I've been on this BCP for 6 mos now and I will say that its effectiveness has worked fine. I had one episode of break through bleeding. When I do miss, I do double up and never had a missed period.

I did notice some facial br ... Show Full Comment

I've been on tri-nessa for four years now and I haven't had ANY problems. I didn't gain weight, no acne, no sensitivity with my breasts. My periods are light and shortened with NO cramping and I have a tendency to get awful migranes from hormones and those have vanished. The worst part about this pill is taking it everyday and I have missed pills and I don't take it at the EXACT ti ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Since starting this pill, my problem with ovarian cysts has greatly decreased. My skin has cleared up, I have no spotting, and my periods are incredibly regular. I can predict when it will start down to a 1-hour window. I've had zero negative side effects. I switched to this pill from a different pill because of persistent spotting. I wouldn't change to any other pill.
