    Since starting on TriNessa 4 months ago, I have gradually started experiencing several side effects. I immediately started having severe breast tenderness and moodiness, and over time I have developed absolutely no sex drive, I'm irritable and don't ever want to be touched, my contacts irritate my eyes (I never imagined this could be a side effect of a birth control pill), I've starte ...

    While I do believe Trinessa is an effective medicine, I've been really sick to my stomach while taking it this last cycle. A bit of background on me, I've taken Ortho Tricyclen since I was 12, started for acne at the time. I've stayed on the brand since then until about 5 years ago.
