Birth Control Alternatives to Ortho Evra

Recent findings concerning the potential health hazards of the Ortho Evra birth control patch have led doctors and other healthcare experts to recommend alternative forms of birth control to prospective patients.

Current estimates suggest that more than 4 million women have used the patch since it went on sale in 2002, and several lawsuits have been filed by families of women who died or suffered blood clots while using the patch.

Prospective patients have been encouraged to thoroughly research the potential side effects of Ortho Evra before beginning usage, and those who choose to use other forms of birth control have various options, including the following:


Alesse is a progestin and estrogen combination birth control pill used for the prevention of pregnancy. The ingredients of the medication work by preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and causing changes in the mucus of the cervix which make it difficult for sperm to penetrate and for an egg to implant.

Seasonale Tablets

Seasonale affects the ovulatory and menstrual cycle of women. Seasonale tablets are effective birth control options in that they inhibit ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary), therefore preventing the possibility of pregnancy. Seasonale may also inhibit pregnancy by causing the cervical mucous to thicken, which makes it harder for sperm to move toward the uterus, and reducing the likelihood of attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus.

Triphasil "Morning After Pill"

Triphasil is used to prevent pregnancy and control the menstrual cycle. It also functions as an effective "morning after" pill for emergency contraception.

There are a variety of alternative birth control methods, products and practices available to those who are concerned about the potentially damaging effects of Ortho Evra, including condoms, spermicidal sponges, and diaphragms. However, if you or a loved one has already used the patch and have suffered from dangerous consequences, contact a knowledgeable attorney immediately, as you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain.
