    How to use Trinessa

    How to use Trinessa

    It’s easy to use Trinessa. 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.

    Can #PeriodsOptional be for real? Check out Pandia Health’s blog post here to learn more!

    Trinessa Dosage

    Trinessa Dosage

    Trinessa birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Norgestimate 0.18/0.215/0.25 mg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 0.035 mg (estrogen).

    Trinessa Side Effects

    Trinessa Side Effects

    Most people who take Trinessa 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 Trinessa, 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 Trinessa 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.

    What is Trinessa?

    Trinessa is a combination oral contraceptive pill (cOCP, birth control medication, birth control pills). It 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.

    Trinessa 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 Health Medical group’s doctors recommend progestin-only pill (POPs), IUD with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

    Frequently Asked Questions

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

    One of our Patient Care Advisors or licensed physicians will always review the medications and supplements you’re currently taking before prescribing Trinessa. Certain drugs (recreational, over-the-counter, or prescription) can interact with Trinessa and make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Drugs that may interact with Trinessa 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 Trinessa. 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.

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

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

    Trinessa 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 Trinessa. Our Pandia Health Care Advisors are standing by to help you figure out the best birth control method given your health history.

    It’s easy to get Trinessa at just about any pharmacy near you with a doctor’s prescription. Concerned about your privacy? Our doctor-founded, doctor-led team at Pandia Health is happy to connect you with a licensed physician who can help you get Trinessa or any other birth control you need, discreetly and conveniently.

    If you don’t have insurance, don’t worry! Pandia Health has a range of payment options.

    It’s not true that Trinessa causes infertility. If you’re taking Trinessa 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!
