It is a triphasic combined contraceptive pill. It works thanks to two artificial hormones called ethinylestradiol (synthetic oestrogen) and gestodene (synthetic progestogen). The hormones are present in different doses to mimic the natural cycle and work in three ways to prevent pregnancy.
Firstly, the ethinylestradiol tricks the body into thinking ovulation has already occurred, which prevents the release of an egg. Then the gestodene thickens the cervical mucus so that even if an egg were released, the sperm would be unable to reach it. Finally, the gestodene also works to make the womb lining thinner, meaning that a fertilised egg would be unable to attach and develop.
It provides women with a number of benefits, such as being almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. In addition, it can help regulate the menstrual cycle, meaning that periods will be less painful and heavy.
As it is a combined contraceptive pill, it can provide immediate protection against pregnancy when taken on the first day of your period. Because it contains different doses of the hormones, the body is less likely to develop certain side effects such as water retention. It is also the only combined contraceptive which is proven to either maintain or increase your libido.
It is a triphasic contraceptive, which means that the tablets will contain different dosages of hormones. It is essential that you take them in the correct order and for immediate protection you can start taking it on the first day of your period. If you’d rather begin to take it at a different point in your cycle, you should use another form of contraception for the first seven days.
You should begin by taking one white pill every day for seven days, followed by seven days of the light peach colour and finally take the dark peach coloured ones for the last seven days. After 21 days of taking it you should have a seven day break before starting another pack. During these seven days you will experience some bleeding but you will still be protected against pregnancy.
Trinovum is one of the contraceptives with the least side effects, as the body adapts well to the artificial hormones thanks to the different doses. However, some women may experience side effects when they first start to take it. These are usually rare, are unlikely to continue for prolonged periods of time and can include nausea, headaches or breast tenderness.
The most common side effect with Trinovum is irritability, whilst uncommon symptoms can include rashes, hair loss or growth and mood swings. If the side effects are severe or persistent you should consult a doctor and consider an alternative contraceptive.
