What is Ortho Tri-Cyclen?
The Ortho Tri-Cyclen medication contains a combination of female hormones that stop the ovulation process in females. The medication changes the uterine and cervical lining, thereby making it harder for the sperm to reach the uterus and stopping the egg from fertilizing.
It is an effective form of birth control and is commonly as contraception to prevent pregnancy. You should follow the instructions that have been prescribed by your doctor when you are using Ortho Tri-Cyclen. During the first month, you are recommended to use backup birth control methods such as spermicide and condoms, as missing a dose can increase the chances of you becoming pregnant.
