How does Tri-Sprintec contraceptive work?

Tri-Sprintec, the contraception said to work in one of 3 ways: 1) prevents ovulation (primary), 2) dyhydrating cervical muscous keeping egg and sperm away from each other, and 3) possibly making the fertilized egg unable to attach to the uterine wall. The third of course could be condered abortive, even if unintentional...Is there credence to the possibility of #3...? If so, is there a pill that can be recommended that only works by methods 1 and 2...?? Thanks!

Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your case, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.
1]All contraceptive pills work mainly by preventing ovum formation.
2]Other two mechanisms occur because of the hormone contents in it.
3] You can choose any good quality pill pack. take 21 days tablets and 7 days off; this regime needs to be strictly followed while using any birth control pill.
I hope my answer helps you.
