In the past I've used OTC and tri-sprintec, and this is the first time I've used Trinessa.

My moods have been a source of tension in my relationship with my boyfriend, so I'm not the only one affected.

I have been on this medication for about a week. In that time I've had constant nausea, mood swings, no appetite and I'm constantly tire. I was on ortho tri cyclen lo before this and had no side effects at all, I switched to Trinessa because of my insurance. I'm am going to continue to take it to see if my body adjusts to the bc but at this time I am miserable on it.

I took this as an alternative to Ortho Tri Cyclen and the cost associated with. The price was the only good thing about this. I HATED this pill. I've been on a few different brands in my day and this was the absolute worst. I was constantly moody, emotional and just felt crappy like I was depressed all the time. I hated it. As soon as I quit taking it and it was out of my system, I felt 500 ti ... Show Full Comment

I've never been on birth control before and after this I don't think I want to be. The side effects for this drug are aweful! I've never had acne until taking trinessa. My breasts have increased at least a cup size and are constantly tender (I found it interesting that the size went down the one week I wasn't taking the pill. The worst part is I am constantly depressed, weepy and g ... Show Full Comment
