What does the different color pills in ortho tri-cyclen 28 days mean?
like the white, light blue, dark blue and green they dont say so i just was wondering if any body knows what the differnt colors are Asked by Patrice Fayson 1 month ago.

Each pill contains different amounts of the hormone used in ortho tri-cyclen except the green pills are "spacer" or "reminder" pills. Each white tablet contains 0.180 mg norgestimate, light blue has 0.215 mg norgestimate and dark blue has 0.250 mg norgestimate. The green tablet contains only inert ingredients. This is suppose to mimic your natural cycle. I prefer pills that have only one amount of hormone, I used to take Apri because ortho tri-cyclen made me moody. Answered by Becky Grissett 1 month ago.

The white and light blue pills have Norgestimate (pregesterone) - regulates ovulation and menstration. They thicken up the uterus lining and keep you from getting preggers. The dark blue pills have Estradiol - hormone estrogen (the stuff that makes your skin nice). Lo has 25 mgs and the Tri-cyclen has 35 mg. Answered by Queenie Backes 1 month ago.

They each have a different amount of hormones except fo the green ones which have none and are "inactive" as they put it. Answered by Delinda Velmontes 1 month ago.

ugh...well since you asked i will tell. im on ortho-tri cyclen lo right now and i just called my doctor an hour ago to get it changed. i've gained weight but only 2-3 pounds and that is only from bloating. it's also kind of like i am pms-ing for 3 weeks and then the week im on my period i am totally happy. the week following i am relieved of the bloating..but it just comes back. but just remember everybody is different. okay so funny story...as i was writing that my doctors office called and they told me they were switching my birth control...to alesse. lol...so umm....what can you tell me about that??

ortho tri cyclene has more effective estrogen (hormones) than ortho cyclene....it wont truly make a large difference in the way it clears ur pores and skin. you opt to communicate over with ur well being care provider about which one is ideal for you because of the hormone factor differences.

MORE ANSWERS PLEASE Asked by Lakisha Brede 1 month ago.

I am currently on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo.. I switched onto it from being on Yasmin which was too strong for me... i am currently on pill 12 out of 28. on pill 6 i had alcohol that night and then my boyfriend and i had sex.. the next day i didn't take my pill until afternoon ... which the time i take the pill varies everyday.. then on tuesday pill 10 my boyfriend and i had sex around 1:00 p.m. and i didn't take my pill until about 2:00 .. and then on wednesday i didnt take pill 11 until around 5 or 6 .. i also took many cold/flu pills on wednesday.. and now on thrusday i didnt take it until around 2 or after.. somedays i take it earlier some days i take it way way later... My ovulation day began on the 4th of July ... (if that helps any) .. I heard that Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo doesn't work well .. so i'm just wonder how much of a risk am i taking? Also, tomorrow i am going to the doctor due to a sore throat.. if she gives me medicine for my throat will it throw off my birth control even more? Answered by Robyn Scrivner 1 month ago.

I've also heard that the Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo isn't as effective as other pills (I was on Yasmin as well and loved it, but everyones different) Um...taking anti-biotics makes you more susceptible to pregnancy because of the effect it has on the b.c. but regular cold medicine is fine. As you probably know having sex protected or unprotected there's is always a chance of pregnancy. But if I had to bet 100 dollars on weather you were pregnant or not I'd say you're probably not. Just keep taking your pills and wait to see if you get period next month. Answered by Brittni Ricci 1 month ago.

First, I am on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo myself and it works just fine. I've been on it for 2 1/2 years and not a problem. First, like any birth control though, when you switch types, you need to wear a condom for the first pill pack, just in case. Second, you need to take it at the SAME TIME everyday, or it is not as effective. The pill is 99% effective if you take it at the same time everyday, and it drops to 92% if you're even only 1-2 hours late. Third, whenever you have to take other medicines for colds and what not, always use a back up method (a condom) because the medicine actually makes the birth control less effective just your body is already weakened from the infection. Just keep these in mind, and you shouldn't have to worry about anything. I'm living proof of that. Answered by Elliott Simms 1 month ago.

As the above woman stated, anytime you are starting a new pill you need to use backup protection for at least 2 weeks if not longer. I believe Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo is just as effective as any other birth control pill if properly taken. Also you really need to establish and maintain a certain time of day to take it because that also puts you at higher risk of pregnancy. I know it is hard to establish a routine but if you don't want a child yet, then I would suggest doing so. Antibiotics and other medications can also effect the effectiveness of your birth control. If she puts you on any other medications make sure to ask you dr. if it will interfere with your pill and its effectiveness. I hope that helped. There are also other forms of birth control such as the nuva ring. With that you don't have to worry about taking it every day. The down side to that is if you are having side effects from the regular pill, Nuva Ring might not be a good choice for you. I suffered terrible migraines, spotting, I just had a terrible time with it. If you have a hard time with hormonal birth control, you could also try a birth control called an IUD which works with your cervical mucous to block pregnancy and you don't have to worry about taking a pill at a specific time every day. Good luck sweetie, don't you wish there was birth control for me. Life would be so much easier. Answered by Bobbye Mcneish 1 month ago.

Orhto Tri Cyclen Lo is a LOW DOSE birth control. I was on it for years and never had any problems. Then I got a little sloppy and stopped taking at the same time every day. About a month later I was pregnant. Its important to take it at the same time every day and to check with your doc about which medicines could interfere with its effectiveness and use a back up method when necessary. I would say your taking a big risk. Especially with a low dose pill. Answered by Dan Sheffield 1 month ago.

Hello, I was on Tri-Cyclen Lo before and I had no problem taking it at the different time of the day. Cough or cold medicine usually doesn't reduce the effect of the pills (I asked my doctor before) unless you're on some strong prescription drugs; such as, strong pain killer medicine, or Penicillin, or even anti-biotic drug. Then you have to be very strict about your hours of taking birth control pill each day. Also, when you're not taking pill at the same time everyday like the way you described, try to have your boyfriend wearing a condom when having sex. I did that with my boyfriend when we weren’t married, yet, and he didn’t mind at all. So, hopefully your boyfriend would corporate with you. What I was told was that as long as you take the pill everyday within the period of 24 hours, you should be fine, and if you forget to take the pill today, you should take double the next day for the previous day & the current day. I’ve done that so many times, and it worked out quite well. Tri-Cyclen Lo is stronger than the one I’m on now, which is Micronor because Tri-Cyclen Lo gave me migraine headache. With Micronor, I have to take the pill within 15 minutes of my usual time on each day. I actually thought Tri-Cyclen Lo was more forgiven than Micronor. Hope this is helpful. Answered by Noemi Marchetti 1 month ago.

Antibiotics have been none to counter react to the birthcontrol causing some women "2 of my cousins" to become pregnant.. If you are unable to take the pill the same time everyday look into the NuvaRing.. I used it and it was great.. You put it in and it stays for 3 weeks.. You take it out for a week and that is when your period will come.. Even if you are bleeding or not you put a new ring in the at the end of the week.. It is easy and doesnt require a lot a thought.. You are unable to feel it as well... Talk to your doctor about it and see if this form of birthcontrol is for you.. It sounds to me like it would be.. Unless you are secretly wanting to get pregnant.. Be more carefull and think smarter in the future.. You really dont want to concieve a baby while taking birthcontrol.. It could cause problem for the baby.... Answered by Barney Fortna 1 month ago.

the only way taking the pill is going to work is by taking it AT THE SAME TIME EVERY DAY- it even says it ont he directions!. im on ortho tri cyclin lo and i really like it but if you are over weight or do not take it correctly, it will not work properly. if you can't take it at the same time every day- try a diff form of bc.

Answered by Kelsi Dendy 1 month ago.

The first birth control pill I ever tried was Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo - I had the same exact symptoms as you! The tiniest things would set off my waterworks, I had my first and only anxiety attack, super super mood swingy, it even made me nauseous at the same time everyday. I'd always had a 28 day cycle/5-7 day period, Ortho made my period much less predictable. I was only on it for 4 months, most people say to wait 3 and your body will adjust, but I'm not willing to suffer through those symptoms for 1/4 of a year for each hormonal method. I tried Yaz next, while I wasn't as moody as with Ortho, I was nearly constantly bummed. Not quite depressed, but definitely not myself... it also KILLED my sex drive completely. For the past 6 months my significant other and I have been using condoms and we haven't had any problems yet. I intend to try the copper IUD in the next few months. Good luck! *In response to the comment above mine - Ortho Lo is triphasic, so many women have the same mood swing issues. Answered by Yan Landey 1 month ago.

I had the exact same problem with that pill. It made me into an over-emotional zombie and I could barely function. HATED IT!! I never tried the Lo version because I don't think it was around back when I tried OTC. But my doctor switched me onto a monophasic pill (Lo-Ovral) instead of a triphasic pill. Triphasic pills have three different levels of hormones throughout the month and can be too intense for some women. Monophasics have only one steady level of hormones. My bet is that OTC Lo is a monophasic, so you will probably be OK on that one. To be certain, call a pharmacist and ask them if Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo is a monophasic pill.

Dear Cassie, Well first love you should have waited a bit longer to have intercourse after your miscarriage by the way so sorry that happen and wish you nothing but the best and good luck.In most cases, it’s safe to resume sex after a miscarriage once the miscarriage bleeding has stopped. Generally this takes two weeks, however, all women vary. You want to wait until after the bleeding stops to give your cervix time to close up. Your body goes through a physical process from the miscarriage as your cervix dilates. Sex during this period of time increases your chances of infection in the uterus. The stopped bleeding is a signal that sex is safe to resume. Some women begin spotting at the end of this cycle, however, she should still wait to have sex until all bleeding and spotting has stopped.

Some women begin spotting at the end of this cycle, however, she should still wait to have sex until all bleeding and spotting has stopped.you should wait until after your first menstrual cycle, after the miscarriage. In most cases and during a normal recovery, your first period won’t arrive until after 4 weeks or so. It takes about 3 weeks for your hormone levels to recover from the miscarriage. Some women believe that the brownish or yellowish discharge that is exiting their vagina is a sign of fertility. The opposite is true. Regardless if you’ve waited the suggested time before resuming sex, women should not just jump back into bed in a wild fashion. Try having sex slower and softer at first, as emotions are high, more than likely for both partners. Easing back into sex with your partner after a miscarriage can heal you emotionally, and help you to enjoy sex . that all said well you are on the best birth control pills ever Ortho Tri Cyclen LO 28, as you know the 7 white pills are nothing but placebo sugar pills so they will give you time for your period. Now you said you took them for 12 days in total I hope you are talking about the birth control one not only the white ones? please note that it's very important. It's ok if you took it at 11 P.M. dear but what worries me more is everything is ok with you physically and mentally I hope so, and pray for you. Now if everything is ok and you have been taken your pills as it suppose to be without any infections and all your health wise is ok you are fine taken one at 7 and another at 11 p. m. will not effect that point what I'm worried about is infection and your health and emotional issues if all is ok then I pray you will be and if all you been doing it taken the pills daily then I see no problems please explain more about your miscarriage issue and if all is fine blood and hormonal issues??? good ;luck best wishes hope and pray for you for nothing but good health and healing and all will be fine, if you need more help please ask....PS: IF YOU TOOK THEM AS YOU SAID DEAR FOR A TOTAL OF TWELVE DAYS AND YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BIRTH CONTROL ONE NOT THE WHITE PILLS YOU ARE FINE THE ORTHO TRI CYCLEN ARE PERFECT YOU ARE SAFE FROM THAT SIDE DEAR..

I took Ortho Tri-cyclen for 2 years, and at first I didn't have any breakthrough bleeding, but after about a year I started having a TON of it, around 3-5 days a week. I'd give the pill at least 3 months, b/c it takes time for your body to adjust to the hormones. If it's not better by the end of your 3rd pack, I'd consult your doctor. Best of luck to you.

My fiance was prescribed Ortho Tri-Cyclen for her amenorrhea ("an abnormal absence of menstruation."). The doctor didn't tell us how to time it though; We don't know how to time the pill (28 day) to START her cycle. The booklet mentions only "day 1" and "Sunday starter". These indicate timing only with menstruation- the absence of which is the very reason she was prescribed this. Hoping for suggestions. Thank you! Answered by Toni Monticello 1 month ago.

For most women using Ortho Tri-Cyclen, the period will happen during the last week of pills. If there is a certain week of the month that it is better to be on the period, then time out the start of the pills so that the last week of pills will fall during that week. Since she already doesn't have a period, it really doesn't matter when she starts the pill since she doesn't have a period to start it with. It would probably be easiest to just start on a Sunday and keep taking the each day as directed. Since she has no period now, it might take more than one month for the hormones to cause a period. If a period doesn't happen by the end of the second pack of pills, contact the doctor for more advice. Answered by Katharina Julsrud 1 month ago.

I told him I was on BCPs, but he didn't mention anything about side effects. He probably wouldn't know anyway. I couldn't ask a gyno cause I am currently uninsured and don't have money for a visit. Answered by Carmela Dipaola 1 month ago.

mixing birth control with other medications or vitamins can definitely cause negative side effects. i would talk to your doctor about this just to make sure youre not taking too much of too many medications. but once i saw ortho tri cyclen i HAD to reply to give you the warning. ortho tri cyclen is known to give women terrible emotional side effects..im talking severe sadness, severe anger and severe anxiety. before i took ortho i had a normal happy and healthy life with an awesome boyfriend. a few months in i started experiencing reoccuring crying fits (for no reason) then it turned into an everyday thing. i began to become furious at everything and everyone. i was so nervous and anxious about everything i thought i was going crazy. everyday became a nightmare that grew scarier and scarier each day. i thought of suicide..i actually thought that i was gona die...i dont know why but i seriously thought something was gona kill me. THIS is when i realized that something wasnt right...i stopped taking the medication and have slowly recooperated everything that got damaged along the way. including my relationship with my boyfriend, family and work. my point here is--if you start to notice any negative changes in your behavoir...address is immediately because it only gets worse. and ive heard much worse stories from friends that have used it. im just lookin out for people who arent aware of these side effects. good luck :-) Answered by Vaughn Contento 1 month ago.

Changes in vaginal bleeding during or between periods is a side effect of Ortho Tri-Cyclen. On the other hand Ginko Biloba may reduce the ability of blood to clot. Ask your doctor or pharmacist. Answered by Benito Villalovos 1 month ago.

Yes! Didn't your doctor tell you all this! It can make you have so many different side effects. If you are really worried and don't have the information you need-go to the pharmacist and they will give you everything you will need or want to learn! Answered by Dorinda Wease 1 month ago.


What is the generic birth control pill equivalent to ortho tri cyclen l?
My insurance barely covers any of the cost of this prescription and its $50 a month (for 28 pills) it's a bit ridiculous, I'm only 20. But I'm really happy with ortho tri-cyclen lo. Please help, thanks! Asked by Alycia Angelou 1 month ago.

There is no generic for ortho tri-cyclen lo, but there is a generic for regular ortho tri-cyclen. Call your prescriber, and ask for a prescription for that medication. Cash price for generic Ortho tri-cyclen range from $9-$28. Answered by Flora Guarisco 1 month ago.

I don't think there is a generic for the lo yet. I believe it is too new. You can call and ask the pharmacist if there is a generic. I know a lot of pharmacies have their "low cost med" now. Like I know you can get generic Tricyclen at walmart for 9 dollars. It is called Tri Sprintec. Answered by Carli Fettes 1 month ago.

Tri-Sprintec is generic for Ortho Tri Cyclen. Yeah, go with generic. I haven't had problems (I'm on generic for Seasonale.) and it costs way less. Answered by Jeanelle Sam 1 month ago.

I take the generic and have not gotten pregnant. The generic drugs undergo a lot of testing so they are as reliable as they say they are. Answered by Fred Humbles 1 month ago.

Do I take all of the pills including all the green ones and then start a new one? I am extremely confused. I called and aske my a nurse at my doctor's office, and all she said was to never stop taking a pill , that I need to take one everyday. But when am I supose to start my period? When I get the last blue one? Please advise me as to how you are suposed to take them. Answered by Duane Cena 1 month ago.

If you are on the 28-day pack, then take all of the pills, 1 per day, and then start a new pack. Your period should happen when you are on the different colored pills, which I assume are the green ones. The nurse is correct, you should never stop taking a pill. Your period should start during the week that you start taking the green pills. It may not happen on the exact day that you stop taking the blue pills; it may be a day or two earlier or later. Just take one pill every day, starting with the blue pills. When you run out of pills, start a new pack. Answered by Berry Brakebill 1 month ago.

The prescription comes with an information leaflet. You need to read that entire thing, because there is a lot of important stuff in there. In answer to your question, you take the entire pack of 28 pills. When you get to the green ones (the brand-name Ortho pills should start with white and end with green), that is the week your period will come. As soon as you are done with the 7 green pills, you start a new pack (even if you are still on your period.) So, day 28 is your last green pill, then the next day you take the first white pill from the new pack. Your first month taking it, you can't be too sure when your period will come. Once you have been taking it a few months, it will probably come a few days after you start the green pills. Answered by Dana Crayton 1 month ago.

Well hard part is over you already started your pills. Since it is your first month your period may come at a weird week depending on your cycle, but next month and after that it should be normal. The nurse is right, dont stop taking the pill. Take all the active pills (usually various colors of blue) and the last 7 pills are "reminder" placebo pills. When you are taking the reminder pills that is the week at which you should get your period. Hope this helps. -Good Luck. Answered by Devorah Jurkiewicz 1 month ago.

You start the pill the Sunday after the start of your period. Since you have started already, you will take the green pills before you move on to your next pack of pills. The start of you period may very likely vary as you just added more hormones to your body. It could take months for your period to regulate, or it could happen right away. Also, make sure you are taking them the same time each day, this helps you remember, plus it keeps your levels stable. Print off a calender and mark your period start and end days each cycle, note when you spot. This will all help you know if your periods are coming regularly or if the pill is messing with your cycle too much. (Like I said it could take months to regulate) I went through three types of pills within 18 months before I found the one tht really worked with my body. Answered by Sindy Conditt 1 month ago.

I used ortho tri cyclen lo for a pair of years. i did not have any damaging section outcomes different than fatigue.
