Triphasil Birth Control Pills

As a "combined" oral contraceptive, Triphasil® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill that contains two different types of hormones. Like most birth control pills, Triphasil provides very effective birth control (when used properly), is relatively easy to use, and helps regulate menstrual bleeding.
 
Most women are able to take this birth control pill without any problems. However, as with any medication, side effects are possible. Common side effects of birth control pills such as Triphasil include:
 
  • Headaches
  • Breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods
  • Nausea or vomiting.
 
Triphasil is sometimes prescribed "off-label" (for unapproved uses) to treat acne, heavy menstrual bleeding, painful menstrual periods, and other conditions.
