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.

When prescribed both for irreg menses, do u take the provera for 10 days 2 see if it helps then the ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo? Confused on how 2 take them?

Provera (medroxyprogesterone) then BCP. If you are going to take the Provera (medroxyprogesterone) - take it for ten days and expect to start a period in the next 2 or 3 days after you stop the provera (medroxyprogesterone). When you start your period, then start the ortho tri-cyclen-lo, you may still have some irregular spotting for a while - give the pills several months to regulate your cycle. It is not really necessary to use the Provera (medroxyprogesterone) - just start the bcp's. Read more...
Probably both. It's possible to do both if your doc wants to synchronize your endometrium. (medically remove most of your menstrual lining at the same time). Check with the office but one way to do this is to only take the Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10 days, stop them (you should have a withdrawal bleed), and start your ocps 7 days after the last provera (medroxyprogesterone). If your cycles still don't improve after 3 months, change pills. Read more...

How can I stop my period since it started about 2 days ago im currently on ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo?

Birth Control Pill. Ortho Tri-Cyclen is one of the low dose pills and there may not be enough hormone to suppress your ovulation or support the endometrial lining. Missing a pill becomes more critical and makes it more likely for you to get pregnant or have irregular bleeding. If this is the first time on the pill, it will take some time but should be okay after 2-3 months. Read more...

I've been on ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo for 3mo now and this month I still haven't gotten my period. Help?

Normal. With the low doses of estrogen there may not be as much lining build up to have any period at all. This is ok. If you want period would have to change to a higher dose estrogen pill. Read more...
