What is TriRegol?

TriRegol (ethinylestradiol & levonorgestrel) is a triphasic contraceptive pill (known as ‘the pill’ or combined oral contraceptive pill) that is used to prevent pregnancy.

Triphasic contraceptive pills contain three different doses of artificial oestrogen and progestogen that need to be taken in the correct order. Some women experience fewer side effects when taking triphasic pills due to the varying hormone levels.

Combined pills can reduce premenstrual symptoms, regulate your periods, and make them lighter and less painful.

How does TriRegol work?

Oestrogen and progestogen fluctuate throughout the course of your menstrual cycle. Combined contraceptive pills use synthetic oestrogen and progestogen to manage these levels in a way that prevents pregnancy.

TriRegol works by:

  1. preventing ovulation so that eggs cannot be fertilised
  2. thickening the mucus in the womb, which makes it more difficult for sperm to reach an egg
  3. thinning the womb lining so that a fertilised egg is less able to implant into the womb and grow

How do I take TriRegol?

Take one tablet daily for 21 days at the same time each day. The hormone levels vary in each tablet, so they need to be taken in the correct order. After finishing a pack, stop taking the pills for seven days. You may get your period (known as a ‘withdrawal bleed’) during this time. After that, begin taking the next pack, even if you are still bleeding.

When first starting TriRegol, you should take the first pill on the first day of your period. If you are unable to do this, you can begin on day 2-5 of your cycle, but you should use an additional contraception method for the first seven days in addition to the pill to prevent pregnancy.

You should always follow the advice of your doctor and read the patient information leaflet when taking any medication

What if I miss a pill?

If you are less than 12 hours late in taking your pill, take the next pill as soon as possible. You will still be protected against pregnancy.

If you are over 12 hours late, the next steps depend on how many pills you have missed and how far into the strip you are. Refer to the patient information leaflet or get professional medical help for further instruction.

Vomiting and diarrhoea

Experiencing vomiting or diarrhoea soon after taking your pill may also decrease the effectiveness of the medication. Treat any instance of severe stomach trouble as though you have not taken your pill.

What are the possible side effects of TriRegol?

Side effects are a possibility of most medications, although combined contraceptive pills are usually well-tolerated and not everyone will experience side effects.

Some of the most common side effects include:

  • mood changes
  • headaches
  • nausea
  • abdominal pain
  • acne
  • breast tenderness

For a complete list of side effects, read the prescription information leaflet.

Seek immediate professional help if you find that you experience a side effect that is particularly concerning.

Blood clots

Women who take combined contraceptive pills have an increased risk of getting a blood clot compared with those who do not. Your risk is further increased with smoking, advanced age, high blood pressure, migraines, certain heart conditions, diabetes, and if you are overweight.

They can be very serious, so it is important to seek immediate medical help if you suspect you have a blood clot. Read the patient information leaflet for symptoms and information on how to spot a blood clot.

What precautions should I take?

TriRegol is intended for sexually active women who do not wish to become pregnant.

Combined pills are usually not recommended for those over 35 or those who smoke.

While serious risks associated with combined contraceptive pills are rare, it is important to read the patient information leaflet thoroughly before taking any medication. Before being prescribed combined contraception, your doctor will need to know your past medical history. You should also always tell your doctor about any other medications or supplements you may be taking, even if they are not prescribed, as there could be an interaction.

Contraceptive pills will not protect you from sexually transmitted infections, so it is important to practice safe sex.
