Triquilar is an oral contraceptive pill, which is used to prevent unwanted pregnancy. This medicine suppresses ovulation, preventing the eggs to fertilize thus helping in birth control. Continuous use of this medicine results in regular periods and a less painful menstrual cycle. It is a hormonal contraceptive drug and it mainly produces mucus in the area of uterine, which prevents sperm from penetrating the ovum. The medicine should ideally be stored at temperatures between 20 to 25 degrees Celsius.
This drug is a contraceptive pill that is used for birth control. It is a combination of two hormones, Ethinylestradiol and Levonorgestrel. These hormones work together to control pregnancy. This drug prevents normal menstrual cycles, suppresses the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), and prevents egg maturation. It also makes the cervical mucus very thick, which blocks the sperm from entering and fertilizing the egg, thereby preventing pregnancy.
