Im on contraception pills (triphasil) and ovulate, is this normal?

Im on contraception pills (triphasil) and ovulate, is this normal?

No: If ovulation has been documented by testing(serum progesterone) and you are taking triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) every day at the same time each day, no it is not normal. It might be time for a "pinch hitter"(another pill type) as triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) may not be "stepping up to the plate" for you. Ask your md for advice. ...Read more

Taking Yaz/Vestura for 2 weeks for perimenopause. Mood is better but makes me nauseous.In my 30s I took Triphasil-would this work for perimenopause?

Taking Yaz/Vestura for 2 weeks for perimenopause. Mood is better but makes me nauseous.In my 30s I took Triphasil-would this work for perimenopause?

Dose change needed: nausea is a common side effect of using a birth control pill that has too much estrogen. To help with your symptoms, it would be better to switch to a method with lower estrogen content, a triphasic as you asked about would be appropriate as long as you are healthy and do not have any history of migraines with aura. do not smoke while you are using this method. ...Read more

I accidentlly took two of my triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills on the same day. Problem?

No: The only problem with taking two pills in one day is the small chance of nausea. Keep taking the pill pack as you normally would, and you'll finish one day early before your scheduled 7 day menstrual period -- in this case, however, it'll be 8 days and then you'll start another pill pack. ...Read more

Triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) does not have red pills. How am I supposed to take them?

Triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) does not have red pills. How am I supposed to take them?

7 days drug free: Triphasil-21 is a birth control package that comes with only 21 hormone containing pills. The package does not contain the red (placebo) tablets. Once you have finished the 21 consecutive days, you take 7 days off of the medication. Next, you begin a brand new 21 day package starting on the 8th day after your last pill from the previous package. ...Read more

Is it okay to switch from Yaz generic Vestura to Triphasil generic Trivora mid cycle for perimenopause? I read conflicting answers but feel nauseous.

Is it okay to switch from Yaz generic Vestura to Triphasil generic Trivora mid cycle for perimenopause?  I read conflicting answers but feel nauseous.

Not a good idea: Generic yaz and generic triphasil have the same estrogen component, but different dose regimens of it and completely different progestin components in them. Based on the impact that birth control pills can have on the body's water balance and blood clotting system, it is not a good idea to switch from yaz to triphasil mid cycle. ...Read more

How do I change from triphasil to yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)? At which pil should I stop triphasil and start yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?Would i be unprotected if i change...

With month: Best way is to finish the triphasil and have your period and then begin the yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) when you would have started your new triphasil pack. Should be safe, but with any new medicine i would use a secondary form of bc until you see how your body reacts to the yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). ...Read more

Is it a good idea to change from Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) to triphasil bcz I want a proper period?

Sure : Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is designed to make your period lighter and shorter. If you want to have a heavier and longer cycle, for whatever reason, switching to a traditional birth control pill would certainly be an option. There is no health benefit though to having a longer and heavier period. ...Read more
