Comment:
I began taking trivora four months ago, my health insurance changed and I had to switch from ortho-lo (which I loved.) I am very unhappy with this drug. I have gained a bit of weight, my periods are significantly heavier, my breasts are swollen and sore all the time, and I have had heavy vaginal discharge since I've been taking trivora.

Yaz and LoEstrin made me gain weight, have extremely sore breasts,extreme mood swings, spotting, hair loss,and cramping and cost me a lot of $$$. Trivora has been amazing! In the 11 months of taking Trivora I've lost over 15 lbs, no breast soreness,and no hair loss! My only complaint is the mood swings but they're controllable, nothing out of the ordinary. HIGHLY RECOMEND TRIVORA! (plus it ... Show Full Comment

I have been on Trivora for about 1 and a half years now. I get very bloated right before I get my period. I have at least 1 migraine every month about a week before my period and it has lowered my sex drive dramatically. I hope the new pill I start taking tomorrow reduces the migraines and brings back my sex drive.I don't want to be on Trivora anymore..

I have been taking Trivora 28s for 5 years and finally have decided to switch. The pill is very effective against pregnancy as I have never had a scare.

I also experience heavy long periods and terrible cramping, bloating, and PMS ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Well, I haven't gotten pregnant... My doctor told me to expect side effects for the first 3 months, which I was expecting anyway. I can tolerate the cramping, that's the least of the problems. I've gained probably about 15-20 lbs since I started taking Trivora. Even that is alright.. ish. But by far the worst thing is the mood swings. I absolutely can't believe what this does to ...
