Product Description
Common use

Ortho Tri-Cyclen contains estrogenic compound ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate, a synthetic form of progesterone or a progestin (female hormone) which prevents ovulation and participates in regulation of menstruation. Progesterone is produced in an ovary after an egg matured and was released from it to prevent the release of further eggs. In case of pregnancy levels of progesterone in blood remain high maintaining the womb lining. Thus this hormone 'tricks' the body informing it that ovulation has already occurred and this way it may be used as contraception to prevent pregnancy. Ortho Tri-Cyclen impedes sperm cells to reach the uterus acting on cervical mucus and uterine lining and makes it more difficult for a fertilized egg to adhere to the uterus. It can also be used to treat severe achne.
