    Question Isn't Ortho Tri-cyclen and Tri-cyclen the same thing?

    I was almost positive, but in my other thread someone said they're two different bcps.

    "Ortho" is the company that makes "Ortho Tri-cyclen" (and Tri-Cyclen-Lo, etc.)... they have a whole line of BC pills and patches (i.e., OrthoEvra). It could be maybe someone got confused between "triphasic" (pills that give you 3 different doses of hormones throughout your cycle) and Ortho Tri-cyclen?? Just a guess.

    I think that was me... I am taking Tri-Cyclen, and it also says on the package that they're made by "Ortho", and that this company also makes the following pills: Cyclen, Micronor, and a bunch of pills that begin in "Ortho", followed by a number, or a few numbers. So I'm almost positive that Ortho Tri-Cyclen, and Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo are made by a different company.. I am interested to hear what other's know about this as well!

    They are two different bcps, because they have a different amount of hormones in them. I don't remember which is which, but I do know they are different. The Lo is a fairly new medication.
