    I was switched to Tilia last month because my usual Tri Legest pills were not available. I started spotting after 2 1/2 weeks on this pill, and by the end of week 3, I started having a full, heavy period. On TriLegest I used to get my period 2 days after stopping them and it only lasted 3 days. This period has been very heavy, with large clots. I just had my annual exam last month so my doctor is ...

    I have been on this pill for a full month and like it. It has helped clear up the acne I was given while taking Loestrin FE significantly. Still not as clear as I was but I believe by the end of next month my beautiful clear skin should be back. I've experinced no side effects at all. I was terrified to take it after reading the terrible reviews but over all I'm satisfied with it. Still mi ... Show Full Comment

I have been on Tri Legest for about 8 years now and I have had a terrible reaction to switching to Tilia. First off I had intense cramping and a very heavy 7 day period immediatly upon starting it (even though I had my normal 3 day period the week before). I even went in to see m ... Show Full Comment

    I am only taking this for one month; the pharmacy was out of Tri-legist Fe (generic Estrostep - why does Estrostep have to be so expensive!?) Im on the second week and I am experiencing breast tenderness. I have never experienced this side effect before with any other BC pill...actually I have not experienced this kind of breast sensitivity since puberty! I also think the packaging is a wast ...

    Comment:
    Some months I feel fine on this, but some months I have a lot of breast tenderness and severe mood swings and depression. I was a little skeptical about switching from Estrostep to this generic, but I really want to go back to Estrostep. I have had bad breast tenderness for days and very low energy and bad mood swings.
