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.

Comment:
I had been taking Orthotricylcen LO for 4 years, and I was very satisfied. However it started making me bleed during my ovulating periods. My doctor informed me that I could be coming immune to the pill. So they switched me to the Tri-nessa. Horrible cramps and head aches, the whole time I have my period (never experienced that with Ortho). I want to switch back but not if I'm immune to it!
