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 Fritz Dagres 5 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 Rodrigo Deiter 5 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 Deb Whan 5 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!!!

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.

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 Breann Klebes 5 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 Darren Emerling 5 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?

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 Carman Datson 5 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 Arnulfo Stoy 5 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 Daryl Blinks 5 months ago.
Early period on Tri-Previfem?
I recently switched from Ortho TriCyclen to Tri-Previfem (generic Ortho TriCyclen) and my period started early. Anyone else have problems with irregular periods on this drug?
Asked by Carmelia Phelps 5 months ago.
I don't know about these specific drugs, but if you have just been switched the generic form of the drug you were taking before, it is exactly the same drug only it costs less because it isn't branded, and so it shouldn't work any different at all. Answered by Logan Kozan 5 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 Roseanna Goldsworthy 5 months ago.
They mean it for every month when you open the pack Answered by Rolanda Mcneary 5 months ago.
Yaz to Tri-Previfem..?
I used to take Yaz birth control, but due to a change in insurance I have to switch to Tri-Previfem (generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen). I know that Yaz and Ortho Tri-Cyclen are similar, but has anyone experienced bad side effects from switiching between these birth controls or taking Tri-Previfem?
