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

In brief: 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.
