  • How Long Does It Take for TriNessa to Work?

    TriNessa will typically work after you've taken the pill for seven consecutive days. However, some physicians recommend using a backup form of birth control until you've taken TriNessa for 21 consecutive days. Speak with your doctor about your menstrual cycle and start date to find the most reliable way to prevent pregnancy.

  • Does TriNessa Protect Against Other Diseases and Infections?

    TriNessa is effective only for preventing pregnancy. It does not protect against HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, or sexually transmitted infections. To protect against these, you should use a barrier birth control method, such as condoms.
