Ortho tri cyclen and nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Ortho tri cyclen and nausea


Avatar n tn I have been taking birth control pills for about 6 years (Ortho tri cyclen lo for about 5). I never had side effects until recently. In the last 6-8 months, I've gained 20 pounds with no change in diet or exercise and have been extremely emotional during my period. What could be the reason for the sudden change. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I have read that orthi tri cyclen is one of the best for acne problems and ongoing nausea is a pretty rare side effect. If she tries to take it at night and still has problems then I'm not sure what to tell you. The mini pill has no effect on acne so her doctor was kinda barking up the wrong tree with that idea. But since she didn't have nausea with it, then maybe the estrogen is the cause of her nausea.
Avatar f tn I been taking ortho tri-cyclen lo 1 yr and a half, this last pack i have missed some days and double up on the pill, i didn't take any of the green pills. didn't get my period and started a new pack and then had spotting on the first week of the pills. I am starting on week three and starting to feel real tired and swollen breast and occasion nausea. My bf is overseas and last time we where together was in december, is there any reason to be alarm, can i be pregnant .
Avatar n tn I got pregnant while on the pill. I was taking Ortho tri cyclen for 7 years and then switched to Ortho tri cyclen lo and got pregnant a month later. My mom got pregnant while she was on the pill as well.
1699847 tn?1306970771 I have been on the pill for years now. I am currently on Ortho-tri-cyclen-lo and I am thinking about switching to Seasonique so I won't get 12 periods a year. I want to be on a pill that won't make me gain weight or give me major acne. Any tips/help.
Avatar n tn Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Estrostep, and Yaz. These are available under prescription. Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Warm regards.
Avatar f tn Sometimes a pill isn't right for you, I was taking Ortho Tri Cyclen and had to switch to low because it was upsetting my stomach and making me dizzy. There really isn't anything you can eat to change it. It could also just be her body adjusting to the new hormonal changes, and it will level itself out. She can stick it out for another few weeks and see how it goes, or talk to her doctor and ask what she should do, whether it be change it or not.
Avatar n tn i found out after being on ortho tri cyclen lo for 2 years that i had a bad gallbladder and it could be due to the bc pills... best thing to do is go to the pharmacy and ask for the leaflet they keep in the boxes of pills..
1250698 tn?1371354879 I've been on Ortho-cyclen, Ortho-tri-cyclen, Ortho-tri-cyclen Lo, Nuvaring. The types I have not tried was progesterone only, shots, IUD, and implants. Nuvaring was my latest and that was the worst experience I have ever had. Every single type I have used, I have had the same symptoms: nausea, headaches, dizziness, irregular cycles, spotting, weight gain, and mood swings. Since May of this year, I have been doing it naturally, but I am still trying to figure out when I ovulate...
Avatar n tn I have been on ortho tri-cyclen lo for about 2 1/2 years now and I noticed a change about 2 months later. I had to go on it because I had severe cramps. I also gained a few pounds because of it but thats about it.
Avatar n tn I tried ortho tri-cyclen lo and found it to cause extreme mood swings, depression, and completely took away any sex drive I had left after the other stuff. It was pointless to be on it. I got the mirena IUD after my daughter was born and it is messing with my system as well. Iv heard and read the best IUD is the old-fashioned copper one that I declined. Im getting it ASAP.
Avatar n tn Yes i do have those little side effects with it like, headaches and some nausea and nervousness. But my PMS is extremly under control now and my skin has cleared up tremendously. I went from a pill similar to Ortho Tricyclin (high hormone) to Yaz which is a lesser hormone and it's done wonderful things for me. The Ortho Tricyclin on put me through major mood swings and i couldn't kick the last few pounds after having my daughter and my skin was horrible.
Avatar f tn I was on BC (ortho tri cyclen and yasim) since I was 17. I got off the pill back in Oct. I fell pregnant this past January but unfortunately lost the baby at 8 weeks in Feb. When we found out, 2 tests were positive and 2 negative. We went to the doc and their test was negative and then a week later the blood came out positive...it must have been a sign that the pregnancy was ill anyway at the time. I got my period when I was 11. I have always been regular.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if any of it got on my vaginal area but I'm just going to assume it did. I take ortho tri cyclen lo and I missed a pill this month but i took two the next day like you're supposed to. Normally I get my period before I get to the green pills just because my cycle has always been really screwed up but this time I didn't and it's my first day on the green pill last month and I haven't had my period.
Avatar f tn I was taking Ortho Tri Cyclen. that helped me.. then they switched me to the patch. I did not like that one at all. then they put me on the Nuvaring. I didn't like that one either because sometimes it would fall out or not fall out it would move and I could feel it and I have to go to the bathroom and fix it. so I would say Ortho Tri Cyclen. but everybody has their own opinions.
Avatar m tn October of this year, which was on October 5th, 20011 I had it removed and switched to Ortho-tri-cyclen Lo. I had a full period on October 7th until Oct. 12th. During this time I was on the regular pills not sugar because of my start date due to the removal of IUD. Then November came and I was back on track- meaning when it was time for me to start on my sugar pill it was the date I started my period. So now, I"m suppose to start my period on Dec. 4th and now its the 6th.
Avatar n tn I had my first Mirena IUD inserted today by my ob/gyn. The only mistake that I know as of today is that I read way too much on the internet about other's experiences. I am 36 and have never had children. The pain was very crampy but only lasted a few minutes during the insertion. Felt some lower back pain/pressure. I am pretty much a wimp-----but I did not faint, vomit, etc. as I have read. Everyone is different. I took 3- 200mg Advil's before my visit as directed by my physician.
Avatar f tn I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, and it did, so mine was the lowest dose of hormone possible in a BC, it's just all about how your body reacts to coming of from it.
Avatar m tn I am 16, I've had my boyfriend for 3 years. I am on Ortho Tri Cyclen birth control pills and I have been on it for a year now. I don't take my pills very well, I tend to miss quite a bit. I could miss 2 days, then take it 1, then miss 4 days. It's very off and on and I occasionally will bleed but I believe it's because of me missing pills. If I do take the pill, I do not take them at the same time.
Avatar n tn I've tried 3 birth control pills over the past year...namely Desogen, Ortho-tri-cyclen-lo, and Mircette (in that order). I tried the first for a good 3-4 months, and was extremely sick with nausea every day. It did not seem to matter if I took them at night, with food, etc.. I tried the other two brands with similar result. The nausea was extreme to the point it made me feel as if I had the flu non-stop (which I did not). I am 100% sure I am not pregnant. Do you have any suggestions?
Avatar n tn A couple of weeks ago I started taking ortho tri-cyclen. About seven days into it, during sex, the condom broke. Now, almost two weeks later, I'm having nausea (in the evenings) and mood swings. Could I be pregnant or could it be the birth control that's making me feel ill? A week into a pregnancy wouldn't already be producing symptoms would it? Please help!
1123420 tn?1350564758 i've taken a bunch of different pills (yaz, yasmin, lo estrin, micronor, ortho tri cyclen lo and a few others...I've taken the patch, the shot...I've been taking BC since I was about 12 because of painful periods. And personally...they've all had their ups and downs. The EASIEST by far was the depo shot but it caused weight gain...and so did the patch. but I am currently on micronor (which is the mini-pill and contains progestrone only) and I love it.
1090903 tn?1300677530 Hi everybody, my name is Amanda and whats been happening to me this whole month is what been driving me crazy.... For the past 7 months, I have been taking Ortho Tri Cyclen lo. And i get my period every 4 weeks. It narmally comes on a Wednesday and stops on Monday. On Saturday, (09/26/09) me and my man were having sex. 2:00 a.m Sunday Morning, i noticed light red spotting and it continued through to Monday then it got heavier and became my period and lasted to Friday.
1429510 tn?1283128976 Hey there. I have been taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo birth control for about 3 months now. I have had a good percentage of the side effects...increased hunger, nausea, headaches, bloating, etc. But I also noticed that these match the symptoms of pregnancy. I have taken my pills every day (usually around 9:30pm, sometimes a little later in the night). And, the part I'm a bit embarrassed to admit/ask...I haven't had actual intercourse with my boyfriend, but he had fingered me and such...
Avatar f tn I just switched from low-dose birth control pills (because I was on them for 3 years and then halfway through a pill pack started my period, which lasted for two weeks) to higher dose pills (ortho tri-cyclen lo to ortho tri-cyclen), and it's been 8 days on them and I think they're making me incredibly cranky. They could also cause the headaches and nausea, but I recall a bad episode of headache/nausea before the switch, too--and that time I actually vomited several times.
1095600 tn?1333826607 Before I had my son who is now 4 months old I was on the regular ortho tri cyclen for 11 years. I wouldn't take it at exactly the same time, but close within a few hours and I missed one a few times all together would have to double up and no issues. Not sure if the Lo if you have to be more careful with taking it at the exact same time everyday? I know doubling up on pills can make you feel off, so that would be normal. Are you late for your period?
Avatar n tn ok i used ortho tri cyclen lo and i have a very beautiful daughter but in the beginning i have severe bleeding and was sent to the hospital. they had performed a urine pregnancy test and a blood test and both came out neg my husband and i had not had sex for 3 weeks because of the bleeding and two weeks after leaving the hospital i went for a pap test and my obgyn said i was pregnant.
Avatar n tn Thanks for stating that. I knew the statement made about "killing" the egg was not accurate but I did not have the backup for it.
Avatar n tn I have been on birth control (ortho tricyclen lo) for the past 4 months, and I think that is what has caused the changed. The tiny fissures around my anus and the itching inside of my rectum and around the anus are still occuring everyday and are absolutely AWFUL!! I haven't gone to my doctor about this for months because he'll just keep trying to convince me that its due to chemical irritants...I know better! Anyone had any luck yet figuring something out?
