    I was put on Aleese for 3 months and I noticed my acne was getting a lot worse than normal and I was having serious cramping 2 weeks prior before my actual period. I am/have been on Try-cyclen for about a month now and I love it so much more! My body did not gain any weight (which a lot of reviews say that a lot of people gain weight), acne got amazingly better within the month and I have very lit ... Show Full Comment

    It's soon approaching a year of me taking this BC and I'm so happy with it. My periods are regular now, my acne is better, and my sex drive is up. I've had no pregnancy scares. Took Plan B a few times to ease my partner's mind more than mind. It's my first BC but I have no reason to believe I'll be making any changed for any reason/time soon. The beginning I did have bad m ... Show Full Comment

    Ortho Tri-Cyclen is the second BC pill I tried and, after 5 months and feeling as though my body has adjusted to the hormonal change, I can say I'm truly happy with it. No spotting, light cramping (with my prior BC, the cramping lasted for days and was debilitating), and my period starts on the same day of the pack every month. No pregnancy scares. I will re-review this if things change, but s ... Show Full Comment

I have not experi ... Show Full Comment
