My pharmacy is out of Trivora. I have been taking Trivora for over 10 years without any issues or side effects. Since switching to Enpresse two months ago I have had some of the listed side effects...acne on areas of my body which I have never had before, extreme dry skin on face, cramping after menstrual cycle, daily spotting/bleeding a week + after cycle, along with an extended length of cycle. ...
