I started 3 months ago because I was getting married. About a month after starting my hair started to fall out. It was horrible. It would come out while brushing or in the shower.

I thought it was just stres ... Show Full Comment

I tried to kill myself and ended up in the hospital when I was taking this Tri Sprintec. I cried almost every day, and felt very emotional all the time when I was taking it.

Does the job at preventing pregnancy and regulating your cycle but I have had HORRIBLE anxiety and depression while taking Balziva, like nothing I've ever experienced while taking Ovcon 35. Also, expect your libido to completely disappear. After taking Balziva for three years, I don't recommend it at all and would rather switch to condoms.

Comment:
I've taken Balziva for over three years and I am very happy. I experienced mood swings and breakthrough bleeding only when I started taking it again following a planned pregnancy. Those side effects left after a couple of months taking it as prescribed. My periods are regular, light, and less painful than without birth control. Fortunatley, my sex drive/life is GREAT and has been for years. No ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I experienced breakthrough bleeding with other Bc's. However, this pill regulated my period after a long bout with irregular bleeding. However, I am having to get used to the side-effects...mild nausea and breast tenderness...makes u think you're pregger. But I've taken a test and it was negative (whew). Overall, decent B.C.
