Genuine Trinovum (ethinylestradiol and norethisterone)

What is TriNovum?

Oral contraception has, today, become one of the most popular forms of contraception amongst women. This daily hormonal contraception is one of the three hormonal contraceptive methods. It consists of synthetic versions of naturally existing female hormones – oestrogen and progestogen. A contraceptive pill is a combined pill if it consists of both the female hormones in synthetic versions. On the other hand, if it consists of only a single synthetic female hormone, progestogen, it is called mini-pill. One of the most popular combined pills used by women around the world is TriNovum. This combined pill is a triphasic combined pill, meaning that it consists of three different dosage strengths of progestogen in it.

The benefits of TriNovum

TriNovum, being a triphasic pill, has its own benefits when it comes to preventing you from conceiving. As said earlier, you take three different dosages of the pill during the entire period. This helps in mimicking your natural menstrual cycle stage by stage. It thus gives you the benefit of significantly reducing your chances of experiencing side effects such as bleeding, spotting, mood swings and missed periods. You can get immediate protection against pregnancy if the pill is taken on the very first day of your period. As TriNovum is a combined pill, it also gives the benefit of reducing the pain you experience during your period. The pill also helps in regularting your periods along with being a treatment for endometriosis.

Working of TriNovum

TriNovum is a combined pill, consisting of ethinylestradiol (synthetic version of oestrogen) and norethisterone (synthetic version of progestogen), as its chief ingredients. Being a combined pill, it functions in three different ways to prevent you from conceiving. TriNovum first releases hormones that are released when ovulation occurs or after. This tricks your body into thinking that ovulation has already occurred and that an egg is already released. It then works towards preventing a sperm from entering the womb by thickening the cervical mucus. TriNovum also prevents thickening of the womb lining, which does not allow an egg, if produced and fertilised, to attach and grow further.
