Ortho Tri-Cyclen is a female hormone combination drug – ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate – that alert ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). This medication also becomes a cause of cervical mucus and uterine lining changes, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
Ortho Tri-Cyclen is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy. Control Ortho Tri-Cyclen is also applied to treat acne, painful menstruation and some gynecological diseases.

- You may need to apply additional contraceptive means, such as condoms or spermicide, when you begin using Ortho Tri-Cyclen for the first time or if you miss a dose. It is better to follow the doctor’s recommendations.
- The situation with missing a dose enhances risk to become pregnant. Be attentive and read instruction for use in case of what to do if you miss a dose.
