Tri Femynor is a combination pill that contains two hormones, progestin and estrogen, that work together to prevent pregnancy. Tri Femynor inhibits ovulation and thickens vaginal mucus to prevent fertilization of an egg. Tri Femynor also acts to create changes to the lining of the uterus and prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Tri-Femynor at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Tri-Sprintec for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
- How Is Tri Femynor Used?
Tri Femynor comes in a package of 28 tablets and works by taking 21 active pills, followed by seven inactive pills, at the same time each day. The seven inert pills keep you in the habit of taking a pill at the same time and the placebo allows menses to take place. Tri Femynor has shown promise in fighting certain types of acne. Tri Femynor does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.
- Is Tri Femynor Easy to Get?
Tri Femynor is typically available at participating pharmacies. Check with your insurance provider to see if they cover all or part of the cost of your medication.
- What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Tri Femynor?
Let your doctor know about any medical history of blood clots or blood clotting disorders. Tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or suffer from depression as some medications can make your symptoms worse.
Although it is rare, some women have an allergic reaction to Tri Femynor. Seek medical attention if you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as rash, itching or swelling of the face or throat, severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.
To be most effective, take Tri Femynor at the same time each day. Missing a dose may put you at risk for pregnancy, so take your pill as soon as you remember. Always begin a new pack of Tri Femynor on time, whether or not you have your period.
Because this medication can cause dark patches on the skin, sunlight can worsen the effect. Avoid tanning booths and sun lamps while taking Tri Femynor. Tri Femynor can cause stomach upset, so it's a good idea to take it after a meal or before bedtime to prevent nausea and vomiting.
- Are There Any Known Side Effects?
Common side effects might include nausea and vomiting or headache and breast tenderness. Some women report swelling of the ankles or feet due to fluid retention, which may also cause fluctuations in weight. Some vaginal bleeding or spotting between periods may be experienced, but this typically happens during the first few months of use while your body adjusts.
Less common but more serious side effects can include mood changes, lumps in the breast, or sudden heavy bleeding. Although serious side effects are rare, talk to your doctor if you experience pain in the jaw or chest, confusion, or sudden shortness of breath.
- Can I Take Tri Femynor With Other Medications?
Some drugs may interact with Tri Femynor such as aromatase inhibitors and certain medications that treat chronic hepatitis C. Some drugs can inhibit the efficacy of hormonal birth control by interfering with the level of birth control hormones in the body. These might include drugs used to treat seizures or HIV, as well as supplements like St. John's Wort.
- Does Tri Femynor Contain Estrogen?
Yes. Tri Femynor contains the hormones estrogen and progestin found in combination birth control types. The dose of estrogen in combination pills can vary. Talk to your doctor about a low-dose pill if you have reactions to estrogen or if you are taking a medication that contains estrogen.
- Does Tri Femynor Treat Acne?
Yes, it does. Because progestin is one of the active ingredients in Tri Femynor, it can be an effective fighter against mild to moderate acne. Tri Femynor acts to reduce the production of pore-clogging sebum to help keep skin clear and bright.
