Triquilar Kit contraceptive pills contain a combination of two hormones, ethinyloestradiol, a synthetic oestrogen, and levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestogen, which work together to protect against pregnancy.
Preparation for pregnancy depends on a complex interaction between the female sex hormones produced by the ovaries; oestrogen, which stimulates ovulation, and progesterone which prepares the endometrium (lining of the uterus) for implantation of an embryo, as well as other regulating hormones, produced by the hypothalamus in the brain (gonaotrophin releasing hormones) and the pituitary gland (Follicle Stimulating Hormone or FSH and Leutenising Hormone or LH).
Triquilar Kit combined hormonal contraception works by disrupting the normal menstrual cycle, suppressing the release of gonadotrophins (FSH and LH), preventing egg maturation and suppressing ovulation, as well as preventing development of the endometrium, so that a fertilised egg would not be able to implant and grow. Another contraceptive action of Triquilar Kit is that the cervical mucus, which normally changes consistency at ovulation to become thinner, remains thick, forming a physical barrier to sperm.

Triquilar Kit is a low dose combined triphasic oral contraceptive pill and is used as an effective means of birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Triquilar Kit contraceptive pills contain two hormones combined at low doses in a single pill, with three different fixed dose combinations, designed to simulate the three phases normally seen during the menstrual cycle.
Each pack of Triquilar Kit contains one month’s supply of pills of which there are 21 hormone-containing pills, colour-coded to identify the different dose combinations for the three hormonal phases. You will then have 7 pill-free days to allow each monthly cycle to end with a withdrawal bleed.
When using Triquilar Kit for contraception, you will probably find that your periods become more regular and you may also experience lighter, less painful menstruation and an improvement in pre-menstrual symptoms, like bloating, swelling or weight gain related to fluid retention, also improvement in acne and reductions in greasiness of the skin and hair.
