... pharmacy noone said anything about changing my prescription to tri previferm and after the.first month of pills I have found I am now pregnant. Can switching from one to.the other even though I take them religiously and am not at a point in my life to raise another baby cause pregnancy? I have been reading that they are the same pills :(
No, this change would not have been the cause of your pregnancy. Did you miss any pills or were you late on any? Were you recently, or in the month before you found out you were pregnant, on antibiotics? Antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of the Pill and you can become pregnant if you dont use back up. One of the biggest reasons for contraceptive failure is due to either antibiotics or missing pills. No pill is 100% effective. They are about 99% effective. This means out of every 100 women, 1 woman will become pregnant anyway. You may just be very fertile.
Don't let anyone kid you... it is the same medication, but the binders are different because it is made by someone else. It could be that your body didn't break down the binders correctly, leading to the medication not being absorbed. I was switched from tri-sprintec to tri-previfem last month and my period started a week early and was very light. I also had cramps (havn't had those in years!!). A lot of people have complained about different BC pills that the manufacturer makes, so I think it has something to do with the inactive ingredients in the medications. I will not be taking the tri previfem next month!
