    Doc took me off Trivora because I'm over 40 & smoke. Suggested Mirena 1st. What a nightmare! Bled for 2 mos. straight, then every 2 weeks for 7-10 days!

    After being on combo pills for 20 years I felt that I wanted a change. I was very happy with the triphasil/trilevlen but didn't care for the trivora that replaced them. My doctor suggested that I try a mini-pill and prescribed Micronor which I was given the generic Camila.
