Ok I've been on TriNessa for about 2 years. I really like it, I had horrible cramps and would miss work and lay on the bathroom floor so I could be close to the toilet.

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.

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.

Don't take it, don't take it, I repeat, DO NOT TAKE IT. I was on Ortho Tri-Cyclen generic for a few years and had hardly any side effects...but I switched to this, and it makes me moody, depressed, tired, makes my breasts tender, acne gets worse all over my body...and I'm having constant yeast infections. Does what it's supposed to, but the side effects aren't worth it. Find ... Show Full Comment
