Skipping pills on tri-previfem?
I am on Tri-Previfem and I will be getting my period for an out of town wedding. How can I take the pills so I do not get my period this month? Will if cause higher chances of pregnancy and/or mess my system up in any way? Asked by Johnnie Gibby 4 months ago.

Tri-Previfem is a tri phasic oral contraceptive, meaning each week of the active weeks the tablets have differing amounts of hormones. It depends on where you are in your pack. If you are just starting this pack you would take two weeks of the white tablets, two weeks of the light blue tablets, two weeks of the blue tablets and one week of the green ones then start your next pack. If you are in the light blue week, you need to take another week of the light blue ones, two weeks of the blue ones and a week of the green ones then start your next pack. If you are in the blue week, take another week of blue ones, a week of green then start your new pack. Whatever you do, DO NOT take a week of blue then start with the white ones again. YOU WILL get a period. Answered by Sherita Cottom 4 months ago.


Sprintec vs Previfem?

I have been on Sprintec for about a year now. I love it. It clearly works for the main purpose that I was prescribed it. It also has cleared up my skin and things such as that. However when I went to pick up my pills they gave me Previfem. They say they are the exact same thing. I am still skeptical because sprintec was working so well...

Previfem contains mainly estrogen in it. It is moderately effective and causes side effects like nausea, cramps, etc... Answered by Birdie Gaarder 4 months ago.


Im starting tri previfem birth control...?
I start it tomorrow and one of the side effects are changes in sex drive.. what does this mean?? And I don't have acne so am I going to keep clear skin? Asked by Ulysses Villarin 4 months ago.

From my personal experience while being on tri previfem, I did not break out and it actually cleared up my acne. Everyone's body is different so it really just depends on how your body reacts to it. As a warning though, I was on it for 4 years and stopped it about a month ago and I have broken out terribly......especially on my back which is unusual for me. Hope this helps!!! Answered by Nelson Rankhorn 4 months ago.

I've attended both alopathic & naturapathic medical schools & can tell you that no pharmaceutical product is safe, free of side effects etc. Do your own research as I'm pretty sure that you will not believe me. Just type in tri previfem safty/side effects on Yahoo or Google & read about it. Again this is not limited to this one particular hormone/drug but all. Hope that helped.

From tri-sprintec to tri-previfem, side effects?

I'm assuming do to insurance issues my doctor switched me from from tri-sprintec to tri-previfem. I have been on tri-sprintect for like 5 years and it's the only birth control i have been on. Now i am worried if the effects will vary and by switching will it's "potency" go down? Is anyone taking this or have switched birth controls before? Answered by Barry Musil 4 months ago.

Tri-sprintec and Tri-previfem are actually both the same thing (ethinyl estradiol/norgestimate), just made by different companies. If you have been taking your birth control pills regularly, you should not have a problem with different "potency" or any significant decrease in effect. Answered by Piper Karmely 4 months ago.

My pharmacy just told me the same thing. Well they told me that Tri-Sprintec is on "Back Order" and that Tri Previfem is the same thing. I've been taking Tri Sprintec for almost 12 years and i feel different now taking Tri Prevfem. I work in pharmaceuticals so I know that sometimes, even if its the "same drug" the formations can be slightly different (i.e. brands have lower risk of side effects vs generics in some cases). So i'm frustrated that I had to switch after 12 years. I'm riding it out but I do feel some weird side effects. Answered by Jaymie Frix 4 months ago.

Fever blisters and tri-previfem?
I started taking tri-previfem two months ago and every since have had a least one fever blister a week. I am prone to fever blisters but never have them this often and was wondering if the tri-previfem might be the cause. Has anybody else had this problem? Asked by Jaime Tixier 4 months ago.

I went through a period in my life when I was having an outbreak of cold sores practically every week, but it was related to stress more than anything else. A flare up of cold sores can be caused by stress, dehydration, too much sun, getting run down, and various other stressors, but I don't think your medication is the cause. The suggestion for Valtrex is a good one. It is the only thing that works for cold sores. It has made a tremendous difference for me. Answered by Latricia Elza 4 months ago.

Do not under any circumstances put nail polish remover on it, as someone else suggested. Nail polish remover can be extremely harmful if it ends up inside your body. It does contain a drying agent, but is very dangerous. Inhaling the fumes can be deadly, let alone putting it on an open sore on your mouth which will allow it to enter your glandular system. The best way to heal cold sores/fever blisters that I have used is to put tea tree oil in the blister itself and take L-Lysine, which is an enzyme that your body is not producing enough of when you are suffering from these outbreaks. If I am going to be in any stressful situations, I make sure that I take at least 1000 mg of the lysine for several days before the situation, during and after. This has cut my outbreaks down tremendously. The suggestion to dispose of your toothbrush after an outbreak is a good one, you should also get rid of any lip balm or lipsticks that you have been using, as you can keep reinfecting your lips and have continuous outbreaks. Hope this helps, good luck and have a good day. I just had to push the edit button when I noticed the uneducated comments made by divalicio...kill_yourself. You need to take a few more medical and science classes, the herpes virus that causes cold sores and fever blisters is not the same virus that comes from sexual contact. Babies can be born with the herpes virus that causes cold sores, it is a chemical and enzyme based dysfuntion of the body. Get your mind out of the gutter, little lady and try and help people on here instead of blasting garbage at people. Answered by Mittie Angleton 4 months ago.

no, that isn't the cause, at least not directly. Suggest you talk to your doctor about a course of Valtrex, that will get the virus back under control. Answered by Jong Katsch 4 months ago.


My CVS has a back order on my birthcontrol, Tri-sprintec so they gave me Tri-previfem for a month....?
Thanks for you answer! I figured it was just me being silly, but it felt like worth checking, (= Asked by Latina Hoisington 4 months ago.

Those two drugs are exactly the same meds made at exactly the same dose. It's not unheard of for people to have a bit of a wonky effect when switching manufacturers... "bioequivalent" drugs can have a fair amount of variation, as long as they are equally effective. And they are: the previfem will do just a good job at regulating your periods and preventing pregnancy as the sprintec. But it could also be just normal ickiness that you are hyper aware of because you've been switched on to medicines. I wouldn't stress. Answered by Mitsue Spenner 4 months ago.

Sandy has been taking Tri-Previfem for years now. She had sex the day after starting a pack for a new month. When online sources say "Tri-Previfem takes about 7 days to start working. For the first cycle of use only, use an additional form of non-hormonal birth control for the first 7 days to prevent pregnancy until the medication has enough time to work." Do they mean if it is your first time starting the pill or every month when you open the pack? Thank you! Answered by Ileana Roddick 4 months ago.

They mean it for every month when you open the pack Answered by Lino Kari 4 months ago.
