    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.

    I was completely satisfied with this drug until changes were made to it by the manufacturer earlier this year. I noticed the change in the size of the pills and a new NDC number in March. Without any change in my diet, I am now gaining weight steadily, not that weight gain is a bad thing because when I started taking the pill two years ago after giving birth, I lost down to 122, which being 5' ...

    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.
