What is TriLegest Fe Birth Control Pills?

TriLegest Fe  is a triphasic birth control pill. Our CEO and Co-Founder, Dr. Sophia Yen generally does not recommend triphasics because life is better on monophasics. Watch our video on Triphasics vs. monophasics here.   If you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications, this medication is NOT for you. Instead, Pandia Heath […] Read More

How to Use TriLegest Fe

It’s easy to use TriLegest Fe. The most important thing to remember is to take your pill at the same time every day, and no more than 24 hours apart. For 21 days in a row, you’ll take the “active” white pill. For the next 7 days in a row, you’ll take the light green “inactive” pill. This helps you stay in the habit of taking a daily pill. Your withdrawal bleed will occur during the week you’re taking your inactive pills, usually within about two to three days of inactive pills.

TriLegest Fe Dosage

TriLegest Fe birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Norethindrone Acetate 1mg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 20/30/35 ug (estrogen).

Benefits of TriLegest Fe

Reduce the risk of ovarian cysts (as in polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS])

Improves acne.

TriLegest Fe Side Effects

Most people who take TriLegest Fe experience no side effects. If side effects occur, they are usually mild.

Some minor side effects are: headaches, nausea, breast tenderness, fatigue, and decreased sex drive. Many experience positive side effects such as: reduced acne, fewer mood swings, and lighter, easier, and less painful periods!

While very unlikely, serious side effects can occur while taking TriLegest Fe, including blood clots. Blood clots can travel throughout the bloodstream and block blood flow to different parts of the body. This can cause potentially life-threatening issues like deep vein thrombosis, heart attack, or stroke.

The good news is that the risk of serious TriLegest Fe side effects is extremely low. Our expert birth control doctors and Pandia Health Care Advisors can answer any questions and concerns about your birth control options.

Frequently Asked Questions

DOES TRILEGEST FE CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN?

There is no direct link between TriLegest Fe and weight gain. Some women experience changes in their appetite that may lead to weight gain while taking TriLegest Fe. Others may find that their bodies retain more fluid while taking TriLegest Fe, even though they actually don’t gain any body fat.

ANY OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TRILEGEST FE?

One of our Patient Care Advisors or licensed physicians will always review the medications and supplements you’re currently taking before prescribing TriLegest Fe. Certain drugs (recreational, over-the-counter, or prescription) can interact with TriLegest Fe and make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Drugs that may interact with TriLegest Fe include HIV drugs, anti-seizure drugs, antibiotics, and even herbal supplements like St. John’s wort.

Women who have high blood pressure or take medications to control blood pressure should not take TriLegest Fe. Our Pandia Health medical team recommends other options including progestin-only pill (POPs), IUDs with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), copper IUDs, implants (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF WITH TRILEGEST FE?

You shouldn’t smoke anyway, but especially not if you take estrogen containing birth control pills like TriLegest Fe. Smoking increases the risk of serious side effects like blood clots, especially in women who are older than 35.

Don’t take TriLegest Fe if you’re allergic to any of its ingredients. Signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction to TriLegest Fe are rare and usually very mild and may include itching, hives, or dizziness. Serious allergic reactions to TriLegest Fe can occur in very rare cases. Stop taking TriLegest Fe and call 911 immediately if you experience swelling in the lips, mouth, or tongue, or if you have a hard time breathing.

TriLegest Fe isn’t for everyone. Women with a history of certain medical conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver cancer, or severe migraines should not take TriLegest Fe. Our Pandia Health Care Advisors are standing by to help you figure out the best birth control method given your health history.

HOW EASY IS IT TO GET TRILEGEST FE?

It’s easy to get TriLegest Fe at just about any pharmacy near you with a doctor’s prescription. Concerned about your privacy?

DOES TRILEGEST FE BIRTH CONTROL CAUSE INFERTILITY?

It’s not true that TriLegest Fe causes infertility. If you’re taking TriLegest Fe and want to have a baby, talk to your doctor and then stop taking the medication. Normal fertility should return within one or two menstrual cycles after your last pill. Dr. Yen explains more about birth control and infertility in this video. Watch to learn more!
