less "protected". Consider asking your Gyn for an IUD or a subdermal implants which are much more effective and are "forgettable" methods. ...Read more

Hi. I am on gianvi (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and I wasn't very great about taking them on time this month. Can I take a dosage of it as ec?

Hi. I am on gianvi (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and I wasn't very great about taking them on time this month. Can I take a dosage of it as ec?

Yes: You can take 4 pills all at once. Then 4 more pills all at once 12 hours later. This dose will cause nausea so take a sea-sickness pill (like dramamine) 1 hour before taking each dose. You may want to think about using a different form of pregnancy prevention that requires less effort to remember it each day. The iuds or Nexplanon may be better choices. ...Read more

Borderline: You're really kind of on the borderline of whether you should see your doc or not. It's very normal to experience irregular and variable cycles for up to several months after stopping a hormonal contraceptive. If it would give you peace of mind, then maybe you should just make an appointment and see your doc. They may or may not want to do a blood test or ultrasound. They may tell you this is normal. ...Read more
