Concerned about acne? Some birth control options—including TriNessa—may help acne flare ups. TriNessa is a daily contraceptive pill that uses the hormones estrogen and progestin to prevent pregnancy. It can also treat acne and reduce period pain. TriNessa should not be used by women over 35 who smoke, or women with a history of breast cancer. Remember, oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like herpes and chlamydia—only condoms do that!

Abundant recent evidence shows that there is no causal link between modern birth control and weight gain (aside from the shot, Depo Provera). If weight gain is a concern for you or you experience it after starting birth control, reach out to us so our doctors can discuss your options with you.
