Tri Sprintec is a combination medication (Ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) containing reproductive hormones that are responsible for preventing ovulation (the process whereby an egg is released from an ovary). Tri Sprintec also results in changes in the uterine and cervical mucus lining, making it difficult for sperm to reach the uterus. Therefore, this makes it impossible for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. Tri Sprintec works by preventing egg release (ovulation) during the menstrual cycle.
Tri-Sprintec is a progestin and estrogen combination that is used to prevent pregnancy. This medication works by preventing ovulation during your menstrual cycle.
Tri-Sprintec changes the lining of the uterus to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg and makes vaginal fluid thicker to prevent sperm from reaching an egg.
A fertilized egg passes out of the body if it does not attach to the uterus. Tri-Sprintec can help in other ways apart from helping in preventing pregnancy. Some other functions may include treating acne, make our periods more regular, decrease your risk of ovarian cysts, and reduce painful periods and blood loss.
