If you’re over the age of 15 and looking for an effective form of birth control, Tri-Sprintec is a perfect choice. At Nurx™ we love that it also has many other benefits, such as helping to treat mild acne and reducing period pain.
Tri-Sprintec is a hormone-based contraceptive. It contains two hormones, progestin and estrogen, that work together to stop ovulation and alter the cervical mucus and uterus lining to keep sperm out.See full product details
- Is Tri-Sprintec Easy to Use?
Tri-Sprintec comes with 28 pills — the first 21 contain active ingredients while the last 7 are inactive. There's one for each day of the month, so you never have to worry about forgetting to start a new pack after your period. Simply take one pill by mouth at the same time each day for the best results.
- How to Get Tri-Sprintec
Tri-Sprintec is easy to find at most pharmacies, but you will need a prescription from a doctor. If you don't have easy access to a doctor or you want a bit more privacy, Nurx can help. We partner with licensed physicians who can safely prescribe birth control through our secure telehealth platform. We also work with trusted pharmacies across the country to send medications right to your house. It's our goal to make birth control accessible and affordable for everyone. That's why we also work with a range of insurance providers to help cover the cost of your prescription. Even if you're not covered by insurance or want to pay out of pocket, Tri-Sprintec is a generic brand of the popular Ortho Tri-Cyclen birth control so it costs less to buy.
- What if I Miss a Tri-Sprintec Pill?
If you miss a pill, follow the instructions that come with your Tri-Sprintec or ask a doctor or pharmacist what to do. You might need to use another form of contraception, such as condoms, for a short time. If you miss taking an inactive pill, you don't need to do anything at all. Take the rest of the pills in your pack as normal.
- Can I Breastfeed if I take Tri-Sprintec?
Tri-Sprintec can affect your ability to produce breast milk. It can also pass into breast milk, which could have a negative effect on your baby. Always consult with your doctor before taking Tri-Sprintec while breastfeeding.
- Are There Any Precautions?
Before taking any form of birth control pill, you should talk to a doctor. Avoid using Tri-Sprintec if you are allergic to estrogen or progestin, and tell your doctor of any other allergies. Tri-Sprintec can affect your blood sugar, so be sure to let your doctor know if you have diabetes as you might need to adjust your diabetes medication, exercise program, or diet. Also tell your doctor know if you have a history of any other medical conditions, such as blood clots, high blood pressure, abnormal breast exams, depression, diabetes, migraines, heart problems, and liver disease. Although rare, Tri-Sprintec can increase the effect of these conditions and others in some people.
