    I've been on three different birth control pills through out my life (not at the same time). Ortho Try Cyclen was the first but then Tri Nessa because of the pharmacy switch. They're the same medicine. I've also been on something called Sronyx which to me was practically the Devils poison.... Because it caused most of my hair to fall out and well anywho.. I've never had any side ef ... Show Full Comment

    My experience with this birth control has been something else. I started taking birth control back in December 2015. I was originally prescribed Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, but, like many reviewers, had been switched to TriNessa by the pharmacy. (I had been on Ortho in the past, and had no issues). The first few months of being on TriNessa had been fine. However, things started to go downhill. I first st ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on trinessa for about 3-4 years and it has been great. My periods are light and last 5 days I only have cramps the day before and the first day of my period. It has kept my face clear, although i didnt have acne before, and I have never noticed extreme mood swings. I am petite so I was hoping it would promote weight/breast gain but it did not. Overall a very good BCP!

    Comment:
    I have been on quite a variety of different oral contraceptions over the past 17 years. Trinessa is my favorite. It was suggested to me by my doctor 3 years ago when she was trying to find me the most affordable pill as I did not have health insurance. I was very pleased with how clear my skin was while using this product, compared to other products (including the original Ortho Tri Cyclen). I lat ... Show Full Comment
