Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo Tablets

Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo® (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol) is like many other birth control pills in that it contains a combination of hormones that work together to prevent pregnancy. However, unlike older oral contraceptives, these tablets contain a lower dose of hormones.
 
Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo is a triphasic birth control pill, which means that there are three different "phases" of pills in each pack, plus the last week of tablets with no active ingredients. Each week has a different amount of the progesterone hormone. This is why it is important to take Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo pills in the correct order.
