    I used monessa for a year but asked my doctor to switch due to me getting my period about a week before the placebo pills and then continued with my period during the placebo week. I was switched to trinessa and the switch was awful. I was vomiting 2 days in. I continued to have a horrible headaches and nausea which has not improved after 2 months on it. I also got some cystic acne. I lost almost ... Show Full Comment

    I had been on Ortho Tricylen Lo for 10 years and never had any problem with it. It was extremely effective, no weight gain, no acne. My insurance dropped Ortho and I was switched to the generic, TriNessa. TriNessa has been just as wonderful. Later I attempted to switch to Mononessa in order to skip my monthly cycle(you can't on TriNessa). The switch to Mononessa made me sick for 2-3 days an ... Show Full Comment

    I just had a baby about a year ago and now I'm on the trinessa birth control. I never noticed any side effects until now. I started to get unusual bruises, chest pains and worsening of migraines. I said to myself, I hope I'm not dying or anything because I don't feel sick...but then I researched the side effects of this pill and these were the common side effects. I even went to the do ...

    I am on day four of this bc. This is my third month of being on bc. The first month was Lo Loestrin Fe and it was amazing, had zero side effects and no period. Then to save money the second month I got the generic called Microgestin 1/20 Fe and it made me spot, but no other side effects. I am now on day four of Trinessa and my stomach hurts every day after I take it. I take it with food. I feel li ... Show Full Comment

    I took trinessa due to having a irregular period for the past 4 years. During the very first month, my period was regulated. I was so excited and happy. I since then have decided to switch due to the weight gain I experienced. I am an avid runner trained for a marathon and I was very embarrassed and sad to have gained about 10 pounds. I can tell you this is NOT because of my diet or lack of physic ... Show Full Comment
