What is Tri-Linyah Birth Control Pills?

Tri-Linyah is a triphasic combination oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills) that prevents pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation), and thickening the cervical mucus, blocking sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg.

How to Use Tri-Linyah

Tri-Linyah is super easy to use. Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Sprintec before bedtime or just after their evening meal reduces nausea and other side effects. After taking 21 days of active pills, you’ll switch to seven sugar pills (placebo pills, bleeding week pills). These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to keep you in the habit of taking your pill every day.

Tri-Linyah Dosage

Tri-Linyah uses a combination of two hormones estrogen (Ethinyl Estradiol, 0.035mg) and progestin (Norgestimate 0.18/0.215/.25mg) to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen.

Benefits of Tri-Linyah

Tri-Linyah Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Tri-Linyah.

Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, swollen feet or ankles, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, fewer mood swings, and other perks are fairly common. The chances of serious side effects are extremely unlikely, but some cases have been documented. Symptoms include heart disease, blood clotting, shortness of breath, migraines, vision problems, slurred speech, confusion, and fainting. Those who wear contacts or are nearsighted may notice vision problems as well.

These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare.

Frequently Asked Questions

WILL TRI-LINYAH CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN?

Some women may experience weight gain when taking Tri-Linyah and other birth control pills. While there’s a chance that the hormones can give you the munchies, it’s mostly water retention (and not actual fat).

ANY OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TRI-LINYAH?

As with any new prescription, you should go over anything you’re already taking with your doctor or Pandia Health Care Advisor before starting on Tri-Linyah. This includes recreational drugs, over-the-counter meds, and even herbal supplements. Even something that seems relatively harmless such as St. John’s wort can cause Tri-Linyah to be less effective at preventing pregnancy. There are certain meds you should absolutely bring up with your health provider. These are aromatase inhibitors, cancer, HIV, many seizure, and chronic hepatitis C medications.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF WITH TRI-LINYAH?

Every  medication comes with a tiny risk of allergy, including Tri-Linyah. The symptoms are usually mild and include rashes, itching, dizziness. A severe allergy would be: trouble breathing, and swollen lips, throat, or tongue and if that happens, you could call 911 or an ambulance ASAP and take an antihistamine while you are waiting for help.

Depending on your medical history, hormone-based birth control may not be for you. It’s important to discuss your medical history with your physician or one of our helpful Pandia Health Patient Care Advisors before you get started on Tri-Linyah. This is especially the case if you’ve health problems such as cancer, heart disease, blood clots, uncontrolled diabetes, or high blood pressure.

DOES BIRTH CONTROL CAUSE INFERTILITY?
