Trivora is a branded combined contraceptive pill that protects you from getting pregnant.
It’s known as a “triphasic” pill, which sounds a bit like something out of a natural history show, but it’s pretty simple. A triphasic pill is a pill that contains three different dosages of progestin and estrogen that you take for 21 days, followed by 7 days of inactive pills with no hormones.
The 21 active pills are three different colours, for each of the three dosages. Six are blue (containing 30/50 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel), five are white (containing 40/75 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) and 10 are pink (containing 30/125 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). So speaking plainly, different pills with different hormones in them.
As a triphasic pill, because it contains different amounts of hormones and mimics the body’s natural cycle very closely, it’s very important that Trivora pills are taken in the correct order.
