STD Home > Side Effects of Trivora
Potential Trivora side effects include breast tenderness or swelling, nausea, and headaches. Most women actually tolerate birth control pills well; if side effects do occur, they are usually not dangerous but can be bothersome. Some of the potentially serious side effects that should be reported to a healthcare provider include breast lumps, high cholesterol, and heavy vaginal bleeding between periods.
Trivora® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a generic version of Triphasil®. As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Trivora; however, not every woman who uses the contraceptive will experience side effects. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
