Is ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) considered a good birth control pill?

Birth control safety: Birth control pills have different side effects, the best one for you is the one you like the best. All birth control pills are effective, but their reliability depends on taking them every day. Also, if there are other medical conditions present, the medications for those conditions can decrease the efficacy of the pill, ex anti seizure medications or antibiotics. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

Yes, likely: Yes, you are likely protected. The effects of antibiotics on birth control efficacy is very minimal. Sometimes women use a back up method like a condom, but it's very likely that you aren't pregnant or becoming pregnant. ...Read more

Taking ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo. Last month missed 3 pills, had withdrawal for 3weeks. This month I have light bleeding still on last week. Is this normal?

Yes: If you miss pills you can expect your period to be abnormal while you get back on track. Keep taking your pills and use a back-up method of contraception while they get back to normal. Many of my patients set an alarm in their phone to help them remember. Perhaps this would work for you. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant if I missed three days of birth control pills and take all four pills on fourth day on ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo?

Can  I get pregnant if I missed three days of birth control pills and take all four pills on fourth day  on ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo?

Always some risk: Beside absolute abstinence, no birth control method is 100%. Although the chance is small, you can get pregnant while on the pill regularly. Missing multiple doses increases this chance. Since you missed 4 doses, i would not recommend taking all 4 pills to catch-up. If close to your period, would wait and start a new pack. If just started new pack, would resume dose asap. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Is  mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control pill a good one?

If it works for you.: Pretty much all of the oral combo contraceptives have similar effecacy and risk profile, but one-pill does not fit all. If you don't have any side effect from it and it is affordable, then it is a good one for you. There are many different pills available and so if this does not fit, talk to your doc and likely u will be given a trial of something else. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Am I at risk for pregnancy? I started my ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo pack 1 day late and had sex after. Taking 2 pills caused vomiting 12 hours later.

Minimal risk: Vomiting 12 hours after the two pills were taken means that they were totally absorbed and working. This supposes that you have taken the rest of that pill pack as directed without missing any further pills. ...Read more
