Tri-Levlen Overview


Tri-Levlen is a prescription birth control medication used to prevent pregnancy. Tri-Levlen contains two hormones, levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, which belong to a group of drugs called hormonal contraceptives. These hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation and by altering cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus to prevent sperm from entering. 

This medication comes in tablet form and is taken once daily, with or without food.

Common side effects of Tri-Levlen include breast tenderness and vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods.
