Trinovum and Pregnancy

Combined Contraceptive Pill »

If you want to try for a baby and you are using Trinovum, it is very easily reversed. Talk to your doctor and they can advise you but you just need to stop taking the contraceptive pill. It may take a couple of months for your menstrual cycle to return to normal but the pill should not affect your fertility levels. It is a good idea to use another method of contraception whilst you wait for your periods to return to normal because the doctor relies on the date of your last regular period in order to determine your due date. This is useful but not essential.

If you are pregnant, you should not use Trinovum. If you think that you might be, take a pregnancy test and visit the doctor for confirmation. Do not stop taking the pill unless you are sure you are pregnant and if you are, stop immediately. The pill should not be used if you are pregnant.

If you have just had a baby, you can start using the contraceptive pill 21 days after giving birth as long as you are not breast-feeding. You must also be fully mobile as there is a higher risk of blood clots after pregnancy. You should start on the 21st day after giving birth to provide immediate protection but if you start after this time, you will need additional contraception for the first seven days of pill use.

If you are breast-feeding, you are advised against using the contraceptive pill. The pill contains oestrogen, which can reduce the amount of milk you produce, and you also can pass small amounts of the hormones to your baby. It is bet to use another method of contraception whilst you are breast-feeding so talk to your doctor about your options. Remember, breast-feeding does not mean you can’t get pregnant so you need to use contraception.
