I'll give this review as if I were giving it to a friend: I went back on the pill when my normally "like-clockwork" cycle started going haywire on me. I told my new gyno I had previously used TryCyclen, but she opted to prescribe TriNessa (which was fine by me). Now, I am about to start my 3rd pack, and I will admit that the first month was a little hectic for me. I had an odd ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Tri-nessa for 10 years. I've only had spot bleeding like once a year while using this drug. My periods have been on time each month. I've experienced no weight gain while using Tri-nessa. The only thing I wish is that my perionds were lighter.

I agree with the last review, this pil ... Show Full Comment

I was put on trinessa. I had been taking it for three months before I found out that it has been recalled for three years due to ineffectiveness. I am 18. I was on the patch and had to switch because the adhesive was breaking me out. My acne not horribly worse while on the pill. I gained weight like crazy. I lost interest in sex. I guess that's how they can call it birth control, if you're ... Show Full Comment

I had a baby in Dec. and was prescribed Ortho but because of ins. the pharmacy gave me the generic, Trinessa. Since taking this I have seen an overall decline in my health. Weakness, tiredness, no sex drive, dizziness, headaches, constant backaches. I feel horrible! I am almost at the end of this pack, then I quit. No one should ever feel this bad from a medication!!
