What is TriRegol?
TriRegol is a contraceptive pill. The active ingredients in this contraceptive are ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. TriRegol is a reliable pill and very easy to use. You can order TriRegol online through the pharmacies that work with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
The pill prevents the formation of a pregnancy. The hormones in TriRegol prevent the egg cell from ripening. They also affect the mucous membrane in the uterus and cervix, so that a fertilization is impossible. Doctors also prescribe the pill in case of menstrual problems (abnormal bleeding, menstrual pain, irregular cycle). When using TriRegol a steady, slight withdrawal bleeding occurs.
How to use TriRegol?
TriRegol is a triphasic pill. A strip contains 21 pills, divided into three colors. Each color has a different dose of the active substances. On the back of the strip are numbers. Start with number one pill and take the next pill every day until the pack is empty. Then follows a stop week: seven days without taking a pill. During the stop week you get a withdrawal bleeding. On the eighth day you start with a new strip.
Take the pill at a fixed time. The reliability of this method of contraception reduces if you miss a pill, take it too late or vomit. Also in case of severe diarrhea, the pill may become less effective. You will find information in the leaflet on what to do in these cases. You can also ask a doctor or pharmacist for advice.
The partner pharmacies offer TriRegol available online. The dosage is as follows:
- Adult women: take one pill once a day for 21 days, followed by a stop week.
Read the instructions before use.
If you are taking the pill, you can sometimes experience side effects. These are symptoms such as:
- Bleeding between periods;
- swollen or painful breasts;
- headache, migraine;
- gastrointestinal disorders;
- Fluid build (thick ankles)
If you keep suffering from these side effects for a few months, please talk to a doctor. If you suffer from severe or serious adverse reactions (see leaflet), consult a doctor immediately.
