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.

So 3 weeks of pain, I have an appt. to see my OB to swith my medication.

I have been taking this b/c for a little over a year now. At first it worked without side effects but recently I have been experience a severe drop in sex drive, a severe rise in mood swings and vaginal discharge.

I started TriNessa to deal with an acne problem. On the first try, I became depressed and my periods had more cramping. After about three months, I switched to a different pill, but I started having break-through bleeding. I am back on TriNessa and have been for over a year. I no longer have mood/swings, and my cramping is controllable. It works just fine now.
