Triphasil / Trigestrel Oral Contraceptives

Hi,

I have heard some bad things about Triphasil / Trigestrel Oral Contraceptives, more bad things about Triphasil but I hear the latter is basically exactly the same pill so I assume the rumours are about Trigestrel too. I hear they cause cysts and that a high number of woman battle to fall pregnant long after they have stopped taking them. Is this true? Am I messing with my chances of having children in teh future? I am 21 years ol and I have been taking these contraceptives for at least 5 years.

All oral contraceptives pose a risk for severe headaches, blood clots, cardio-vascular disease and stroke. Oral contraceptives can be used to treat the formation of ovarian cysts. Some people do struggle to fall pregnant after taking oral contraceptives but some people fall pregnant within the first month. I therefore, sincerely doubt that it will influence your chances of falling pregnant in the future. There are other forms of contraception that you can discuss with your gynaecologist.

Hi I was using triphasil pills for over two years now and when I go for refill I found trigestrel pills so I want to know if they are the same or am taking a risk of falling pregnant.

Sometimes your period gets delayed, it's even possible to skip a month. It's difficult to say because Triphasil is different for everyone.

I have recently switched to triphasel due to the fact that Dis chem cant get hold of any trigestil. But this month i have picked up weight like crazy, my blood pressure went skyrocket, i feel light headed and i have very bad mood swings. Plus i am always tired. It 9 am in the morning and it feels like im ready to pass out. My energy is like a 0. I never use these problems.

I've only been on Trigestrel for about 2 weeks now & have had so many side effects its painful ! Went from having flawless skin to having terrible acne Total loss of sex drive Cravings yet loss of apitite But the worst side effect of all is the continual vaginal itch & dryness. No matter what do, even tried several topical creams it just won't go away. Regret ever going to the clinic & accepting these pills. Trigestrel is BAD news!

I have been using Trigestrel for years and my only problem is that when its that time of the month I only see a drop of blood after taking the last Red pill, I think this is abnormal because the period pain are so strong. Please help - is it wise to change to another type of pill.

I went from Yaz to Trigestrel(lost my job and had totake what was offered at the local clinic) and my skin went from FLAWLESS to having zits all over my forehead. To clear your acne stick to Yaz, Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Yasmin or Estrostep.

Posted by: Neo | 2012/04/26

If all contraceptives pose such risks,why are we let to take them knowing the risk... iam 22yrs and just started on trigestrel but reading peoples views and feedback i believe i made a wrong decision taking oral contraceptives. we do not take going to the gynaecologist as an option cause you will have to get them at a chemist which is a long term expense,where at a public clinic its free and thy gv us dis trigestrel.
