Given ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo & provera for regulating period. Start ortho sun for 24 days & provera thurs 1x daily for 10. Is it ok to take it w/ortho?

Given ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo & provera for regulating period. Start ortho sun for 24 days & provera thurs 1x daily for 10. Is it ok to take it w/ortho?

OK but ? necessary: You do not need the provera (medroxyprogesterone). The ortho tricyclen-lo is a good pill to regulate the cycle. It contains estrogen and progesterone. The additional Progesterone (provera (medroxyprogesterone)) is not likely to be of any value or benefit when take with the birth control pill. If the Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is taken with the last seven pills in your pack(the placebo pills), it likely will interfere with your cycle rather than correcting it. ...Read more

Is there an alternative to ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) that wont enhance depression?

Is there an alternative to ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) that wont enhance depression?

Perhaps: For most people on a low estrogen formulation of the oral contraceptive, it is the Progesterone component of the pill that is most associated with depression. There are many different progestoerones and a different one from the one in orthotricyclin may have less of a mood effect. Norgestimate (in your pill) is usually well tolerated but some feel drospirenone (in Yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and others) may be better. ...Read more

Is there a difference between Ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) and sprintec? My new doctor switch me from sprintec to ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate).

Is there a difference between Ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) and sprintec? My new doctor switch me from sprintec to ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate).

Yes: Oral contraceptive pills have 2 hormones - a progesterone and an estrogen component. Sprintec is a monophasic pill ie the progesterone and estrogen components are fixed and does not vary with the last 7 pills hormone free (inert). Ortho tricyclen, the progesterone component increases weekly up to week 3, and the last 7 pills inert. I find that there is more break through bleeding with tricyclen. ...Read more
