ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN® LO has always been about the basics:
Prevention of Pregnancy and Cycle Control
ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN® LO is an effective oral contraceptive with dependable cycle control and a demonstrated tolerability profile.
ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN® LO is a combination oral contraceptive comprised of 25 mcg ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate, a progestin. The combination of a low dose of norgestimate and a lower level of estrogen allows for the highly effective contraception and is designed to provide a balance hormonal exposure in a tri-phasic design. In a randomized, multicentered study, patients on ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN® LO experienced lower rates of breakthrough bleeding and spotting and a comparable tolerability profile to Loestrin FE.1
The combination of ethinyl estradiol (EE) and norgestimate have been used for 25 years for the prevention of pregnancy in women who elect to use oral contraceptives as a method of contraception. Learn here why ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN® LO may be the ideal OC for your patients.
