Ortho Tricyclen

Were you looking for information about Ortho Tri-Cyclen? Ortho Tricyclen is a common misspelling of Ortho Tri-Cyclen.
Ortho Tri-Cyclen® is a prescription oral contraceptive that is also commonly used for treating acne. It works to prevent pregnancy in several ways -- by stopping ovulation, changing the cervical mucus, and altering the lining of the uterus.
The medication comes in tablet form and is taken once a day. It is important that you take Ortho Tri-Cyclen every day and at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that will be easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy. While most people tolerate Ortho Tri-Cyclen well, potential side effects can include breakthrough bleeding or spotting, nausea or vomiting, and breast tenderness.
