Progesterone is produced in an ovary after an egg matured and was released from it to prevent the release of further eggs. In case of pregnancy levels of progesterone in blood remain high maintaining the womb lining. Thus this hormone 'tricks' the body informing it that ovulation has already occurred and this way it may be used as contraception to prevent pregnancy.

It can also be used to treat severe achne. Dosage and direction Follow all doctor's instructions regarding take of Ortho Tri-Cyclen. Never take it in larger amounts or take it longer than recommended. Take the first 'active' pill on the first day of your monthlies or on the first Sunday after your menstruation starts.
