My pharmacy switched me from tri-sprintec to tri-previfem this month. Why would they do that? Should I be concerned?

My pharmacy switched me from tri-sprintec to tri-previfem this month. Why would they do that? Should I be concerned?

Because that is: The generic they made a deal with both pills are generic but you may or may not like the new pill as much since it may have different amounts of hormones, I always prescribe brand name pills for my pts, use generics for other meds, my #1 pill is loloestrin by law a brand name has to have 90% of the active drug and most have 98%, a generic only has to have 72% at the least which can cause problems! ...Read more

My doc switched me from triprevifem to trisprintec (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) when I requested a lower or more consistent dose of hormones. Is there even a difference?

My doc switched me from triprevifem to trisprintec (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) when I requested a lower or more consistent dose of hormones. Is there even a difference?

They are the same: No. Tri-previfem contains 0.18mg/35 mcg x 7 days, 0.215mg/35mcg x 7 days, 0.25mg/35mcg x 7 days, and inert tabs x 7 days. This is same as Tri-sprintec. Dosages indicate is norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol concentration. ...Read more

Hello. I am 18 years old and on August 7th I had sex. The condom broke, but I am on birth control (triprevifem) and I was five pills into my new pack. I take my pills at the exact same time each day. Nonetheless, I took plan b since I am very afraid of be

Hello. I am 18 years old and on August 7th I had sex. The condom broke, but I am on birth control (triprevifem) and I was five pills into my new pack. I take my pills at the exact same time each day. Nonetheless, I took plan b since I am very afraid of be

Unlikely: The possibility of your being pregnant is negligible under these circumstances. You were doubly protected with the pill and the plan B. Remember the hormones can disrupt your hormones, so don't be concerned if your cycle is a bit off. ...Read more

I'm 32, was on ortho lo but too $, now on triprevifem (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) but doc wants to change to gildess 1.5/30 & skip my periods. Sideeffects? Weight gain? So afraid

Afraid?: I am not sure why you are saying you are afraid? Changing from one pill to the other is not a big deal and if the new brand will save you money this is a good thing. ...Read more

I am on otho tri-cyclen and my doctor has switched me to tri-previfem and told me it is the same thing. Is it?

My cvs has a back order on my birthcontrol, tri-sprintec so they gave me tri-previfem for a month. Is this okay?

I'm on tri-previfem 28 day. I have taken 4 inactive pills (sun-wed) & got period yesterday. Can I start a new pack to lighten/slow my period?

I'm on tri-previfem 28 day. I have taken 4 inactive pills (sun-wed) & got period yesterday. Can I start a new pack to lighten/slow my period?

May not help: It's normal to start your period while you are on the inactive pills. I cannot guarantee that starting a new pack will lighten or slow your current bleeding cycle and thus I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as a habit as it just isn't a guarantee. If you wanted to avoid having your period in general you could skip the inactive pills every month altogether. You may have just light spotting. ...Read more

GNC ripped vitapak for women, can it interfere with my birth control pills? Tri-Previfem

GNC ripped vitapak for women, can it interfere with my birth control pills? Tri-Previfem

No: But you are a victim of a fraud. If you must take a multivitamin you will derive exactly the same benefit [NONE] from a generic multivitamin at 1/10 the cost. I know I look stupid, but my nutrition comes from normal food. In fact there are thousands of nutrients in food never found in any pill. Don't be a sucker. Eat your vegetables. ...Read more

Is Fenugreek safe with birth control Tri-Previfem? What about Pueraria Mirifica?

Is Fenugreek safe with birth control Tri-Previfem? What about Pueraria Mirifica?

In amounts found...: ...naturally in food, fenugreek is safe, but in amounts found in supplements, it may be unsafe whether you're on BCP's or not. I don't recommend it. Pueraria has phytoestrogens, plant chemical with estrogen-like effects. It might be helpful for women w/ estrogen deficiency. But for you, already on an estrogen-containing contraceptive, I don't recommend it. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Insurance switched me from tri-previfem to tri-estarylla. Started after my last placebo week. Third day, unprotected sex. Could I be pregnant?

Probably not: A normal healthy woman taking her birth control pills correctly has very little chance of becoming pregnant, regardless of when she has sex. If her next withdrawal period does not come when expected, she can do a home urine pregnancy test. ...Read more

On second pill in b/c pack, take tri-previfem and been prescribed to amoxicillin. Was only on the medicine for 1day when I had sex. Pulled out, pregnant?

On second pill in b/c pack, take tri-previfem and been prescribed to amoxicillin. Was only on the medicine for 1day when I had sex. Pulled out, pregnant?

Unlikely: A woman who is properly taking her birth control pills is fully protected on her second pack of pills. Taking amoxicillin does not change the real-life effectiveness of the pills in a noticeable way. ...Read more

And is tri-previfem a good birth control? I'm scared it won't be as effective as ortho tri-cyclen
