Doctor insights on:
Birth control pill: Trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) prevents pregnancy by: 1. Preventing ovulation 2. Changing cervical mucus so the sperm can't fertilize an egg as easily 3. Changing the lining of the uterus so a fertilized egg will be less likely to implant. Birth control pills like trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) can make periods regular & easier & lower the risk of ovarian cysts. It doesn't protect against stds. Use condoms & get tested @ sexualhealth.Com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a medication abortion one month ago, now on trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol). Should i continue to use condoms or is bc enough? 1 partner. Higher risk of pregnancy now?
Birth Control: Does not protect against std's at all, while condoms do. There are many common std's are there that you can get with only one unprotected exposure--you might have already been exposed during your pregnancy encounter. Best to be safe than sorry until you are ready to commit for good. Hpv can cause cervical cancer, herpes breakouts could happen monthly or rarely but make you contagious forever! ...Read more
I am currently taking taking tri previfem, (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) but was just out on a zpack for sinusitis. Will this drug reduce the effectiveness of the birth control?
Just started ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo birth control. % of people that actually get blood clots seems too common ? Scared. What is the actual % of people who get serious side affects from this drug ?
I : I am not aware of the actual percentages of each side effect of this birth control pill (bcp). If you check the package insert, this information should be there. On the other hand, i can tell you about my personal experience. I have been in practice well over 5 years. I prescribe bcp's all the time. I have never had one patient develop a blood clot from bcp. I believe part of the reason is that i screen my patients very well. I do not give the pill to anyone who has had a history of blood clots or a family history. Also i will not give the pill to a smoker over 35, and strongly advise against it in my younger patients. Bcp's are safe and very effective if given to the right patient. They protect against ovarian and uterine cancers. If your doctor felt you were a good candidate, then your odds are very low for developing any serious complications. Take care. ...Read more

Outside of norgestimate progestin,
which other progestins are as low
androgenic? Or is norgestimate the
lowest? I require a very low androgenic pill.
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
Not exactly: One of the 2 ingredients has a different dose for each of the first 3 weeks in tri-privifem, but the dose is the same in all 3 weeks for privifem. ...Read more
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
I was on trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) and I'm experiencing some pain off and on for the past 3 months since I stopped using it.
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
Is it normal to have hemoragic cyst when I'm on norgestimate and estradiol? Really wanna stop pill if it is not working on my body to prevent cysts
Can Occur: Oral Contraceptive pills (OCPs) may reduce the risk of new ovarian cysts, however they do not decrease the size of current cysts. I would continue OCPs or other hormonal contraceptive (ie, ring, DMPA) to help reduce the risk of recurrence. However, if you have a large persistent symptomatic cyst, you may need to have it aspirated or removed surgically. Ibuprofen or naproxen can reduce cyst pain. ...Read more
